    I think the score conversion responds accordingly to the fact that its hard. Kaplan usually has really lenient grading scale while the actual aamc doesn't. If Kaplan is hard,the aamc is 100x harder. I experienced the tragedy. I'm about to do so again...mwahahahahaha (going crazy) :eek:

    for kaplan verbal, the questions were really hard. The aamc ones seems to be simplier..

    Yea...it did....sigh....

    As I was taking it (last august), it felt as if I got less than a 5 (actually got a 9). But I'm going to retake it. Now I'm just doing a verbal test a day until July to hopefully improve.

    I don't know why my verbal ability are so terrible. I swear I can read...I think haven't really tried haha. But I'm just trying to read Op/ed stuff and do lots of passages. I hope my score will go up.

    When are you retaking

    are you doing the Kaplan FL's online or on paper? I only have the paper ones, i wish i had online access since I think they may have shortened it.
