A Note on Early MCAT Registration — and What You Need to Do to Register
With so many MCAT test dates coming up, you may be tempted to put MCAT registration on the back burner, but don’t fall into that trap. Think about it like this: lots of longer-term decisions—like when to schedule your test prep—depend on your MCAT test date. So taking just a little bit of time now to determine your test date and register for the MCAT can put you ahead of the game and help you develop a strong study plan.
In addition to exact instructions on how to register for the MCAT, the AAMC also offers some tips to help you make sure MCAT registration goes off without a hitch:
- Know when registration opens for your desired test dates
- Determine your top three testing locations in advance
- Have your government-issued ID available at the time of MCAT registration, make sure it is valid, and use the same one as your ID on MCAT Test Day.
