New MCAT Score Vs Old MCAT Score

You may be wondering how the New MCAT scores correlate to the old MCAT scores to get an idea of what score is a Good Score and whats a Bad Score. I have made a table for you to reference so you can get an idea of what score you need to strive for.

*These are just estimates of how the old and new scores are correlated. All medical schools and AAMC are waiting for more data to really understand what scores predict success in medical school.

New Old
472 5
473 6
474-475 7
476 8
477-478 9
479 10
480 11
481-482 12
483 13
484-485 14
486 15
487 16
488-489 17
490 18
491-492 19
493 20
494 21
495-496 22
497 23
498-499 24
500 25
501 26
502-503 27
504 28
505-506 29
507 30
508 31
509-510 32
511 33
512-513 34
514 35
515 36
516-517 37
518 38
519-520 39
521 40
522 41
523-524 42
525 43
526-527 44
528 45

So as you can see 507 is the new 30. So this is a good score to strive for although I always say strive for something higher than the score you actually would be happy getting and chances are you will get the score you want or even better.

According to AAMC a score of 500 is a good score and most medical schools will be putting an emphasis on this score. But I would not believe this as a 500 is in the range of 50-53% percentile and medical schools have not put an emphasis on the average so I would say shooting for a score of 507+ and obviously the lower your GPA the Higher you want your MCAT to be. BUT REMEMBER you also want a balanced score so you want to do well in ALL the subjects and if you do excellent in one or two of the subjects that helps too.
