Anyone who has taken Altius FLs, how representative do you think they are? I heard they were similar to NS but I did a lot worse on the Altius exam I just took compared to NS. My scores are fluctuating so much I'm not sure what to think anymore.
5/15Kaplan FL1: 499 (123/125/126/125)
5/21 Princeton Demo Test: 498 (123/125/123/127)
6/8 Kaplan FL2: 504 (125/128/126/125)
6/24 AAMC Sample (unscored): 78%, 83%, 71%, 80%
6/29 Kaplan FL3: 506 (126/127/127/126)
7/3 NS FL1: 512 (128/127/127/130)
7/9 Altius FL3: 503 (124/126/126/127)
Should this altius score worry me? Was the good NS score just a fluke?
There's barely any info or data about how altius scores compare to the real thing so I have no idea what to make of it.
