    I am in my 2nd year, psychology and neuroscience major in Canada! I have been studying for Mcat for 3 months so far using physics -ek, biology-ek, biochem-kaplan, psych-kaplan, organic chemistry and general chemistry- ek.

    I have taken 1st year biology 1 and 2, 2nd years cell bio and genetics! And like 5 psychology and neuroscience courses! Chemistry 1 and 2! I haven't taken organic chemistry or biochem! I have a GPA of 3.94 so far. And Canadian medical schools don't require organic chemistry or biochemistry! I am really comfortable with biology and biochem (even though i haven't taken the course, my biology courses covered all of the topics, kaplan talked about in their biochem book, nevertheless in less detail) I have not taken organic chemistry;but I watched an entire playlist of videos from 1st semester organic chemistry ()

    Now after seeing the post here, people are saying biochem is an absolute must! But I don't know if I will be able to do well if I know the kaplan biochem book fluently and if I will require any knowledge outside of that! My exam is registered for September 23rd! If necessary I can watch this playlist (), but I don't know if it will be helpful.

    Now, I did think about taking the exam next year; but my gpa is good and my eccs are good as well. I just need to get a decent mark on MCAT to get into medical school.

    Whats my standing? Am I setting up my self for ship wreak?, or will I be able to kill that sea beast waiting to wreak my ship? Any advice would be appreciated :)

    How have you been doing on biochem practice questions? Have you taken any practice exams? Taking FLs will gauge your readiness better than any of us can.
