Free MCAT Diagnostic Test: Frequently Asked Questions

What is an MCAT diagnostic test?

An MCAT diagnostic test such as the Gold Standard’s free full-length test helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses. It helps you understand what skills or content you need to work on to improve your performance as you go about taking your practice tests until your test day.

How do I prepare for an MCAT diagnostic test?

First, understand the purpose of the diagnostic test. Next, review the content that you need to focus on by knowing the exam's syllabus and reviewing your textbooks, notes, or online resources. Furthermore, try some free MCAT sample questions to give you a sense of what to expect and identify the areas where you need more practice.

How to get AAMC practice tests for free?

The AAMC offers a free sample test and a free practice exam. Both are full-length exams, but the latter offers a scaled score and percentile rank. It features 230 questions from past exams, mirroring the appearance, functionality, scaled score, and percentile rank of an authentic exam. You can get the AAMC practice tests for free here: AAMC free practice test.

How to review my free MCAT practice test?

To review your free MCAT practice test, you will need to schedule a minimum of one full day of study wherein each passage and question is reassessed while taking very brief notes (“Gold Notes”). Your notes must be restricted to content and concepts that are either unfamiliar or that you missed for whatever reason.

Practice exams serve as tools for both training for the real exam and for evaluating your strengths and weaknesses within each section of the exam. Accordingly, your performance on practice exams should guide further content review when necessary.

For example, if you have been studying Biochemistry content extensively, then you should anticipate seeing some improvement in your Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems score. If not, then that may indicate you need to further your content review in that area or that you have not been following the AAMC’s syllabus and thus you have been studying irrelevant information.
