    I have attached a chart that I got off from the AAMC website. Can the mods get this stickied? This seems to be a frequently asked question!

    You have not heard about test X yet? It is definitely the best predictor of your real score. Only thing is you have to 200$ for it, and you can only see it from 8 - 4:30 twice a year.

    I believe the first set of numbers is for PS (77-77).

    Then VR(59-60), and lastly BS (74-77).

    Will someone be kind enough to post (or PM me) only the answers to AAMC #7? My answer key (some of them anyway) doesn't match with the solutions manual that I have for #7. I will really appreciate it, but it is for some reason against SDN Forum policy, I totally understand. Thanks

    i am sorry for bringing up this really, really really old thread, but i was wondering if those numbers such as 76-77 the total number of questions you get right? or like a percentage of the questions you get right?

    it's the total number of questions answered correctly. this is surprising to me, because in my kaplan tests, there are only 52 questions in the phsyical science part.

    I'm pretty sure those are the total numbers. This thread is old (circa 2005), which was when the paper and pencil version of the MCAT was still being administered. The "Old" Paper and Pencil tests were longer (PS and BS each had 77 questions), so I think that's where those numbers are coming from. If I find an updated/more frequent converter, I'll post a link.

    The old MCAT had 77 questions in BS/PS and 60 in VR. There are now 52 in BS/PS and 40 in verbal.
