Kaplan time constraints realistic?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm finding that I could finish TBR FLs' PS section with like 15 mins to spare sometimes, but with Kaplan, I'm completely missing the last passage and free-standing questions at the end. I'm wondering if this is realistic of the MCAT or if this is just the Kaplan folks' way to make you follow their "do standalones first and triage on the way" methodology.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    From what I recall, I was finishing the Kaplan FLs with just enough time to look over my marked questions. I wouldn't worry too much about it, but check and see how you stand against an AAMC. I generally finished those with about 15 minutes left on the PS, 5 mins on VR, and 20 on BS. This varies with difficulty, obviously, but you should be aiming to finish the tests with time to spare. That way, on the real deal you won't be frantically trying to bubble in random answer choices.
