About the Course

Do students get any practice doing the full MCAT exam during the course?

The emphasis in the class is on face-to-face instruction. Students may try some practice quizzes during the class but not full-length practice exams. They will however be referred to the official, free, downloadable practice exams and encouraged to do these independently as a means to gauge their progress.

Is it acceptable for a student to miss the first class?

A student who misses the first class will have to catch up on the material covered through the workbook provided. If time allows, it would be preferable to register for a class where all sessions can be attended.

How much study time is recommended after completing the course?

It is recommended that the average student take three weeks to study before the exam and after the last class including trying multiple practice exams.

I’m not satisfied with my test score - can I repeat the course?

At the present time, there is no free course repeat policy. Discounts may be offered on a case-by-case basis.

About the MCAT

How often can I take the MCAT exam?

  • In 2015, the AAMC implemented testing limits on how many times you can take the MCAT exam. Voids and no-shows count toward your lifetime limits. Remember that you can only be registered for one seat at a time.
  • Single testing year:
  • The MCAT exam can be taken up to three times.
  • Two consecutive-year period:
  • The MCAT exam can be taken up to four times.
  • Lifetime:
  • The MCAT exam can be taken up to seven times in a lifetime.
  • https://students-residents.aamc.org/applying-medical-school/faq/mcat-faqs/

How long are MCAT scores valid?

When do candidates get their score?

  • Scores are released approximately 30-35 days after each test day. Please see the U.S. Testing Calendar, Scheduling Deadlines, and Score Release Dates for the release dates for each exam. Scores are released by 5 p.m. ET on release days.
  • AAMC scales and equates each exam after each test day.  This takes 30 to 35 days. The scaling and equating process is done to account for small differences in the difficulty of test questions when we convert the number of questions you answer correctly to the MCAT score scale. This time also allows students to submit any concerns they have about exam questions or testing conditions. The AAMC then reviews and investigates each concern. So, due to this careful analysis and review of feedback from each exam date, we aren’t able to provide a score immediately after you complete your exam.
