Having to retake the MCAT exam

If you find yourself faced with the task of having to retake the MCAT, you’re not alone.

The MCAT is a difficult exam, and you could have done poorly for many different reasons.

Some students know the material, but have significant test anxiety. If you find yourself in this caterogy, you might want to discuss this with your school counselor and look into available resources.

If you are amongst those students who can’t get past the Verbal to save their lives, don’t fret too much. Unfortunately, the Verbal section is one of the hardest sections to improve upon. If you end up with two low Verbal scores, accept the possibility that the topic is not your strong point and apply anyways. Sure, you’ll likely not get into a top medical school, but trust me, in the end it really doesn’t matter that much — you will be a doctor regardless.

Finally, for those who have struggled with the sciences, the key is going as many questions as humanly possible and understanding how to approach various problems, and when to use each equation to solve a problem.
