What's the best way to explain a low MCAT or poor grade like a C?

Right now, I was thinking of explaining how I was trying to do too many things at once and ultimately my grade suffered and took the exam underprepared without pre-requistes completed. However, both situations improved my study habits teaching me to study using a variety of methods, doing a lot more practice problems, and ultimately I seeked out help getting a tutor to improve weak areas.

Is that good? What else do you guys recommend?

I know there's a very good chance it will be asked...
