I don't think they bother to adjust the scale for different tests, and the scores in the sciences seem to be somewhat inflated.
According to this scale on Kaplan FL-2, I scored a 36 (14 from PS with +67, 9 from VR with +49, 13 from BS with +64). Either that or Kaplan FL-2 is extremely easy. This exam's PS is the only PS that I manage to finish on time with high accuracy. On all the others, I'm forced to guess 30%-40% of the questions because there are too many tough passages to decipher within that time frame. Anyone else with similar experiences?

Man, every guide is so different. Here is EK the verbal 101 scale:

<16 1
16-19 2
20-23 3
24-26 4
27-29 5
30-33 6
34-36 7
37-40 8
41-44 9
45-48 10
49-52 11
53-55 12
56-57 13
58-59 14
60 15


I was so happy because i just got 45 for the first time (a 10), but in kaplans scale a 45 is an 8. Maybe they are scaled differently and cannot really be compared by raw score, i dont know?
