65% on the topicals probably equates to about a 10. but the real MCAT will seem like a joke compared to the topicals if you are taking the MCAT in April. if you're taking it in August they might be similar in difficulty. In any case the exam is curved so in theory it shouldn't matter.

On average, the August MCAT is no more difficult than the April MCAT. They are about the same. The AAMC has said this many times in their forum.
