well it won't make or break your application, but being able to follow directions in a coherent manner is pretty indicative of being able to succeed in medical school. I wouldn't spend too much time fretting about it, but make sure you know what they're looking for so you don't screw it up. It's the easiest section to do well on-no studying required, really, just a few practice sessions.

Depends where you are applying. In US...generally not as important. In Canada..important in some places. Western requires a minimum of Q, Queen's requires a minimum of P. Most other schools require a minimum of N.
