    How many of you saw on increase on the real MCAT from your best practice score?? I'm freakin' out here......only 6 days to go......

    Any advice for this short time period before the test? I feel like if I don't study something every second, I will miss a question on the test and we all know, a whole point is a matter of a question sometimes!!! HELP!!!

    Increases have been known to happen, but just keep in mind the AAMC practice exams tend to be pretty accurate score predictors (assuming comparable test and practice conditions).

    The desire to study every second is understandable, but don't over do it, especially in the week leading to the exam. At this point you should just be focusing on getting into test mode. Reviewing concise notes/flash cards, going to bed and waking up the times you expect to the night before and day of the exam respectively. Just chillax and be confident that you put in the work, and go into the exam calm, cool and looking forward to all the partying you should be doing right after.

    You need to start winding down now. Studying every minute up to the day you take the test won't make you learn much new material, but it WILL burn you out and psych you out. Regardless, you need to find a way to keep this test in perspective. If it helps, think of the worst case scenario: you take the test, bomb it, and retake it in a few months. It's not ideal, but the world won't end, either. Best of :luck: to you. :)
