If there is an experimental passage, what if you nailed that one, but you bombed another real passage. Then the points you got on the experimental don't get awarded, and you get taken off for the other passage?

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.
So I guess that's right, you'd get no points for the experimental passage.

I think if lots of people ace it, they just won't use it. It has nothing to do with your score.

Doesn't it suck that you waste so much time and effort at the expense of regular passages doing that exp passages and you get nothing in return .... well what can you do
