If you are preparing to take the MCAT, you may want to reach out to Varsity Tutors to connect with a Calgary MCAT tutor. The MCAT is used by many colleges and universities across the United States, Australia, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands as a part of their admissions process into medical school. The MCAT is designed to test your knowledge of social, behavioral, and natural sciences. It also measures your critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. While the MCAT isn't the only factor taken into account by medical school admissions boards, your score can play a vital role in determining which schools you can get into. The MCAT consists of four distinct sections: Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems (C/P), Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills (CARS), Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems (B/B) and Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior (P/S). Each section covers different content, and MCAT tutoring in Calgary can assist you with preparing for each of them in a variety of ways.

The C/P section focuses on general chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics, among others. One of the ways a Calgary MCAT tutor can help prepare for this section is by enabling you to choose which topics you prioritize. For example, if you have a firm grasp on chemistry formulas, but not on physics, you can spend most of your study sessions going over physics while devoting less time to chemistry.

CARS is geared towards verbal reasoning, reading comprehension, and analytical skills. CARS is a section that many science majors struggle with because most of the courses they've taken in college don't relate to English. It can be helpful to go through passages of varying difficulty with your MCAT tutor in Calgary to prepare yourself for this section. One of the benefits of studying this section is that performing well on it often requires being able to pull main ideas from passages. As most of the other sections also rely heavily on passages, possessing this skill may transfer to the other sections.

B/B contains questions related to chemistry, biology, and biochemistry. Some of the concepts that may come up are cells, energy, and reproduction, among others. An additional benefit of studying with a Calgary MCAT tutor is that they can adapt the way they teach to match your learning style. For example, if you are more of a visual learner, your instructor can provide notecards and diagrams that may be helpful in learning these concepts. However, if you're more of an auditory learner, they can have discussions with you.

The P/S section covers sociology and psychology. It may have questions about social issues, mental health, and parts of the brain, to name a few. MCAT tutoring in Calgary can also be beneficial because you have the freedom to work at your own pace. So if you are having a difficult time remembering Kohlberg's morality stages, you can spend as much time going over that as you need to before moving on to a different concept.

The MCAT is likely different than any exam you've taken previously. It covers complex scientific content and takes approximately 7 hours to complete. Preparing for the MCAT can take up to 6 months, which may seem daunting. But you don't have to prepare for this exam alone and the online nature of Calgary MCAT tutoring can allow you to meet with an instructor who fits in with your schedule. Whether you are a working professional or a student at the University of Alberta or the University of Calgary, you can contact Varsity Tutors to get started with MCAT tutoring in Calgary if you could use some assistance with your prep.
