    Hello,

    I took the MCAT last August and received a 9 on PS, 8 on VR, and 8 on BS for a 25 cumulative score. Will be taking it again on April 28th. Can someone tell me if I am doing well enough for 28+ on MCAT. I have retaken some AAMC and did new TBR CBT.

    Practice tests from last year:
    PS/VR/BS
    AAMC 3: 8/9/9 (26)
    AAMC 4: 10/8/9 (27)
    AAMC 5: 9/8/10 (27)
    AAMC 7: 7/7/10 (24)
    AAMC 8: 11/11/9 (31)
    AAMC 9: 11/9/11 (31)
    AAMC 10: 8/7/9 (24)
    AAMC 11: 9/9/10 (28)

    AVG: 27.25

    Practice Test from this year

    AAMC 3: 10/9/11 (30)
    AAMC 4: 11/7/11 (29)
    AAMC 5: 11/9/11 (31)
    AAMC 7: 10/11/10 (31)
    AAMC 8: 10/10/11 (31)

    AVG: 30.4

    TBR1: 9/8/10 (27)
    TBR2: 12/6/10 (28)
    TBR3: 12/9/8 (31)
    TBR4: 11/9/8 (28)
    TBR5: 6/7/8 (21)
    TBR6: 13/13/9 (35)
    TBR7: 9/9/12 (30)

    AVG: 28.57

    I know the AAMC are inflated because it is my second time taking them, but the TBR are fresh so aside from TBR5 which was very hard how am I looking for the real deal on April 28th? Thanks

      I don't know what happened they say +2 or -2 of average so I got the -2 end, the biology section on the real deal was very hard in my opinion. I didn't receive less than a 9 on the biology section of the AAMC practice tests and on the real I got an 8 which was surprising. The real test had 50% organic on the BS section and I did feel drowsy during the BS section. This time I am taking caffeine pills which I have been taking before the VR section.

        I just did TBR 5 .. and i bombed it .. especially the PS section.. I got overall 27.. I am frustrated .. my TBR scores were TBR1 29, TBR2 31 , TBR3 30, TBR4 30, TBR5 27.. My goal is a 34-35 on MCAT .. these scores are degrading me and making me lose hope in myself..
        I have put alot of work in this and iam not reaching my goal.. Plus I have not been seeing any topics that iam weak with..
        :(

          I feel the same way especially since it's my second time studying. The TBR5 seems to be hardest for most people so don't let TBR5 discourage you. I would be ecstatic with a 30+ on the real deal. Just took TBR7 today and got 9/9/12.
