Anyone feel on tilt during the MCAT?

    I was scoring well on my AAMC FLs, but when I was taking the real thing, I felt a bit on tilt due to the adrenaline and anxiety. During a practice test, I would say I'd go through the questions and answers really confidently and quickly, while on the MCAT I was fumbling around and more confused than normal. I'd have to read the passage only once during practice tests, but ended up reading passages 2-3 times on the real thing.

    Has anyone felt this? Should I be expecting a lower score than my FL averages?

    That's why it's best to stimulate testing conditions as much as possible. I basically trained myself to feel the same stress and nervousness as I would feel on the real one by pretending whatever score I got on the FL would be my real score.
