Granted my sample size is small, but in two Manhattan CAT tests, I only got 40% of 10, 600-700 level questions, but 70% of 12, 700+ questions right. How am I doing so much worse on the mid level questions when I get the harder ones right? It doesn't make sense to me.

Hey
You should not analyze the questions you got wrong according to their level of difficulty. It really does not make sense because questions cannot be properly differentiated just by level of difficulty.
You can review more comprehensively by checking what concepts is tested on the questions that you mostly got wrong.
For example, In RC are you getting the primary purpose question correctly? Is detail question getting you those crosses on the review screen?
Check them out.
We will be happy to help once you have sorted your weaknesses.
