The PAT is considered separately. AA is everything but PAT. TS is all the science tests. I would advise picking up a copy of the DAT prep booklet from the ADA, it has a chart in the back that explains how to convert a raw score to the scaled one.

Take your 5 academic sections (RC, Gen chem, Ochem, Bio, and QR). Add them up and divide by 5= your academic ave. Take bio, ochem, and gen chem and divide by 3 =total science. Pat is on its own team. Its a pretty lame section if you ask me

The TS formula doesn't work for me. I even added the math to it, still doesn't work out. Where did you get this info? It would be a point or 2 more than my actual TS. I'm curious about how they calculate it too.

The AA is a simple average of Bio, Org, chem, math and RC.

the TS is a scaled score based on the number correct for Bio, Chem, Org.

Some pre-dental books have the conversion table.
