# Ek verbal 101 scoring

Am I ******ed or is this a tricky scoring system.

The tests are out of 40, but to calculate the scaled score, the raw score is out of 60. Do I calculate the percentage correct out of 40 and multiply it to 60?
Thanks

The raw score is supposed to be out of 40. Do you have the second edition of the book? If so, then that's probably a mistake.

That's a mistake in the EK Verbal 101 2nd Edition. Go with the VR scale for AAMC CBT #10:

14 50-51 39-39 50-50
13 49-49 38-38 47-49
12 46-48 37-37 46-46
11 44-45 34-36 43-45
10 41-43 31-33 39-42
9 38-40 29-30 35-38
8 33-37 27-28 32-34

Is this scale they use to grade all MCAT test? So I can use this scale to find my overall score on practice exams?

No, the actual MCAT does not use a score scale. All questions are curved against other people who had the same question.
