[AsK]emUnited Question 6: MCAT and FSc prep

Premed/FSc Guidance and Counselling Initiative.

Question 6: A-level books for MCAT?

a. Is there a need to go through Alevel books for MCAT prep?
b. Should I prepare for MCAT along with my 2nd year?


a. Nope. For some topics in Physics such as CT scan, ultrasound, MRI, you can study KIPS notes (which, btw, are a copy of an A level text) or watch a good enough animation or video. There is no need for you to buy or study A level books.

However, just to strengthen your concepts, read the topics you do not understand in your biology textbook from Campbell's Biology. It is the primary source of your Biology FSc Book.

There is no need to get A level books for other subjects. In the MCAT course, there are some topics which you might not find in your FSc texts. You can do those topics from notes provided by academy, or search them up on the internet.

There isn't any need to do this. Focus more on building concepts during 2nd year instead of overburdening yourself. If you can manage it, start doing the english vocabulary by making a list of related words, and start using them in your essays and stuff. That way, you won't be troubled with vocab. For more on how to study MCAT vocab using a novel way, read this.

Few Words about [AsK]emUnited Premed Counselling Initiative..

KemUnited started a premed section not very long ago. We got an overwhelming response to it, within a short period of time. The KemUnited team felt that there was widespread ignorance about preparation techniques. Most of the students relied on hearsay from their nearest friends and seniors, which may have guided or misguided them depending on the caliber of that person.
This is our first step to give one-on-one advice.
