View Full Version : How is the PATI marked
01-07-2006, 06:06 PM
I know nobody really knows what precentage is the passing mark, but I was wondering if I do bad on one part of the test(syllogisms), and ace everything else, can I still pass?
Some feedback would be really appreciated

it doesnt matter how you do on a certain section. You just have to have a passing mark in total.
Hope yuo know what I mean. Im tired.

This is one of my BIGGEST criticism of the entire process of pursuing a career in law enforcement. I do not mind having to pay for the tests however, it frustrates me to no end that ATS withholds how they are evaluating us. I mean, yesterday was my second time writing the PATI and I have absolutely no idea how I did on the first PATI. Did I achieve less than %50 or less than %75.....
HOWEVER, I was speaking to my sister-in-law yesterday who has previously written the LSAT exams. She said that some of the exams she has written in the past are scored based on the class average...meaning that it changes with every sitting. In order to be succesful you would need to score at least the average of those writing it with you.
Reason for this is, because they change the questions on the test periodically and one test may be slightly harder than the previous. So in order to ensure that the process is fair between the two classes then the class average is the passing mark.
(Makes sense to me, what about you?)
