First off, please do not pounce me for saying what I am about to say. I'm just a high school student.
Is the MCAT really THAT hard? I mean...I have an MCAT general chem prep app on my phone and I generally score between 80-90% on the test. I'm in AP Chemistry now and the class is very intense...so that might account for it, but I've taken practice test from that app and from another test prep website covering general chemistry topics and it's not that hard at all. Same with biological sciences. It covers all of the easy topics (I'm weird, I loved the biochemistry and molecular biology but not the macroscopical biology) that I covered in AP biology. I don't know. :/ Same with organic chemistry. Again, my AP chemistry class is intense. By June we will have covered half a semester of organic chemistry. And so far I enjoy it very much. My teacher loved organic chemistry in college (she originally took it her senior year in high school in Venezuela...yeah, says something about our high schools)...and she always has this big smile on her face when she's teaching the material. It's easy. To me it's a step down from general chemistry...I don't know why but it is to me.
Im also a really big science person. Anything with science is easy to me. Any other subject is hard. :( including math....which is why I hate AP Chem because we can't use calculators.
Also physics is easy. Probably the easiest of all to me, but I don't like it. I hate thinking.
My question is: Is the MCAT really that hard? Am I just lucky to find this information easy is this MCAT much harder?
