An estimated 71,000 around the world take the Medical College Admission Test, more commonly known as the MCAT, each year. Most medical colleges require applicants to take this test, and most schools look for a combined score on the verbal reasoning, physical sciences, and biological sections of at least 30. However, the average score, on a scale of 1 to 15, is only 8. How can you boost your scores and get into the medical school of your choice? Reading 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your MCAT and employing the practices within is one way to do so.
