Vancouver MCAT prep.

(University of British Columbia)

Set your scores apart.

Tackle every MCAT topic and passage with confidence using our proven strategies and techniques.

Comprehensive
approach

Master the knowledge, skills, and strategies to maximize your scores.

Comprehensive approach

Prep101 takes a more comprehensive approach. We teach you all the science on the MCAT. We also help you master the MCAT’s challenging passage-based format. And we hone your critical thinking skills. When you nail these three areas, you’ll get that higher score.

We offer 130 hours of classroom instruction – more than any other company. That includes 60 hours covering the basic science. And we devote 84 hours to scientific reasoning and critical thinking skills and the strategies you’ll need for the MCAT’s passage-based questions.

All of this adds up to a prep course that offers more of everything you need to get a top score.

Most
classroom time

130 hours over 10 weeks to give you ample time to digest everything.

Most classroom time

One thing that really sets us apart from other prep companies is our 130 hours of classroom instruction.

Coming into class every week keeps you on schedule, and self-discipline comes more readily when you know you’ve got readings to do before you come to class. There’s also that camaraderie that comes from working on a shared problem with your fellow students. Simply put, we believe students learn best in the classroom, which is why we offer more classroom hours than anyone else.

Flexible
schedule

Classes offered twice weekly to give you more options.

Flexible schedule

We’re the only MCAT prep company that lets students customize their weekly schedule. We offer each of our classes on a weeknight and again on the weekend. Students can choose to attend either or both classes, depending on their weekly schedule. We sometimes have different instructors for the weeknight and weekend class too, which will give you two different perspectives on the material if you do attend both. No need to tell us in advance – simply show up to the class that suits you.

Once they’ve taken our course, students always tell us just how much this helped them manage busy summer schedules full of many different activities. No other company offers this.

Team of
expert instructors

Our instructors are specialists with lots of teaching experience.

Expert instructors

Unlike one of our competitors, we don’t use just one instructor to teach an entire MCAT course – we use a whole team of them. We only permit specialists – established experts in their field – to teach our course.

We firmly believe that a generalist cannot do justice to the course, and it’s not fair to students. That’s why we have each instructor focus on his or her area of expertise.

We're different by design.
