Which Month is the Best to take the MCAT?

There are four available MCAT test dates in January 2023:

  1. January 13, 2023
  2. January 14, 2023
  3. January 19, 2023
  4. January 27, 2023

January is the ideal option for students who wish to take the earliest available test date. Taking the test in January permits enough time to re-take if necessary and still make the early admissions deadlines. January test dates are also ideal for out of school students who have completed their prerequisites and are taking an interim year before matriculating into medical school or for students who attend schools that give a long break between fall and spring semesters.

January test takers should start preparing in September with the start of the fall semester.

There are six available MCAT test dates in March/April 2023:

  1. March 11, 2023

  4. April 15, 2023
  5. April 28, 2023
  6. April 29, 2023

March/April test dates are an excellent option for students who wish to have their scores back from the AAMC before the start of the application cycle. This gives applicants a distinct advantage in rolling admissions since their applications will be complete and ready for review by early June when applications open up.

Preparation for the March/April tests can begin as early as September with the start of fall classes, or as late as January with the start of spring classes.

Students who have already completed their finals can then fully focus on taking the MCAT without any other academic distractions. In addition, students' scores will be ready by late June, just after the start of the application cycle. May is also a good choice for students who wish to maintain the option to retest later in the summer before the close of the application cycle.

Preparation for the May tests can begin as early as October during the middle of fall classes, or as late as January with the start of spring classes.

Because many students wish to take the MCAT in June, students are advised to register well in advance. June is a very popular test date as it offers the unique convenience of allowing time for preparation over the summer as well as the ability to retest during the same application cycle.

Preparation for the June MCAT can begin as early as January with the start of spring classes, with lots of free time during the summer spent on practice.

There are two available MCAT test dates in July 2023:

  1. August 4, 2023

  3. August 25, 2023
  4. August 26, 2023
  5. August 31, 2023

The August exam dates are ideal for students who need longer preparation time for the MCAT. These testing options will also be very popular with retesting students who wish to take the test again before the first application deadlines in October.

Preparation for the August dates can begin as early as March for out of school students, or mid-May after finals.

about Dr. Donnelly!

Doctor MCAT's student increases MCAT score

5 star review

"Last year, I took the MCAT after studying on my own but my results were VERY disappointing. Physics and Gen Chem have never been my strong point so this year, I decided to get some professional tutoring help and contacted Dr Donnely. After just two months of working intensively with Stuart, I raised my Chem/Phys score by 7 POINTS! and my total MCAT score by 13 POINTS! That's how clear and thorough his instruction was. He really was exactly what you would want from a tutor because he really does care about how you do and even kept in contact with me after my exam to help me with school applications. He was an invaluable resource."

5 star review

"I highly recommend this service! I had private MCAT lessons with Dr. Donnelly during the Spring and took my MCAT in June. Stuart was very helpful, patient, and flexible, and so knowledgeable! He made the Bio and physical science passages seem so much easier. Just got my results back and I couldn't be happier! I went up by 11 points and ended up with a 515! I definitely would not have done as well on my exam without Stuart"
