How come perfect scores on test 5R are 12's? Is this an accurate score range for the April MCAT? I thought each section was out of 15...:confused:

Are you reading the right scale?

Thanks for the breakdown.

In the 5R that I purchased through AAMC, the only conversion available is on the page before the last breaking down as a completely different breakdown as you posted. I guess I'll call them up and ask them

*Edit: Just read on top of the breakdown: " Although scaled scores from 1 to 15 are possible, for the purpose of interpreting scores on this test, extreme scores have been combined in the conversion table."

In other words, " Don't worry about 12+ scores, you ain't getting one" :laugh:
