2006, the MCAT is currently taken ONLY in electronic form and the length of the test has been reduced by 33% as has been the length of the testing time (one-half day). The original four testing categories (Verbal Reasoning, Physical Sciences, Biological Sciences, and the Writing Essay) have been retained, and the value of the scores for each category (1-15) remains the same. Test scores releasing time has also been decreased to about 30 days, as opposed to the 60 days it took under the pencil and paper format. Beginning in 2014-2015, the MCAT will be significantly revised (MR 5) with the essay-writing category being replaced by a numerical grade rather than the current letter grade. A new c ategory in “behavioral and social sciences” will be added. This change will require significant modifications in the pre-med undergraduate curriculum to properly prepare for the new category.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
