    I just took all 5 exams on DAT Bootcamp. I'm confused with how the scoring of the sections work. For example, Orgo exam 5. I got 20 out of 30 correct and thats equivalent to a 20? Isn't that more like a 17-18?

    What would my predicted orgo score would be if Im getting consistent 20s?

    thanks!

    DAT BC does exactly what the actual DAT does. It bases your scores off of percentiles of other students taking it. This has to do with the difficulties of each test and how students take them. So for test 5 , most kids probably got less questions right, which would boost what the score would be because a higher percentile of kids are getting questions wrong. I know for one BC test on OC I got 25/20 and that was a 21. It just depends on each version of the test just like the actual DAT.
