    Hi guys,

    So I'm having MCAT this May 22rd. I'm pretty ready and at the same time nervous about verbal. For PS and BS, I'm scoring 10-12 frequently so they are not issues. My issue is always about verbal. I'm ESL so I'm pretty bad at it. I exclusively study verbal comprehension for the past 2 months and I think I improved.

    However, I have a questions. Last weeks, I did verbal sections only from AAMC. They are 2nd time I did them within a month since I ran out of verbal practices. I scored from 9-11 for all of those verbal sections. However, I believed since I already did these sections before and did deep analysis for each, some memory could affect my score for the 2nd time practice. How much do you guys think that will impact my true score? I admit I feel much more comfortable reading passages right now but it doesn't not say much about my comprehension skill.

    if you're repeating the same verbal practice passages after a month then I would say you prob score higher since you remembered the correct answers, do TPR or EK 101 if you can...

    btw Im an ESL student like you too, and after a year of practicing Ive been able to raise my score form 3-4 to 5-6 :(

    verbal really sucks... specially for ESL students like us
