# raw score conversion chart

## Recommended Posts

sorry, i couldn't find this anywhere on aamc website and i did a search of threads here already. does anyone know where i can get a conversion chart from raw score to the scaled score?

Does the conversion change from year to year or is it relatively static. So that I know if i score a certain raw score and convert it, that will likely be my mcat score as well come test day (taking into account test day jitters etc.).

I remember seeing it on the AAMC website in the practice test section back when I had a Kaplan subscription

As far as I remember, here's a pretty accurate representation, assuming it's an AVERAGE test--this is for biosci I suppose. Also assuming there's 52 questions...which I think I remember there is .

15 = 52

14 = 51-50

13 = 49-47

12 = 46-43

11 = 42-38

10 = 38-34

9 = 34-30

etc etc. It all depends on the test. None of that is written in stone.

My Kaplan Book says this: (roughly)

PS

15= 43-52

14= 40-42

13= 37-39

12= 35-36

11= 32-34

10= 29-31

9= 27-28

15= 40

14= 39

13= 38

12=37

11= 36

10= 35

9= 33-34

15= 52

14= 49-51

13= 46-48

12=43-45

11= 40-42

10= 38-39

9= 35-37

87.5% to get a 10 in verbal....

55.7% to get a 10 in physical

I know the test is scaled.... but there is a severe problem with one's section difficulty if there is that much variability in raw score

If you buy a test, or maybe not even.... they give you access to all scaled scores I found it logging in through my princeton online student section

The conversion tables vary frome test to test. It is a standardized test, meaning you aren't graded on percent correct but on what percentile you were in. A 15 could very well be 80% correct.

yeah i got a 39/52 on 3R which only nabs a 9. However, a 36/52 on 5R nabs a 10 (bio). seems to be quite a bit of variation between test curves if you ask me.

does anyone know if the grading curve (ie. scaled scores) for the aamc practice tests is based solely on the year it was written or is the curve (scaled score) inclusive of anyone who has ever written the practice test?
