MCAT 2022 test dates are just around the corner! Are you ready? In order to choose the right MCAT date for you, consider these key factors: 1) how long you plan to prepare (we suggest 3-5 months), 2) what study resources you will use, and 3) if your score will be released in time for med school applications. It’s also important to remember that test dates fill up fast, so you may have to be flexible about the day and location of your exam. 

Here’s a pro tip from our resident MCAT expert, Jess: 

“Give yourself enough time to prep with a diversity of resources. Have fun with Sketchy, especially if you’re still cramming content or reviewing those last weak spots.” 

Once you’ve selected your MCAT test date, you can start to build a study plan that suits your needs and timeline. Having the right resources and a solid plan will give you a competitive advantage over your classmates and help you stay on track all the way to test day. 

The new Sketchy x Blueprint bundle is the perfect comprehensive tool for MCAT prep. Packed with practice tests, a custom study planner, laser-focused analytics, and memorable lessons, it has everything you need to master the MCAT, all in one place.
