If you mean by diagnostic, it varies but most i've seen range in the 150s I think that's pretty typical for high scorers
Don't put too much stock in the diagnostic though and just work hard and prep accordingly

So much of your diagnostic to real score difference is going to depend on your previous familiarity with logic (formal and less formal) and how you perform in stressful situations.

I got a 175 on diagnostic but had taken a couple formal logic courses (because they were easy, have a fairly logical mind), did some programming, and in general had a lot of little logical things like I used to play Sudoku religiously. Also spend a lot of time reading academic texts which prepared me for RC.
I only scored 173 on test day though, and there are lots of people who had diagnostics under 160 who walked away with a higher score.

TL;DR it does not really matter what your diagnostic is, aim high.
