Should I write MCAT after year 1 to assess myself?

Recommended Posts

I know most people recommend writing the MCAT after year 2 but is it a good idea to write it after the first year?

The main reason for this is to get a realistic estimate of what I've learned in year one and how well I can apply the content from year 1. I will probably bomb it but afaik Canadian med schools don't view multiple tests as negative so should I go through with the idea?

No, I don’t think you should.


Just buy one of the full length practice exams from AAMC if you want to assess yourself. Way cheaper and you’ll achieve the same goal. :) 

Although most people say that you should save those for actual practice because they’re so valuable. Alternatively you could do a 3rd party full length.. it’s up to you.
