The last month of studying for the MDCAT is the crunch time that determines who gets accepted to their DREAM medical college and who has to try again next year.
There are several examples of students who barely made it through the year, only to succeed when they buckled down in the final month of studying.
Just by following these instructions, you may turn this last month into your GOLD MONTH
Take a stand for the last time.
- Ultimately, it always comes down to a battle of YOU versus YOU. So, the obstacles you experience as you prepare come from deep within yourself, rather than from the outside world.
- Choose a path, set a deadline for yourself, and stick to it.
- Don’t lose heart, and remind yourself frequently that you’ll never reach the goal you set for yourself back in college if you don’t give this last month your all.
- Your daily routine is just as crucial as your timetable.
- The rest of the days will establish a fixed timetable for you, and no schedule is ideal unless you follow it in a genuine spirit.
Harmonize with the schedule of your MDCAT Day
If you want to get the most out of this time of day, you’ll need to teach your brain to do so. Your regimen each day should prepare your body, mind, and soul to perform at their best on the day of the exam.
A Memory Card is NOT someone who
You don’t have to cram for 8 or 16 hours a day; instead, set daily goals and manage your time in accordance with these goals; after all, you are not a storage device.
Are you in need of further guidance while you alter your everyday routine?
Take command of the MDCAT Syllabus in the Final Days! The last 30 days are not the time to study the material chapter by chapter; doing so would only lead to confusion. Instead, this is the time to look at the entire course. Here are some suggestions for the final 30 days of syllabus management.
- Get your feet wet with Mock and assess where you are.
- Assess your areas of weakness in light of the results of the practice exam.
- In the previous quarter, you made the most blunders, therefore you should focus on that period.
- In that period, get ready for the section where you got stuck.

Quit avoiding your flaws and deal with them instead of trying to hide from them
Maintaining strengths while improving shortcomings is the key to MDCAT success. Check your knowledge of the MDCAT’s required four subjects and pinpoint your areas of weakness. Do what you can to turn your deficiencies into strengths. If students continue to delay studying some concepts (typically those they find challenging) until the very last minute, this will have serious consequences. In order to pinpoint the specific problems plaguing a certain chapter, it is best to begin the study of any given topic (or even individual chapters) with a diagnostic exam. Focus on improving your weaknesses before building on your strengths. Create a list of your weak subjects and test them periodically, recording your scores in front of this list so that you can evaluate your progress and adjust your study strategies as needed. You’ll feel more and more prepared to answer questions on this topic in the final test if you put in the time and effort now to hone your skills.

The likelihood of acceptance to your preferred medical school can be seen as a graph of your strengths and shortcomings if you use Valour Education’s courses. Put in extra effort every day to improve your weak spots and watch your score predictor rise to the level you want it to be at. You can keep a close eye on your predicted final test score using Valour Education’s score predictor, which allows you to focus on your weak areas and maintain a consistent study schedule.
Exercise for at least half an hour | A healthy body equals a healthy mind
You can’t expect the best outcomes from studying for 18 hours straight, and doing so will just lead to stress, overthinking, and a lack of desire, all of which will show up in your grades. Start each day with a 30-minute workout to increase blood flow to the brain, which stimulates neurons and promotes cell growth—most notably in the hippocampus—and so aids in memory retention and recall. As a result, a 30-minute workout might have a significant impact on your ability to focus and get things done.
Nutritional stability is just as crucial for success on the MDCAT as doing well in Biology
You can’t afford to get sick right before your exams, so make sure you’re getting enough to eat throughout the last month of your studying. You should also pay attention to your nutrition in order to avoid any of these circumstances shortly before your exam. You should try to limit your intake of fast food because eating it frequently can have negative effects on your academic performance (Research have found that people who take healthy and regular diet perform way better than those who take too much fast food in simple memory tests)
Spend a few minutes chatting with the person you like best
In these final days, you must do everything in your power to ensure that your most valuable asset (your brain) is healthy and alert on the day of the exam. If you want to get more done in less time, you shouldn’t shut yourself away from the world. Have a conversation with your pals summarizing the material you’ve covered; this will serve as a subconscious review of the material.
Good Studying Results From Quality Rest
Do not stay up all night studying, especially in the final days leading up to the instead, get plenty of rest between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. Your exam is in the morning, and although you may be more alert in the evenings and at night due to your biological cycle, you won’t be at your mental and physical peak when it counts the most: during the exam. For optimal performance, you should get at least 6 hours of sleep each night, and the best time to do it is after 10 p.m. Practice in that fashion.
You have everything you need!
You’ve spent the last two years of college and the duration of your MDCAT preparation intensively covering these topics. Avoid seeking out additional resources such as courses and drill manuals. You’ve put in your time.
Advice from a novice Equals certain failure
During this critical month, you shouldn’t listen to anyone who doesn’t have experience in the field.
Just one bad piece of guidance right now can completely alter the outcome. The Valour Education guidance counselling team is here to help you find your way.
