    I am trying to find out the exact score system, i can't find it on line.

    <a href="http://bardeen.physics.csbsju.edu/mcat/" target="_blank">http://bardeen.physics.csbsju.edu/mcat/</a>

    that is the closet one that I can find.

    I want to know the actual table, such as I can find out my score by calculating how many I have missed.

    thanks.

    That I know of, there is no "set in stone" table. The MCAT is based on a curve, so your score for that test will depend on how everyone else who took it that day did.

    Getting a certain number wrong will be one score in April, but that same number wrong could be a different number in August.

    I just read a book from kaplan, it says that you can still score a 15 on bio science even if you missed 15 questions.

    so there should be some kind of scoring system, shouldn't it?

    You can score a 15 on the Bio section ONLY if no one else in the country missed less than 15 questions.

    If you're the only person who missed 15 questions, and everyone else missed 16 or more, then you will have a 15 score. If a lot of people missed less than 15 questions, then you will have a lower score. Again, it all depends how well everyone else did that day on the test.
