    Purpose of the UHS MCAT Entry Test

    The UHS MCAT is much more than an examination, it is more of a selection criteria designed for evaluating student?s comprehension, evaluation, and application of information gathered from studying books. Therefore, it tests a student?s visual memory, memory for content, scientific vocabulary, scientific definitions, and understanding of printed material, premedical information, and logical reasoning. It is designed to see whether students have the potential to become doctors and face the challenges. Therefore, students should realize the importance of all these things besides memorizing text books all the time. To excel in the MCAT, you have to have the caliber. It is designed to evaluate abilities of the student about various aspects of studies as well as confidence. Following are few of the things evaluated in the medical entry test;

    1. General Knowledge

    2. Comprehension of FSC textbooks (i.e. student?s text comprehension, data
    analysis, ability to evaluate an argument or apply knowledge from the passage
    to other contexts)

    3. Concept clarity (text evaluation and application of information gathered from
    studying books)

    4. E.Q. level (staying calm and alert/attentive/ openminded)

    5. Insight (a clear perception for things)

    6. Responsiveness (under pressure)

    7. Judgment power (application of gained knowledge)

    8. Confidence (self-assurance or belief in one?s ability to succeed/excel)

    Source: I can't recall, but it was on some Entry test preparation blog.

    Hope this helps

    That post is really nice. I'm sure it's even true to an extent but honestly? The only thing you need is the ability to memorize and not panic during the exam. You're pretty much set after that.

    I agree with all that said but you need to focus most on the "visual memory" part. Some questions are copy-pasted from the textbooks. This year, there was hardly a question that required logical reasoning. Most was just memorization.

    Yes, MCAT is mostly about memorization. Everything from the textbooks must be on your finger tips.
