This is my first time posting!! .. Is August MCAT usually harder to score higher than April MCAT? Or is it about the same? My situation is that I was going to apply to medical school this year, and I am currently taking Kaplan courses for MCAT. However, lately I decided to give myself an extra year to boost up my EC and research experiences. Since I am going to apply next year, I can decide if I should take MCAT this April or this August. I would like to take the April test, but since I am a ESL student, my verbal score is pretty low. (My first diagnostic test is v7, p8, b9) I think that taking the test during August would give me time to strengthen the verbal areas, and I can finish my physics III before I take MCAT. Again, what concerns me is if August MCAT might be a lot tougher than April MCAT? Thanks.
