    If you're anxious about the MCAT and want to learn more about how to handle the stress associated with such an exam, I encourage you to read my blog on how to deal with MCAT stress.

    This exam is a major obstacle for many premedical students who end up stressing a lot about it. Feel free to discuss your thoughts, concerns, and what may have helped you overcome the stress of the MCAT.

    I think my main concern with this exam is that I'll score really well on one passage, yet awful on the next. I can't seem to find a reason why one score happened compared to the other.

    @Hospitalized try taking the time necessary to review each passage. This is more important the the number of passages you do (quality over quantity). When you understand why you got a question right and why you got a question wrong, you will be more likely to not make the same mistakes and to reinforce the correct way of thinking.
