Just wondering if anyone has not finished a section on the mcat and gotten an 8 or higher.

according the AAMC scale you can get 30 wrong and sitll get an 8 on PS and BS.

I think you can miss up to the mid 20's and still get an 8.

I took the MCAT last August, and didn't finish 1-2 of the verbal reasoning passages and 1-2 of the physical sciences passages and recieved a 9 on verbal and 8 on physical sciences. Just thought I'd let you know from experience. Took the test again today and once again didn't finish the verbal reasoning section and was 3 questions short on phy sci.

I didn't have time to read the last section in verbal, so with 5 minutes to go I sort of skimmed and filled in bubbles. I got a 10.

I also marked all C's on the last passage for April MCAT verbal and I got a 10.

It kind of makes you wonder how you would have scored if you would have finished.

When I took the exam last August, I had 20 bubbles left to fill in and got an 8 on VR. I must have guessed well.
