New section

This MCAT® Sample Question Guide contains 12 MCAT questions—three questions in each of the four sections of the MCAT exam—to provide examples of the types of questions you will see on test day.

New section

The questions in the natural, behavioral, and social sciences sections illustrate how you’ll apply your knowledge of the ten Foundational Concepts and use your Scientific Inquiry and Reasoning skills to solve problems. Some questions also rely on information presented in tables, charts, or graphs. The Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section tests how well you comprehend, analyze, and evaluate what you read; draw inferences from text; and apply arguments and ideas to new situations.

The passage for each example provides the context for the following questions. After each question, you’ll also find the correct answer along with an explanation that refers to the Foundational Concepts and skills tested.
