On the AAMC website on the distribution of scores, to me they seem significantly higher on the April exam. I had heard that April scores were genereally a little better but on the graph it seems that this year there was a big difference. MY Question is, is it always like this or did they change some curving ?

must have just been a good testing population. I believe the scores are averaged across tests, not just to one sitting (i.e. they must reuse some passages and experimental ones). If they didnt the average would be 24 for every testing population. That is just my guess.
