Hi I just want to know the raw score necessary for an 800 in IIC, Writing, and Physics. Thanks. Also, exactly how is the writing weighted with the essay? Thanks.

 By Monoe (Monoe) on Thursday, June 03, 2004 - 04:34 pm: Edit

They multiply the essay score by 3.43, then add it to your raw score from the 60 questions. Usually, a 10 essay and 4 or 5 wrong is an 800. The points in the essay are 3.43 times heavier than the points in the MC, so getting a 12 is better than reducing those 4 or 5 wrong answers to 2 or 3.

In IIc, you can get 4 or 5 wrong.

Boy, am I not taking Physics.

Correct me if Im wrong but I heard you can get 8 wrong on the IIC and still get an 800 (??). The curve is supposedly big...

The curve is ridiculously modest but it isn't up to 8. If I may say so, I think IIC should have a harsher curve. There is no accomplishment of getting 800 if 10% of the people who took it got it.

For the Phys in 22 real sat iis the curve for 800 is 63+/75. So that means that you can get at most 10 wrong with no omits to get an 800. (That would 65 - 2.5 = 62.5 --> rounded up to 63)

I thought that IIC was something like 53 raw?

there's only 50 questions on the iic

 By Theleet (Theleet) on Thursday, June 03, 2004 - 07:48 pm: Edit

 By Jared (Jared) on Thursday, June 03, 2004 - 09:13 pm: Edit

The reason the curve on the IIc is nicer is because if it was harder everyone would take the Ic.

and u can omit 8 and get an 800 you can miss about 6.
