Hi,

Out of my own curiosity, is it possible on the test to have two RC passages pop out consecutively??

Absolutely! It's not at all uncommon. You have to be careful to avoid burnout from all that sustained reading. (A little micro-break of a few seconds between passages is helpful for some test-takers.) It can also help to keep track of how many reading comp passages you've encountered, in order to fine-tune your timing strategy. If you are well into the test and you've only had 1 or 2 passages, be aware that you may need some extra time to handle those. On the other hand, if you have completed several passages and are slightly behind on time, you may be able to catch up when you start seeing more sentence correction.

THanks for your reply , I just encountered two consecutive RC passages on the free manhattan test. I was shocked, I was just ready to be relieved from finishing the first one.
