So I received my GRE scores back; I only scored a 5/6 on the analytical writing section (81st percentile). Given my program, this is problematic enough that I need to address it on my grad app.
The score is graded off of two essay responses, and I'm supremely confident that I scored a 6/6 on the one I understood (I edited it and it was great), and a 4/6 on the other question because I was very confused about what an "expressway" was. I spent five minutes trying to understand the question and then I ran out of time to edit it.
Wikipedia says that Canadians use this term, but I've never heard of it outside of vaguely understanding it is a term used for highway speed roads in America. I presumed it linked hickville point A to urban point B without entry or exit points, like an "express bus" doesn't have stops between A and B. I critiqued it saying the hickville commuters wouldn't be paying taxes to the city but reaping the benefits of working in the city, etc.
I signed something saying I wouldn't say what questions I was tested on, so I won't post further info, but can you please clarify what an expressway is?
