As a student premed you must take the MCAT or Medical College Admission Test before applying to medical school. The first step to prepare for this new survey is to understand exactly what is covered.

2015 MCAT now has 4 sections of the exam. While each has a focal or two scientists, much overlap of science from one section to the following:

Section 1: chemical and physical foundations of biological systems.


This is the new version of the chemistry and physics section. This section will test

    
30% General Chemistry
    
25% Biochemistry
    
Physics 25%
    
15% of organic chemistry
    
5% Biology

But not only are there different subjects, you will also come across a single pass on more of a science.

Psychology 65%
    
30% Sociology
    
5% Biology

As you can see, there is quite a wealth of information that is being tested in the new MCAT.
    full year of physics colleges - non-calc bases
    
full year of general chemistry
    
One or two semesters of organic chemistry
    
One or two semesters of Biochemistry
    
At least one full year of biology higher level. Additional advanced courses in biology are also recommended

So that covers the hardware, but that sections on the actual exam? Watch this video to learn about the distribution of sections of individual tests, including both the section and the section number of passages and questions.
