    I m scheduled to take this frustrating test by june 13. my scores are not consistent. I am scoring 11 and 12 on PS and BS on aamc. But the kaplan PS is killing me. I get 10's on the day i am lucky. Today i got a 6 and i wanted to cry. I dont want to extend the test because i have been studying for this for the past six months. but i need some motivation going into this test. Help please??
    Also my VR fluctuates a lot. it ranges from 8-11. Am i in trouble? :scared:

    no you're not in trouble, jump into our 'Friday the 13th-- June Club' thread, the people there are very motivating and have great advice...

    as for my opinion...your kaplan and aamc scaled scores should be similar as kaplan gives a huge curve...one 6 could be just a bad day..i wouldn't worry but check out that other thread...good luck

    That's because we're awesome :thumbup:

    AAMC is all that matters!!! If the kaplan's are discouraging you, then stop taking them! The kaplan PS is ridiculously hard. Some people have scores that are lower, some have higher. So you're just one of those people who score lower on kaplan....no big deal! Learn from your mistakes. But use aamc to predict your score. :luck:

    sooo after that verbal yesterday I didn't even bother checking the answers because I was disappointed with the result.... last night I was doing the EK verbals and it went well... so I just re-did the 10 verbal and this time got an 11... 12 questions more than what I got yesterday...although this could may well be attributed to already reading the passages I'm still happy !

    Seconded, ignore the Kaplan. Use it to fill gaps in your knowledge but do not worry about the scores.
