Does anyone know the curve for the Physics SAT II? In the PR book I have you can get 12 wrong (out of 75) and still get an 800... and I don't think thats too realistic

That's probably pretty close. It's very generous.

wow thanks, because if thats the case, well thats better than Math IIc and I'm better at physics than math... (btw I got an 800 on Math IIc...)

Its actually 12 omitted gives you an 800 (approximately, it changes from test to test).

My Kaplans book has 63/75 as lowest raw score for 800. Even down to 40/75 gets 700. The curve is really good and the test is really easy too. I took a practice 3 weeks ago (without knowing much on lenses, mirrors, circuits, magnetism, and atomic) and I still got a 750 - and now I know all of it except atomic. For anyone in a good honors/AP class, with only a little extra time doing practice tests and reviewing stuff you don't do in class, there is no reason an 800 is out of reach. Good luck - I'm taking it in June.

well ••••, kaplan's SAT I said that a 69 raw verbal was like 750-800... i can't trust them

PEOPLE THAT HAVE TAKEN THE EXAM: HOW RUSHED WERE YOU? I KNOW IT'S 75 QUESTIONS/60 MINUTES... BUT DID YOU FEEL YOU REALLY HAD TO WORK FAST?

I'm sad to say I took the test without taking the AP class. I was rushed in the last 10 questions (NEVER listen to the proctor, he said we would have more than enough time. This was my first proctored test so I believed him). I got a 700, so if you took the AP class, you have no excuse for not scoring higher!
