The MCAT registration booklet gives some samples for the writing section. I remember last year, there were pages of samples given in the registration booklet, and the ones given on the actual exam were exactly the same as two of the samples from the list. This year, there are only 10 samples given. The booklet states that ?Topics selected for use in the April and August MCATs may be similar to those listed below.? Do you think they will be chosen from this short list? Should we bother going through each one?.they might just appear on April 20. I thought it would be a good idea to practice one together? Lets put our thoughts together and see what would make a well written essay and get us 6 pts. ?Scientists should seek to confirm theories or hypotheses rather than to refute them.? Explain what the above statement means. Describe a specific situation in which a scientist might seek to refute a theory or hypothesis rather than to confirm it. Discuss what you think determines when scientists should seek to confirm theories or hypotheses and when they should seek to refute them. Remember the three tasks we have to perform. I will post my thoughts a bit later. Right now, I have to get off the internet because I?m waiting for a very important call.
