Graduate Exam: MCAT

MCAT Prep Program: “Clinically” Proven!

The MCAT exam is not a typical university exam! In many ways, it is one of the most challenging tests you will ever take, but also one of the most rewarding. Because it tests multiple fields of study and their applications, a high score will show that you are capable of handling the complex structure and subject matter of medical school.

Our tutors not only help you understand facts—they also attach those facts to a wider context and teach you how to apply them. This will prepare you to tackle questions with interrelated topics.

Furthermore, reading comprehension and critical thinking skills are vital for scoring well on all test sections. Complex questions will challenge your ability to integrate different sets of skills. Our tutors will help you read effectively, write clearly, avoid common logic pitfalls, and master the multiple-choice structure.
