WS Marks to Letter Conversion

Is there a way to predict what raw scores are required for a particular letter mark for the Writing Sample? I have been practicing a lot, but I consistently keep getting 4's on my Writing Samples from my Kaplan teacher.

 

Would anyone know what letter an 8 would translate to (generally speaking since every WS can be curved differently)?

 

Thanks

The WS is the only section that is not necessarily curved.

i believe it goes something like this for aamc (kaplan - there scale is different)

 

1 - J

1.5 K

2 - L

2.5 - M

3 - N

3.5 - O

4 - P

4.5 - Q

5 - R

5.5 - S

6 - T

aamc grades the essays out of 6 and this is the ROUGH conversion

 

It's not rough, it's right. You write 2 essays so if your total is:

 

2: J

3: K

4: L

5: M

6: N

7: O

P: 8

Q: 9

R: 10

S: 11

T: 12
