The MCAT is less than three weeks away and I can feel the pressure building up. It’s a scary feeling really but taking practice exams has really helped. I’ve noticed a few things though. First – I always end each section with at least 10 minutes to spare, and the second is that I am getting all the easy ones wrong and the really hard ones right. Basically I need to slow down and read the questions a little more thoroughly. If I can remove those simple mistakes I should be able to get a much higher score. The VR sections is terrible and frankly I’ll be happy with a 10 there. I’ve taken about 5 practice MCAT exams on the AMCAS site and my scores range between 26 and 38. Huge range so I’m not quit sure what’s going on there. I am confident with physics, biology, and gen chem and need to work on organic chemistry and verbal some more. The toughest part so far has been keeping a strict study schedule. Having only a month to study for the MCAT is ridiculous enough and I really should be using every second I have to study. With that said I’ll end this post here and jump right back into it.
Oh in other news I started my job at my hospital and just bought new scrubs for that! Exciting.
