MCAT For Beginners

Lost touch with your Sciences? Start from the basics with our Beginners Course

Having worked with hundreds of MCAT candidates every year, there’s simply no ‘one size fits all’ approach to prep for the MCAT. Prep Zone Academy’s MCAT Beginners Course aims to get you up to speed on your pre-requisite sciences based on your current performance level.

  • We will help determine your starting point & create a personalised study plan equipped with actionable steps for you throughout your preparation journey
  • Ideal for candidates who did not take the pre-requisite science courses in undergrad or need a refresher
  • You can expect a 6-month to 1-year customised plan with dedicated hours for Physics, Chemistry, and Biology
  • 3 assessments will be given at the end of your 6-month to 1-year Beginners Course to gauge your readiness to proceed with advanced MCAT preparation
