It is highly recommended that you begin with a diagnostic exam when you start preparing for the MCAT. In this webinar, Next Step’s National MCAT Director, Bryan Schnedeker, discusses what your diagnostic score means and how to develop your study plan around it. Not only does Bryan have more than 15 years experience teaching the MCAT, he was allowed to sit for the new 2015 MCAT when it was first released, so he understands what you’re going through and how to prepare.

Medical schools want the most competitive applicants possible, so your score on the MCAT is essential . Bryan discusses what score range schools are looking for and what score you should be aiming to achieve. He helps students determine how much time they should set aside for prep based on their diagnostic score.

He presents a few practice questions, tackling them as you should on test day. He also discusses passage strategies and shows you how to utilize them on a practice passage.

Bryan then hands the webinar over to Linda Abraham of Linda discusses why the MCAT is important, what is predicting, and what your score shows medical schools. The MCAT is just the beginning of the med school admissions process and your MCAT score can make a big difference in how you approach applications.
