 MCAT Scoring

The MCAT score report presents an independent score for Physical Sciences, Verbal Reasoning, and Biological Sciences. The raw scores for each of the sections are each curved on a scale of 1-15.  These scores are then combined for a total score of 3-45.

The Writing Sample essays are each graded by two different human graders. The scores for these two essays are combined for a score on an alphabetical scale from J-T.  The MCAT score report presents independent scores for each essay, as well as a composite score.

A percentile rank is also attached to a student's score, demonstrating how he/she peforms as compared with other examinees.
