    I miss 4 questions on PS/BS and I'm at an 11. Really now?

    I mean, this leaves such a small difference between a 32 (11-10-11) and a 40 (15-10-15). Is this really how it is on test day?

    Check how the e-MCAT resource does things... the curves are usually not that strict, but it is not far off. Don't expect to miss 3 questions and come out with a 14 or 4 questions and a 13. Some test iterations you may be able to miss 5-6 or more and come out with an 11. Remember that you are on the far (good) end of the bell curve when scoring so high.

    Curves are pretty steep at the top, especially for VR and BS.
