As you can see from the table keya_n linked, the mcs index on it's own doesn't say a lot.
Where do you see this msc value? What are you trying to figure out? Are you using controller or IAP?

The mcs rate changes all of the time, sometimes even packet to packet, and that is to be expected. That would happen because of a whole range of reasons. It is not looked at often because it is not the biggest determining factor of performance. A device can have a high mcs rate, but still perform horribly.
