The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a computer-based standardized examination developed by the American Association of Medical Colleges for prospective medical students in the United States and Canada. The examination consists of four sections: physical sciences, verbal reasoning, biological sciences, and a trial section. The biological sciences portion is heavily derived from concepts in biology and organic chemistry, whereas the physical sciences portion is based on concepts in physics and chemistry. While the concepts are considered to be basic and taught in introductory college courses, the questions are worded in such a manner that the test taker needs to take step back and analyze the many harmonious relationships in science as they analytically process the reactions and correlations between the various fields in the physical sciences or biological sciences.
At RQM, our expert instructors walk our students through various approaches to each and every problem. Then, they illustrate different methods which help in actually solving the problem. Even after helping the student approach and answer the question at hand, the work is not over; the student receives a question set with similar problems to ensure that he or she can find the solutions independently. Our educators work through all of the content areas, paying special attention to the large number of nuances while respecting the breadth of knowledge that each test taker has to internalize in order to score well on the MCAT. Of course, all of our educators have scored in the 97th percentile or higher on the very demanding exam and are well equipped with the latest technology and educational resources to help our students reach their full potential.
