    Is it just me, or does anyone else in this forum realize that there aren't really any experimental passages. Everyone is writing in here as if there are, I could be wrong, but I don't think they exixt. What are your thoughts?

    Taken from MCAT FAQ

    How does the MCAT get test questions?

    A large pool of content experts writes the items. New items are included in each administration of the MCAT as "field test" questions. Field test questions are not scored, but they are assessed for their performance and, if they are approved, are used on a future MCAT.

    I have a feeling some are definitely experimental.

    theory 1, those with DK or DM had the drosphila eye color passage. Only one question related directly to the passage (which is xlinked?) and the other 3 questions could be answered without reading the passage. Thats fishy.

    another theory, DK and DM seem to have all but one passage thats identical...i think the variable passage may be the experimental one (although DK and DM) had the same drosphila eye.

    I had form DH. the drosphilia was there, the crabs were there, lots of physics, and a few ten question verbal passages. I would say that the BS was heavily weighted on molecular bio and genetics, UNLIKE ANY OF THE PRACTICS!!!
