If you are looking for Syracuse MCAT prep to assist you as you prepare to apply to a medical school of your choice, Varsity Tutors can help set you up with the right option to assist you reaching for your medical school aspirations. The MCAT is required by almost all medical schools in the United States so if you are planning to apply to a medical school such as SUNY Upstate Medical University or another prestigious medical program, it is highly likely that you will be required to turn in an MCAT score with your admissions portfolio. Doing well on this exam is a crucial step in your medical career so you will want to make sure to do everything you can to properly prepare for this difficult assessment. No matter whether you've just started preparing or have been reviewing for the MCAT for awhile and feel you need extra assistance, Varsity Tutors is here to support you in your MCAT journey. Syracuse MCAT prep opportunities can help you prepare more thoroughly than you might be able to do by yourself.

The MCAT is a six hour and 15-minute exam, not including your breaks. The assessment is taken on a computer and consists of 230 multiple-choice questions. You will receive five scores for your exam: one for each of the four distinct sections and then one combined total score. The MCAT assesses you on different concepts and material you will need in order to be successful in your medical school program. The concepts assessed on the MCAT are based on content you are expected to have learned in your introductory level physics, psychology, sociology, biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry classes.

What skills and content can Syracuse MCAT prep cover to assist me in preparing for the exam?

As previously stated, the MCAT consists of four separate sections. The sections include the Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems assessment, Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills assessment, Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Behavior assessment, and Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior assessment. All of the sections contain between 53 and 59 questions and have a maximum time limit of 95 minutes. All four sections contain passage-based sets of questions, which can contain 4 to 7 questions per passage. Three of the sections also contain 15 independent questions. Total seated time to take the MCAT is 7.5 hours. There are a lot of skills you will need to review in order to do well on the MCAT so let's take a look at the different sections and the content found in each.

The 59-question Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems assessment focuses specifically on different functions of the human body as well as the basic physical and chemical concepts of living systems. Your MCAT prep course or instructor can help you review human tissues, organs, and organ systems as well as their mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions.

The next section is the 53-question Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills assessment. This portion of the MCAT is your opportunity to demonstrate your reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and analytical skills. Your instructor can help you review how to determine the basic parts of the text and how to look at the different parts to increase your understanding of the purpose of the text.

There are 59 questions in the Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Behavior assessment. In this section, you will want to showcase your ability to explain how cells and organ systems act independently as well as how they work together to accomplish biological processes such as reproduction and growth.

For the Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior assessment, you will need to answer 59 questions about the field of behavioral health and demonstrate your ability to serve an increasingly diverse population of patients. Your MCAT review can help you review how cultural and social differences can influence psychological well-being.

The concepts listed above are not a comprehensive list of the skills you need to practice for the MCAT. An MCAT review course or instructor can help you to review all of these concepts as well as any other content you can expect to find on the exam.

When you sign up for a Syracuse MCAT prep class, you'll be able to attend your class sessions online using our interactive learning platform.

This is a great opportunity for social learners who enjoy a structured classroom environment.

For prospective medical students who prefer to learn at their own pace in a more informal setting, we can connect you with a private Syracuse MCAT tutor. This gives you the opportunity to focus specifically on the skills in which you need the most improvement and skip over the concept you have already mastered. This creates the opportunity for more effective and efficient study sessions. You also gain the opportunity to work with an instructor who can take the time to get to know your exact areas of strength and weakness as well as your preferred learning style.
