Increase Your MCAT Score


Master the skills you need to succeed on the MCAT by working directly with a top test-prep expert to learn powerful strategies for approaching different sections of the exam.
Students will work one-on-one with a leading MCAT strategy specialist who is the author of a major book on the exam. You will learn personalized, advanced strategies through up to 30 hours of phone or video coaching in weekly sessions over the course of a year. Coaching includes a specific study plan, review of assignments, and analysis of timing and testing strategies, but it does not include science instruction. Students are also eligible for the Cutts Graduate Reviews summer MCAT classroom-style Zoom program at no extra cost, on a space-available basis. Through the coaching sessions, students will master advanced timing strategies to maximize their score, along with powerful problem-solving strategies for the CARS (Critical Analysis and Reasoning) and science sections of the test.
