Preparing for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)

The MCAT is required for all students entering Medical school, and has four main sections that are all multiple-choice questions:

  1. Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
  2. Chemical and Physical Foundations of Living Systems
  3. Physchological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior
  4. Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills

The MCAT is taken by students in January, and March through September each year. By taking the test sooner, you will be able to apply earlier and start your program before fall admissions close. Therefore, enough time must be set aside for this exam, as well as the other steps required for application.
