Clara Gillan, one of our course instructors, took students through this public office hours webinar. Students enrolled in our online MCAT course have access to several of these office hour sessions per week; this is a chance for those who are not currently enrolled in our course to experience what these sessions look like. This particular session focused on mathematics and data interpretation on the MCAT.

Clara went over what kind of math you may see on the MCAT and in what sections. She led students through several practice questions, including practice passages with data and figures, inviting students to participate and providing thorough explanations for each answer. She also introduced several “tips and tricks” for handling certain MCAT math questions, which make it easier for students to work through them both in practice and on test day.

Unlike the lesson videos, our public office hour sessions are not just a lecture. The office hour sessions are intended to be interactive, allowing students to participate and ask questions just as they would in a traditional classroom setting. They will be conducted by one of our senior MCAT experts and will focus on specific MCAT content, but students will have the ability to ask and answer questions on mic. If you have a question, you can simply type your question into the chat box or click the “raise your hand” button and ask.

Our goal at Next Step is to make sure that you have the resources needed to prepare for the MCAT and your future career. This public office hour session is a sampling of what our course students have access to on a regular basis. If you’re interested in our online MCAT course, click here. We also have several practice test bundles, including a free practice bundle, as well as one-on-one MCAT tutoring services. If you utilize our tutoring services or enroll in our course, you will receive customized plans that work at your pace and focus on the areas where you need to improve the most. What works for some may not work for all, so we are doing away with the cookie cutter approach and making sure that your study plan works for you.
