REMEMBER YOU CAN ONLY TAKE THE MCAT UP-TO 7 TIMES
• Up to 3 times in one year
• Up to 4 times over a two-year period
You'll want to pick a test date that will ensure your med school will receive your scores by the deadline and allow you to put in the prep you need to retake the test. Consider when you take your next test VERY carefully.
HOW YOUR MULTIPLE MCAT SCORES ARE VIEWED BY YOUR MEDICAL SCHOOLS ADMISSIONS OFFICE
Keep in mind that all your scores will be seen by your medical school, though admissions committees will use MCAT scores in different ways. Check the score policy for every med school on your list, depending on the program, schools may:
• Consider your highest score;
• Take the average of all your scores;
• Give greater weight to your most recent score; or
• Consider your highest section score from each test.
• Check the score policy for every med school on your list.
HOW TO PLAN FOR YOUR NEXT MCAT TEST
It depends when you are applying to med school. You'll want to pick a test date that will ensure schools receive your scores by the deadline and allow you to put in the prep you need to retake the test. If you do decide to retest, you’ll need to seriously reassess your MCAT study routine.
• Did you get in enough practice tests and drills?
• Did you simulate real MCAT conditions when practicing?
REMEMBER YOUR MED SCHOOL IS EVALUATING YOUR APPLICATION PACKAGE
The reality is that your chances of acceptance depend on a lot more than just good MCAT scores. It’s a combination of the following pieces of your med school application:
• Your GPA;
• Your MCAT scores;
• Your undergraduate coursework;
• Your letters of recommendation;
• Your experience related to the medical field (such as volunteer work or research);
• Your extracurricular activities; and
• Your personal statement.
