A-Levels to MCAT - Introduction

  • A-Levels to MCAT - Introduction

This self-study guide is for those who will be attempting the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) exams after their A-levels.

It is important to note that the topics are not exactly the same as in A-levels. More details are now required.

First, be sure to have your MCAT syllabus with you – we will be considering the 2015 syllabus in this guide (in terms of page number), but it should be basically the same for other years.
The weightage of each subject is different, depending on the length of each syllabus. 
As you can see, Physics (44 questions), Chemistry (58 questions), English (30 questions) and Biology (88 questions).

Total = 220 questions in the MCAT (to be solved in 2 hours & 30 minutes)

For details on the subjects, follow the links below:

Physics Guide: part 1 | part 2
Chemistry Guide: part 1 | part 2
Biology Guide: part 1 | part 2
English Guide: complete

I hope the guides were helpful. As you can see, it is NOT hard or impossible. Just needs a little focus and time. So give it your all for 3 months and hopefully Insha Allah, make a bright medical career ahead of you.


  1. Can physics and chemistry guide be used for engineering entry tests?

    1. Sorry, but I do not know much about engineering entry test


If it's a past exam question, do not include links to the paper. Only the reference.
