For those who have taken the DAT in 2016... What were your average scores in BC and / or Genius like compared to the real one? How representative were the practice tests in terms of difficulty?

I am aiming 23+ to compensate for my low GPA. I've seen varying answers to the threads like this, but I wanna hear it from more recent timeframe.
Bootcamp avg
Bio ~22 (one random 26)
GC 23
OC 19 (one random 29??)
PAT 23

Genius avg

My DAT Genius average was Bio 24, GC 23,OC 22 and BC Bio 25, GC 23, OC 22.
On the real DAT, I got Bio 24, GC 23, and OC 30.
Both are good sources to study. I found DAT genius reading comprehension very similar to my reading on the real DAT.

I have a fairly low GPA and wanted a 23/24+ too to compensate. Genius I avged like 19 BIO 23/24 Gchem 20 OC and BC I avged 21 on BIO 23 GChem and like 21 OC I think. I agree with genius being good for RC.

BC Averages/Real:
Bio: 19/20
GC: 21/21
OC: 19/21
PAT: 21/21
RC: 22/19
QR: 19/22

I'm a voracious reader, so I'm still shaken from my irl RC score... Probably was me choking or being overconfident moreso than BC not preparing me. I think you'll get a decent score, but not sure if it'll be quite as high as you'd like? My very unofficial 2 cents
