Exam-Results Similar scores at same day!

has any1 else noticed that results for different ppl that comes out on the same day are veryyyyy close to each other, i mean if a thread was posted on the 8th of the month for example ,the results can range from early 230s to 240s.. and another thread results thats posted on the 28th of the month for example has results that ranges from 240s to 260s?? LOL am i being paranoid .. i am getting the sense that taking the exam during the 1st days of the month is a better guarantee of a higher score ofcourse provided that u prepared well :S !! i dunno anyone else has an explanation ???

you're being paranoid.

there are no shortcuts. doesn't matter what day you do it, all results are normalized.

the ppl who score 230+ are more prone to post results on these threads as those who score lower are less likely to advertise it.
