# SJT Mock score interpretation?

So on the official SJT website they don't seem to explain how to translate your raw (mock) SJT score into the "Equated raw SJT score". The only info I've been able to find is this:
Once all SJT answer sheets have been marked and test-equated, the scores are translated to a 0-50 scale. The distribution of the scale is set to reflect the distribution of Educational Performance Measure (EPM) scores. This ensures that when the SJT and EPM scores are combined, they each exert an equal weighting. The equation for translating the SJT scores to the EPM scale depends on the EPM scores in that year.
Using this scaling method, the equation for the FP 2018 results was as follows:
Scaled SJT Score = Equated Raw SJT Score x 0.141 – 85.1855

Does anyone know how to interpret the raw mock score? I got 1026 out of 1216 (84%)

Have a read and process that paragraph

It means the scores are relative to the cohort that sit it and the curve is transformed to match the distribution of the EPM distribution curve.

There is no absolute score translation as a result. If you have two parallel cohorts of candidates sitting the same test and scores not being amalgamated, if cohort A all perform exceedingly well such that their bottom 10% would be the top 10% of cohort B, cohort A's bottom 10% would still score worse than cohort B's top 10%

The SJT serves 2 purposes. The first is to flag students who may have fitness to practice issues (bottom outliers). The second is to then create a spread amongst the foundation cohort so some discrimination can take place to allocate places.

Hi! I just got the exact same percentage as you (except it worked out at 1016/1216) and was wondering if you ever found out how to equate the percentage to a 0-50 score? Thanks!

apparently it's just your percentage divided by 2
