Mastery exercise question review for Foundations Curriculum students
Faculty will provide a debrief or ‘teaching point’ for questions answered poorly by the class. Neither the question nor answers will be released. This is to maintain the integrity of the exam bank, and to ensure that students focus on the learning objective addressed by the question or the learning gap identified as opposed to the question itself.
Students who performed poorly on a mastery exercise and wish to review their mastery exercise, can contact the course director and make an appointment for a one-on-one discussion within two-weeks of the results being posted.
MCAT: How is the MCAT used in the application process?
The MCAT score is not included in an overall academic calculation, but is used as a threshold. Applying with marks that fall below the minimum required will jeopardize the success of your application. The MCAT must be written prior to the application deadline. Applications without MCAT scores will not be considered.
Only MCATs written within five years of the application deadline will be considered. You must release to the MCAT score to OMSAS each application cycle.
Only your most recent MCAT scores will be considered. Please note that this policy is subject to change.
