45 for me. Thanks for the fast work. For the Twilight works the ones with one-word titles are the odd numbers if that helps anyone the next time they appear although tonight may conclude their usage on the tests.

I think it is a good test to for a starting point to round up capable college contestants. Good luck to all of you hopeful for the next step in the process.

47/50, missing 7,19, and 41. Seriously hoping for an invite to the interview; I actually have things to talk about now that I'm in college.

Nobody knows for sure, but 35 has been uniformly acknowledged as the cutoff, I'm sorry to say.

Compared to when I participated in the adult audition, I can now put down anecdotes without straining to think of a 4th or 5th one. And if I get an in-person audition this time, hopefully NATO won't be in Nashville where I got whacked in the head with a sign as I'm heading to the audition like what happened in Chicago.

This sounds like a good anecdote should you get the in-person opportunity.

40/50 and I missed some really easy ones like "inadmissible" and To Kill a Mockingbird. Guess there's always next year.

Generally, it's been agreed upon that 35/50 is sufficient for being in the pool to be called for an in-person audition. It's not canon, but it was the once-official number, and the board has generally done a pretty good job at charting scores and correlating them with who gets auditions. Best of luck!

That's assuring to hear - I was just being a little self-depreciating seeing all of the excellent scores. Thanks!

Some/most of the scores you see here are just those of us taking it for fun/from transcripts. So don't let us bug you. :)

Congrats on a nice score, and good luck with the rest!

42 here. Felt a bit easier than the regular online tests. I usually get in the high 30s on those.
