MCAT test

The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) tests your ability to understand basic concepts in medicine. Each medical school has a certain cut off MCAT score. You will need to have basic scientific knowledge in biology and organic chemistry, physics and be skilled at reading comprehension and writing. An MCAT preparation class, independent study, or additional classes in areas in which you perform less than expected can  help you reach the targeted score.

US schools put a great deal of emphasis on this test and some offer preferred interview invitation to those with outstanding scores. The test is offered several times each year and you should time your study time with MCAT preparation for the best result. We will help you decide when is best to take the test and refer you to prep courses that will improve your performance.
