The AAMC announced changes to the MCAT in 2018. As of the January test dates, we are already seeing these changes on the official MCAT exam. But, what exactly changed from the old interface to the new interface? And, how is this going to affect your MCAT-taking students?

Clara Gillan, one of Next Step’s Premium MCAT tutors and Course instructors, led this short webinar discussing the changes and the effect they will have on MCAT test-takers. With an entirely new look and feel, many MCAT students may feel under-prepared or worried that the changes will negatively impact their scores. There should be no surprises on Test Day to throw your students off. Knowing what’s coming and practicing with representative materials is important.

Watch a recording of this webinar below to gain a better understanding of the new interface and how it will impact your students when they sit for the exam.

Next Step’s goal is to make sure that pre-meds have the resources to help them prepare for and succeed on Test Day. To ensure that students are getting the most representative practice possible, Next Step has updated our testing platform to match the 2018 changes. We offer a free MCAT practice bundle; students can test out the new interface for free. If they are looking for more practice, we offer several practice test bundles that display the new interface as well.

We also have resources available specifically for pre-health advisors. In addition to our free Advisor Office Hours webinars, we also host a Prehealth Advisor Blog that contains articles and information beneficial to advisors and their students. Interested in working with Next Step? We are happy to partner with advisors to help bring their students the best possible prep at the best possible price. You can join our discount program, receive free MCAT materials, and more.  If you’re interested in learning more, please reach out to Rachel Mead.
