jefguth said:Nope, they don't just average all the subsections. The total score is determined by adding up the total number of correct answers on all sections of your OAT and then placing you into the appropriate percentile band by ranking your total number of correct responses with everyone else.
polkadot said:That's true for the Total Science score, but the Academic Average is the "composite score representing the average of qr, rc, phys, bio, gchem, and ochem standard scores" [abbreviations are mine]. That's probably why the TS score is used for entering class stats; it's a better representation of how candidates preformed v. their peers.
I don't know if they round the AA up, but they definitely rounded mine down
