Next Step’s MCAT Course Students have access to private office hour sessions fives times per week. Students have the opportunity to clarify their understanding of various subjects and ask an instructor any questions they have about them, or the MCAT in general. We sometimes open up an Office Hour Session to the public. This session covered the best strategies and tactics when approaching science passage questions. These questions are prevalent on the MCAT, but are particularly difficult because they are often very dense and filled with information (necessary and otherwise). Spending too much time on one question can seriously affect your MCAT score. No one wants to run out of time on the MCAT or feel rushed.

Next Step instructor Phil Hawkins led students through several MCAT-style science passages during this session. Students learned how to breakdown the content and find answers to the question sets. Phil scored in the 99th percentile on his own MCAT and even answered students’ questions during the live Q&A.

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 Extra Help session is just 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.
