Is AAMC III a poor indicator?

Discussion in 'MCAT Discussions' started by ancientmd, Aug 4, 2002.

  1. I just took this and thought the verbal was different and the sciences were easier.... Anyone else think the verbal was somewhat hard/ambigous?

  3. i found aamc 3 verbal is be easier than aamc 5 and 6, and the science to be a bit harder.

    anyone else have any opinions?

    i thought as a whole, number III was harder, i went down six points total from AAMC V to AAMC III. the verbal wasn't that bad, but i think the science was a little nit-picky

    Subtract 6 points from your AAMC III score and that should give you a rough gauge as to how well you should perform on test day, assuming luck goes your way.

    Kidding :eek:

    Relax folks, think of it this way. If you go over the solution to every problem, you have the same starting knowledge base with regards to the aamc problems as anyone else (assuming you score isn't outrageously low). It's all about learning... Athletes don't set world records during training, they save that for test (ie, race) day.

  8. heehee =D that was funny...

    seriously though, verbal was easier, i think verbal is the one that fluctuates the most, at least for me, because if i get interesting passages, i do well, if not, i can barely finish...
