You will receive scaled scores in verbal reasoning, physical sciences, and biological sciences ranging from a low of 1 to a high of 15. The scale is used to compensate for slight differences between questions and to help rank the exam takers by percentile.
In 2011, the average cumulative scaled score of successful medical school applicants was 31.1, a jump of 0.7 points from just five years earlier!
It is worth keeping in mind, however, that there is a wide range of "average" acceptance scores amongst the different medical schools. Equally important is the wide range of scores between successful applicants of the same school, so don't despair if your MCAT score is a bit below the average of the school you are targeting.
An important point to note: While this exam is certainly important and worth taking very seriously, it is only one of several factors the medical schools' admissions committees will judge you by.
