    I have taken multiple practice tests and have done very well on the biological science and the physical science sections. However, I cannot manage to do well (over a 9) on the VR. I find it very difficult to read and analyze on the comp. I know everyone has to go through this, but what discrepancy b/n the VR and BS/PS sections will hurt me?

    I'm in the exact opposite ordeal. I can easily score in the teens on the verbal but I'm in the 8-10 range in the BS and PS. I'm just hoping I can kill the VR on the real thing (13-15) and just do okay on the other two and hope for a 30+.

    This is probably better suited for discussion in the MCAT discussions forum.

    Moving.



    Side note: I got in with a 11PS, 9VR, 12BS

    I did have some trouble getting in, but it wasn't because of my MCAT.

    "With out powers combined...." Haha jk. I have just practiced and practiced and practiced but I just cannot do the VR. I've always had trouble in that area. Oh well. It'll be over with soon.

    Practice some more. At first I was only getting 8s and 9s on my VR, 10 practice tests later I got a 12 on the real deal.
