Both the computer-based MCAT and the paper-based MCAT are scored the exact same way, unlike other major standardized tests like the GMAT or GRE, which are computer-adaptive, meaning the test questions change based upon performance. With the MCAT, you’ll receive the exact same types of questions whether you use a mouse or a pencil.Each one of the three sections gives you a separate score:

  • Physical Sciences will give you between a 1 (low) and a 15 (high)
  • Verbal Reasoning will give you between a 1 (low) and a 15 (high)
  • Biological Sciences will give you between a 1 (low) and a 15 (high)

Your highest possible cumulative score on the multiple-choice sections is a 45, with the national average right around a 24. A good (competitive at most MD schools) score is around 30 and an excellent score is somewhere above a 34 to 36 (competitive at the top medical schools in the country). A 36 or higher would put you in the top 2% of the applicants in the United States.
