 Biological Sciences
Biology / Organic Chemistry
 Physical Sciences
Physics / Chemistry
 Verbal Reasoning
There are still biological and physical science
CARS = Verbal Reasoning (very similar).
Passages and questions continue to include
complexity and details beyond what is tested.
The MCAT continues to reward a deep
understanding of the content as opposed to
memorization the details. CRITICAL THINKING!

The test is now 50% longer (approx 7.5 hours long).
All sections are more relevant to medicine and are
integrated across the sciences.
Passages are based on articles taken from published
literature (ALL except certain physical science
Half of all questions test research skills, except in
the CARS section.
There is a new test section for psychology and
2015 :
Current MCAT: 1 – 15
points for each of the
three sections (total
max = 45).
 National average is ~28
 Medical student
average ~31.
MCAT 2015: Still 15
points per section.
Now scaled 118 – 132
(total min = 472, total
max = 528). Midpoint
is 125.
Score of 128 in each section would be equivalent to a 30, or 10 in each section,
on the current MCAT exam
NEW SCORE REPORT ~ will provide a great deal of information:
Percentile ranks will be reported for the total and section scores so you
can see how you compare to other test takers who took the new exam.
Confidence bands will be reported to show the accuracy of your total
and section scores. Similar to scores from the current exam, scores
from the new exam will not be perfectly precise. Confidence bands
show the ranges that are likely to include your scores on another MCAT
attempt at about the same time. The upper and lower bounds of the
confidence bands will mark the ranges in which your "true scores"
likely lie. Confidence bands help signal the inaccuracy of test scores
and discourage distinctions between applicants with similar scores.
Score profiles that show your strengths and weaknesses on the new
exam will also be provided. Even though the new section scores have
some imprecision, they are accurate enough to provide information
about applicants' strengths and weaknesses across the four sections.
= to match the NEW MCAT
= to best help students learn MCAT skills
New features:
 Three Keys
 Signposts
 MCAT Thinks
Passages were adapted to match the MCAT

Passages were integrated across disciplines.
