Hello! I am taking the MCAT on July 31st. I am quite nervous! :)
Ive been preparing through, of course, rigorous note review. Predominantly, however, Ive been preparing through the aamc exams. I wanted to post some of my scores, and ask any knowledgeable members how they may correlate, if at all, with actual MCAT performance.

AAMC #3 - (P11, V10, B10) 31
AAMC #4 - (P12, V10, B12) 34
AAMC #5 - (P12, V13, B11) 36
AAMC #6 - (P11, V10, B10) 31
AAMC #8 - (P15, V10, B9) 34
AAMC #9 - (P14, V12, B10) 36
AAMC #10 - (P12, V9, B11) 32

I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

sigh. i wish my scores looked like that. at least maybe i have you beat on gpa, which unfortunately doesn't matter nearly as much. wish i could give up .3 on my gpa for 3 extra points on my mcat score.

i'll be writing on the 31st as well. good luck my friend.

Are you doing anything to prepare, or are you just relaxing the last couple days before the exam?
Good luck to you as well.

i want to prepare more than i am doing right now, but at the cost of my sanity i'm not going overboard. i still have another aamc i'll be taking. meeting up with my study partner tomorrow and wednesday. thursday if i even touch a book, it'll just be to refresh simple things.

Hah I got the exact same breakdown for AAMC #3 as you did. Hopefully the rest of my scores look as good as yours do.

Who knows, you might even surprise yourself. I was optimistic going into the test because I had already taken it before, but I knew that my aamc scores were borderline...

AAMC #3 - (P9, V13, B10) 32
AAMC #4 - (P9, V12, B10) 31
AAMC #5 - (P10, V11, B10) 31
AAMC #6 - (P10, V12, B11) 33
AAMC #8 - (P12, V11, B9) 32
AAMC #9 - (P10, V12, B10) 32

Looked like I was a dead-on lock for a 31 or 32, right?
Actual scores (from 6/18/09 test): P11, V12, B12 , WS O = 35O
The main two things that the practice tests do for you is to get your timing down, and to minimize the intimidation factor of the actual test. Just go there knowing that you know your stuff and you'll do great!

Those look really good. I was averaging a 35 (AAMC 10 killed me too), and I got a 40 on the real deal. You obviously know your stuff. Go in with confidence and you should do awesome. :luck:

hey, may i ask what went different (or if it was just pure fate :)) on the real deal that got you a 40, compared to the practice tests?

I'm averaging a 38 on the aamc and would love to break the 40 barrier. I'm convinced I need a high score given my young age... (i'm applying now, as a rising sophomore)

The style of the test was different. On the real deal, I felt that you didn't need to *know* as much, rather than you needed to be able to deduce stuff from passages. BS had been killing me on the practice tests, but i ended up with a 15 on the real thing because I could figure out what was going on in the passages.

Also, I didn't take the practice tests all that seriously. But I know the feel of the test was different and I'm definitely stronger at figuring things out than just blindly memorizing facts.

Okay, thanks :)

I know you've probably heard this too many times, but congrats on your 40! You won't have any trouble getting into the school of your choice!
