Increase your score. Unlock your future.
The MCAT is one of the most important factors in medical school admissions decisions. Most medical schools applicants need a score of at least 500 to be accepted. An increase of even a few points can make the difference between acceptance and rejection; an even greater increase can help you stand out from the crowd of average applicants.
The Foley Prep team is here to give you personalized attention and focused instruction to help you earn those valuable extra points. They will work with you on reviewing and retaining the test material in a meaningful way. They will help you recognize and anticipe patterns in the test questions. And they will guide you towards mastering the strategies that you’ll need to conquer the MCAT.

What is the MCAT?
The MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) is a standardized test that is required for admissions to most allopathic and osteopathic medical schools in both the United States and Canada. The MCAT is a multiple-choice, computer-based exam that takes 7 hours and 30 minutes to complete with short breaks included.
When should I take the MCAT?
The MCAT is a content-based exam, so the best time to take it is after you have completed all of your pre-medical prerequisites. This means taking the test after you have completed Introductory Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, and Physics. While Psychology and Sociology are not typically required as a part of the pre-medical coursework, it is best to take the exam after you have finished these courses as well. For most students, this means taking the exam after their Junior or Senior years, but the true best time to take it is when you are fully confident with all of the content tested!
What is on the MCAT?
The MCAT is divided into four different content sections.
- Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
- This section tests your understanding of Biology and Biochemistry
- Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems
- This section tests your understanding of Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Algebra based Physics
- Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior
- This section tests your understanding of Psychology and Sociology
- Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills
- This section tests your ability to read and answer questions on a variety of passages
When and where is the MCAT administered?
The MCAT is offered many times throughout the year in the months of January, March, April, May, June, July, August, and September. There are multiple test dates in each of these months. The test is generally administered in one of the hundreds of Prometric testing centers located throughout the United States. As these tests are administered on specific dates, it is best to register well in advance for your test date. You can always change the date if you don’t feel prepared.
