Preparing for the MCAT2015®

The MCAT should be scheduled only after all prerequsite courses are successfully completed and the applicant has had ample time (~6 mos) to study. If the resulting date would be later than May, then deferral to the next year is highly recommended. Applicants cannot sit for the exam any later than June and receive a committee letter that cycle.

The new MCAT exam is scheduled to be introduced in Spring, 2015

The MCAT2015 has four test sections:
1. Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems,
2. Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems,
3. Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior, and
4. Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills
