    Is this the general view? I've taken AAMC 3-7 and average 30-31. So I should count on it dropping a few points on the actual =/ ?

    The consensus is that people score within +/- 2 points, which means you could score below, higher or dead on your practice score. Again this is USUALLY the case and there are many people who will fall outside the normal deviation.

    People generally find that the real thing seemed more difficult but end up scoring around their practice average
