I took the MCAT today. Is there a way to check if your MCAT was scored or not ? I believe I have clicked the "YES" option. The strange thing is that I was not offered the volunteer portion of the exam later, and this usually applies to people who chose not to score the exam. I made my decision pretty late and waited for the pop-up screen to show up. I have thought long and hard about what I really did, but is there a way to confirm ? (besides wait for 30 days). Can I call AAMC to confirm ? If my test is indeed not scored, then I can register for the next MCAT date ASAP.(although all the dates for the old exam are packed)

The reason I waited that long is that..... while spending the last 5 seconds on the review page, I noticed that 2 questions from the life-science section were not checked as " completed".....and I started to think about the previous two sections. Apparently I am not a very accurate clicker....

Thanks for the help.

...............

Explicitly states on your MCAT Registration email that those testing after Sept 18th will NOT be given a trial section.................
The exam saves all your responses and ends at the moment the timer clicks to zero seconds. It automatically proceeds to the next screen.

Were you given a confirmation page from your testing center after the completion of the exam?

@texan2414 thanks for the input

yea I definitely missed that part of the announcement.....

I did "play around" with the options by selecting/deselcting them during the wait...this is a bit pathetic because I don't really remember what I left on the screen before the pop up message.

A confirmation page regarding voiding the exam ? No I don't think so (which means my test was not voided ??)
I do vaguely remember that there were some sort of confirmation page, but I don't think it was a confirmation about voiding...

After exiting the testing room, the proctor prints out a page with your info on it which is the "confirmation of completion" page.
Did you receive this or not? I believe for people who void, they don't get the confirmation but those that submit do get the print out at the end.

I do have the page. but on the front page it also says "If you chose to void your exam, no further action is required on your part; your exam will be discarded and no scores will be generated." --- this makes me think that everyone would get this paper to keep.....

I guess you can give a call to AAMC to inquire about your specific situation.

Just chiming in on this. My friend who took it 4 years ago said when she voided, she still got the confirmation printed. I don't think the proctors know if you voided or not, they just get to see if your test was completed. I don't know if things have changed within the 4 year time frame though. I would just call AAMC to make sure..maybe that will alleviate the stress you already feel.

i will call them tomorrow. Thanks for the input everyone !
Voiding concerns aside, how was your MCAT? There's a lot of people concerned about PS but I suspect its simply a product of neurotic hysteria. People have been preparing for months and were just taken aback with a hard section, even though in the end I bet most will score around their AAMC averages.

The PS section was harder than I thought, the verbal felt alright. However, I never used the "review" option for those two sections, so Idk if had skipped any problems or not. I noticed that I sometimes would click on the actual texts of a choice, not the circle.... :(
