    is there physics on the MCAT, and if so is it basic or second year?
    sorry i just realized that i posted this in the wrong section.

    Yes there is physics (algebra-based) and it is very basic.

    It is all algebra-based, pretty simple stuff.

    The med schools require calc, the physics on the MCAT should be calc based, but it is not.

    In what parallel universe are you living in? Only a few medical schools require calculus.

    No medical school requires calc-based Physics. Only a handful require calc at all.

    UCSD requires basic calculus, algebra based calculus.
