    2250, 2260, 2300, 2300, 2300, 2400, 2340, 2400 --> 2310 real; then 2400, 2310 --> 2400 real.

    I usually got a range of about 2090-2250 and got 2140 on the real one. I find averaging the lowest and the highest scores on the range pretty accurate representative of your real score.

    How come your score didn't improve for a few tests and suddenly increased by 100 points??

    Beats me. I guess everything suddenly clicked together.

    Even though I got the same score three times in a row, the distribution was different each time. When I got the 2400 I finally managed to do well on all three sections at once.

    I found this to be quite true as well
