Accidentally posted this to med student forum.

I've gotten about 80% right on C/P Section Bank in two slightly overtimed settings (did 51 questions in one setting and 49 in another, 37/51 on the first half, and 42/49 on the second half both done in about an hour and 30 minutes). I was wondering if the consensus was that two-three of the passages on the real AAMC was like the section bank (as in the section bank is supposed to prepare you for the hardest 30% of the exam). Or nowadays, is it more trending towards like 50-60% of the real deal. I've been looking at the score excel sheet which posts percentage on question packs, and AAMC FL and Sample Test and compares it to the real deal, but there aren't too many comparisons with section bank. Some guidance would be helpful, especially from recent June/July MCAT takers.

I got over 80% on the C/P SB for my first MCAT and got a 129. Mind you that SB did not help at all for that test since it was a pure Physical Chemistry. Got about a 80 on the B/B as well but did awful on the P/S one. So yeah they don't really correlate that well.
