    The conversion scale for BR Chemistry seems to be pretty lenient? 100 questions, and a 61 is a 9. Does that sound too easy, or is BR just more difficult, and thus, makes up for it with an easier scale? I'm getting 9s and 10s according to their scale, but I'm afraid it may be inflated.

    only scores that're worth tracking of are AAMC scores

    take all other scores with a grain of salt

    TBR scale is lenient, but their practice passages are also calculation heavy and difficult in comparison to AAMC. After i had finished practice passages with TBR, AAMC gchem questions were a breeze. But I was also scoring 11-13 in TBR practices depending on the content so that should be taken into account i guess.

    There's a thread that keeps a running list of how people are doing on the book passages and how they did on the MCAT. The scores seemed really close, so I trust the scale.
