1/3 of the verbal is RC, so that's about 3 passages.

Does "about" mean that it could be two or four passages?
I know that one should expect 14-15 RC; (14-15 SC and 11-13 CR).
And theoretically one can get 4 passages each followings by 3 or 4 questions.

I got 4 passages.

Also, be ready to get a passage around Q35. You should save enough time for this one, as you will be nearing the end of exam and time limit. Moreover yuou will be drained out.

Bad news Smile
But this could be a good sign - if you perform well on exam you get more diffecult tasks.

Anyway thank you.
