About the MCAT2015 Exam

Coming April 17, 2015, the new MCAT exam is designed to help better prepare tomorrow’s doctors for the rapidly advancing and transforming health care system. According to the MCAT website, the changes to the MCAT exam in 2015 will preserve what works about the current exam, eliminate what isn’t working, and further enrich the MCAT exam by giving attention to the concepts tomorrow’s doctors will need.
  • Natural sciences sections of the MCAT2015 exam reflect recent changes in medical education.
  • Addition of the social and behavioral sciences section, Psychological, Social and Biological Foundations of Behavior, recognizes the importance of socio-cultural and behavioral determinants of health and health outcomes.
