Hey everyone, I was just wondering how the grading curves on Kaplan compare to those of the real MCAT? Are scorers usually better, worse...etc??

The consensus around here is that they are harder than the real deal. My opionion on it is the verbal is easier than the real thing and it is easier to score really high in PS because the scale is so lenient (meaning stupid mistakes are less detrimental to your score).

dave,

what if you didn't eat breakfast before the last practice because you woke up late. . . (NOT going to happen tomorrow). . . . so you score a leetle lower than you have been. . .



I've heard take your average of three highest and then add two - four points?
If you're around low 30s, you think this is right?
(I know it gets harder to score higher when your score is already high)

thanks
nic

My final Kaplan practice exam was 1 point lower than my real score.
