Most def. you should unless you want to be on the rock?

Even then, some top carrib schools require a mid 20.

Keep in mind AAMC tend to have a more lenient curve than TPR, so not to be harsh but the AAMC is actually a good indication of how you will do.

You have the materials, just delay your exam by about 3 months, do the passages and online assignments, take the AAMC exams, see how your score improves...

Only thing ill say that I can almost guarantee is, with a 21, your score can probably only improve...

GOod luck, you can do it!

If you did do the reading, I'd have said give it another week or two of more intense studying. How far behind are you in the reading? I say see how it goes in two weeks.

I am in a similar situation. I am not taking any classes but has been studying on my own for 2 1/2 weeks. My real MCAT date is in 4 weeks but my AAMC diagnostic test is in the 20s. I am starting to get wuite depressed and wondering if I should move my test date,
Has anyone score higher in the actual test than their usual AAMC diagnostic test?? Should I count on the curve?
