Overview of the MCAT

What is the MCAT like? The MCAT is a 7.5 hour multiple choice exam that tests students on the content covered in basic science pre-med classes. It is required for entrance into most medical schools, and is one of the most important factors examined by medical school admissions committees along with GPA. The exam contains four sections of 50-60 questions each, including a section covering Chemistry/Physics, Critical Reading, Biology/Biochemistry, and Psychology/Sociology.

How should I study for the MCAT? Because the MCAT covers so much content, it requires more diligence and careful planning than any other exam you have ever taken. One of the most important things you can do is to start your preparation early. This will give you ample time to thoroughly cover all of the content. Some students start tutoring with us years before their test date. Top scorers also make sure to practice as much as they can before the real thing. Going over practice problems will help you develop the skills you need to work smart and efficiently on test day. Last of all, top scorers tend to follow the examples of those who have already conquered this challenging exam.




How can an MCAT study program help me succeed? Some top scorers report that using an MCAT study program helped them stay on track and learn more than they would have if they had studied on their own. Sadly, most test prep companies charge outrageous prices, don’t prepare students using the best materials, and require students to follow a strict study schedule.
