A Bright Future Begins Here
Our MCAT tutors often say that having a competitive MCAT score and also getting accepted into a prestigious medical school had a far greater impact upon their career opportunities than they ever could have imagined. With Elite MCAT Tutoring, students now have the invaluable opportunity to tutor and work with a MD mentor in order to achieve their medical school dreams.
What is the MCAT?
The Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) is a standardized exam that prospective medical students must take as part of the medical school admissions process.
The MCAT consists of 4 multiple choice sections covering the following content:
- Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
- Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems
- Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior
- Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills
How is the MCAT scored?
MCAT scoring ranges from 472 to 528 with 500 being the mean and median MCAT score. Each of the 4 sections of the MCAT is scored between 118 and 132.
The average MCAT score for students that have successfully been accepted and have registered to attend a medical school is between a 510 and a 511. The following ranges give an idea of possible MCAT scores:
- Highly Competitive (>90th Percentile): 514-528
- Competitive (>75th Percentile): 508-513
- Less Competitive (50th Percentile): 500-507
- Weak Scores: 499 & Below
Can I retake the MCAT?
While it is possible to retake the MCAT, it is important to remember that unlike the ACT/SAT, all your scores will be seen by medical schools.
One can retake the MCAT up to three times in one year and up to seven times in a lifetime. In terms of deciding if a retake it in order, it is a good idea to consider the following:
- Is your first score competitive for most of the schools you are applying to?
- How prepared were you for the MCAT when you first took it?
- How much more test prep are you prepared to partake in?
- What is your timeline for a retake?
