Any one taken AAMC VI yet? What did you guyz think. I personally just got done with it and I'd say it had a tough verbal and a few things that I did not know in PS. I also had some trouble with few BS problems since I had never seen such things. I'll have to wait for the score and see. ;)

The second to last verbal passage is killer. It was about formalist critics. Can't tell you much more about it. Just so happens that it also has the most questions :mad:

The one on the invisible hand was pretty bad as well.

Well, I just got done taking the AAMC VI also and I graded it and all I can say is I am quite dissapointed. I thought the verbal sections was very tough. I did really well on the first 4 passages and then after that I just lost my concentration....ended up with a 7 on it :rolleyes: I got a 9 in physics and an 8 in Bio. It sucks cause I got a 32 on AAMC V so now I have no idea where I stand. I am going to take AAMC IV in a couple of days so hopefully I can get that 32 again!!

i just finished aamc 6 and don't know what to think either...
i got a 33 on aamc 4, 28 on aamc 5, and then a 29 today (11, 9,9)
it would suck if i missed the 30 mark by one point on the real thing!
any suggestions as to how i can improve within the next WEEK? (yikes, can't believe it's in a week..)

I felt the same way about this test as you guys. On the Princeton Review practice tests, I've been scoring in the 29-34 range. On AMCAS IV, I scored 10-11 V, 10-11P, and 10-11B. On AMCAS V, I scored 11V, >/= 12P, 11B. But I just took AMCAS VI a few days ago and I scored 7V, 9P, 10B. I got frantic at the end of the verbal and didnt finish. On top of that, I am so studied out and haven't been doing much for the past week. I'm hoping a little break from the material is a good thing.

Nero,

How did you know it was a 12 or a 13 in the sciences. The online version of the test VI just gives 12 and above.

danwsu -- i totally agree with you on the verbal section on VI. i just finished the test today and the verbal section hurt my head a lot. the stupid "invisible hand" one drove me nuts! anyway, i got through it okay...


i scored relatively the same on IV, V, and VI.... when i took the MCAT in April, my score was 2 points higher than what i got on IV and V. i did a little better on VI today so hopefully my score on Saturday will reflect that.


good luck everyone :)

I've heard thet AMCAS V is similar to the real deal. However I've also read a quote by an AMCAS MCAT test maker that the test has been "suprisingly consistant" since 1995.

I was also pretty dissapointed with my VI score. I went back over the questions I got wrong and tried to figure out the right answer before seeing which was correct and I "should have" had 10 of them right.

The key, at least for me, is to SLOOOW down when reading the question and making sure I know exactly what it's asking and wants. On Saturday I just need to CHILL!

Do you guys think PS was kinda too easy to be true? I usually have trouble with this section, but found the PS section in VI to be pretty straight forward.

I know what you mean!

For example, as I was reading your quote, I misinterpreted it as "surprisingly constant" rather than "surprisingly consistant".

This actually happened to me today on a verbal practice test, the answer was in the passage verbatim, the answer was "barroom". The answer choices had "bathroom" & "barroom". Needless to say, I got this one wrong :laugh:

Got to learn how to stay chill.

that's so funny, the bathroom/barrom thing happened to me too, and a couple of my friends.
i'm actually going through the exam, and i could have gotten at least five PS questions right if i hadn't zoned out

I've been having the same problem. Sometimes i'll skim over the stem so quickly i end answering some imaginary question that bears only a faint resemblance to the original question.

To avoid this, i'm now trying to force myself to actively read the question stems by making sure to underline the key words in the stems. This forces me to slow down and actually read the damn things.

The first five passages seemed WAY too easy. After that, the test seemed pretty much on par with other AAMC exams.

Where are you at in Cali?

For what it's worth, I took AAMC VI the week before my april mcat and got the same score, same breakdown.

But keep in mind alot of factors influence your score on test day besides adequate prep I had a great tesing room, great proctor..could not have gone more smoothly...
