Hi,

I'm scheduled for the MCAT September 9th, and I'm applying to DO schools this cycle. I'm really scared for the MCAT. I just took Next Step 3: 505.

Surprisingly enough, I took Kaplan full length 3 and got a 505.

Took the AAMC scored exam before that, and I got a 505 as well.

I'm worried because the hardest test I took by far was the Next Step Exam - my CARS was horrible, even though I was going really well on TPR workbook passages. C/P was difficult for me too.

What do I do? I really don't want to wait until next year, but I'm scared out of my mind right now. Please help!

cGPA of 3.71 and sGPA of 3.6

Yeah, I find the Q packs to be pretty easy. But CARS on next step = awful.
Don't base your performance on NS CARS 3. A lot of people score really low on that CARS section.

I would predict your performance with AAMC CARS material.

I struggled on Ns 4 cars as well as 3... Some of the answer choices were so contradictory to choosing the choice to other questions. Only good way to know my true cars skill is through the scored and Unscored I guess
