    Aoa Brother. Just a heads up, I have given both MCAT and SAT 2. This is what i think about both the tests. I gave my MCAT without proper prep and didnt do too well because of the negative marking, however for SAT 2 i prepared using SAT 2 prep books two weeks prior before the SAT 2 and when I gave the exam I ended up using more prior knowledge of my MCAT prep rather than the prep books for SAT i used. I thought I did terribly well however when the results came back I scored 2200 in SAT and was astonished but it shouldnt be a suprise because there is less deduction in marks for each incorrect answer in SAT as compared to MCAT. But for SAT i found myself constantly struggling with time because I was spending too much time on each mcq whereas according to calculations you should spend a max of 40 seconds on each question. SAT 2 is only beneficial for overseas seats and if you want to apply on foreign seats at private unis aswell( btw the fees for foreign seats at private unis are insanely high). A plus side for SAT is that you can sit it about 6 times each year so thats a good point. Hoped this helped out. Dont hesitate to ask me anything good luck

    Hey. I am applying on the reserved seats as well with SAT 2. I also took MCAT but scored 882 and my aggregate with it is 85.0909% however with SAT 2 it is in 90s. I am hoping to get in the 72 reserved seas for overseas pakistanis. Are you guys applying there for those seats as well?
