The CBT in August will be the exact same exam as the paper-based test. There will be no difference.

Same test, with choice of taking breaks and lunch. And less time on paperwork Those factors are the reason for a reduced time

I'm taking the August CBT and I think it will be an advantage for me in several ways but I am concerned with one thing. I make lots of notations and circle key words\elements in all the passages. Does the CBT have any way to highlight parts of the text as you read the passages? Does anyone have any feedback on this? Is there a search (Like CTRL F in Firefox) where you can go to a word - I would actually doubt that. Any insight on this would be appreciated!!

Yes, it has ways to highlight, annotate... If you want to do a tutorial go to e-mcat and do 3R the electronic version of it. That is how the CBT will be. Yes, there is a way to search as well.
