Can anyone help me predict my score on the Aug. 20th MCAT based on all my past practice exam scores?



Below I've included all of the scores for the full length exams I've taken to date, as well as what day I took them. I began studying from scratch on June 22nd where I started reviewing content and didn't take my first full length exam until August 1st. I'm a bit concerned about reflective all of the practice exams I've taken are of the real MCAT both in difficulty and similarity of questions.

1. August 1, 2016 - NS full length #1 - 512 (130/127/127/128)
2. August 3rd, 2016 - Kaplan full length #1 - 512 (128/128/128/128)
3. August 5, 2016 - TPR full length #1 - 506 (125/126/127/128)
4. August 8th, 2016 - Kaplan full length #2 - 515 (128/129/131/127)
5. August 12th, 2016 - AAMC Scored full length - 513 (130/125/129/129)
6. August 17th, 2016 - AAMC unscored sample - (90%/89%/90%/92%)

I converted the percentages on the sample test using the spreadsheet in the side bar of r/MCAT on Reddit and it gave me 520 (130/130/130/130).

I would encourage people not to think that that score is really well earned, the sample test is much easier than what I assume the real thing will be.

One things I'm concerned with is that I bombed the CARS section in the scored AAMC exam which is supposed to be the most representative.

As well, I did the C/P Section Bank yesterday for the first time and only got 76/100 correct. I was not too happy with that as I expected to do better and found the passages to be quite confusing. I do not think I'd do well if all of the C/P passages on the real thing were of comparable difficulty.

The AAMC FLs are easier than the real thing but are the most representative of the kind of questions that you will encounter in style and format. The Section Bank is representative of the hardest questions on the MCAT. So you can expect the MCAT to fall somewhere in between with respect to difficulty. No one can predict your score with any certainty but most people score in the range of their AAMC FLs.

520, I am guessing your CARS on the scored was a fluke. Really analyze that section and learn from it. I would do a lot of AAMC VR sections from old AAMC to be sure but I would think you can score very high.

The AAMC is the best indicator of your score from what I've seen here on sdn. Also a lot of the fellow sdn-ers scored slightly higher on the actual MCAT than on their scored aamc. I'm going to guess that you'll get somewhere from 517-520. (You should post an update when you receive your score).

520+ I'd imagine. Your practice scores look a lot like mine. For reference:

Unscored FL (taken early in prep) 71%/91%/90%/93%
Scored FL (taken 4 days before exam): 516 (129/128/131/128)
Kaplan FL average: 510 or so.

Real: 521 (130/132/128/131)
