That means each section is worth more points! The MCAT is a scaled test, and it's weighted based on the number of right answers. Fewer questions means that each question matters more. Click Here for the 2018 MCAT scoring guide.
Secret #2 - There's No "Wrong Answer Penalty"
Some tests, like the SAT, PSAT, and GMAT, penalize test-takers for wrong answers. The MCAT does not take points away for wrong answers, so don't leave a single question blank. Use the "Practice" feature on the AAMC website to see how the Review feature works on test day. <click here>
Secret #3 - The Scoring Has Not Changed
The old score per section was from 1 to 15. That's 14 points. The new score per section is from 118 to 132. That's still 14 points! Don't stress out over the "new" scoring. It's just like the old one!
