    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.

    April 2002 MCAT, very breifly skimmed the last two passages, made a bunch of guesses, fortunate to get a 12
