Unique Course Features:
Comprehensive Approach ▶
Master the knowledge, reasoning skills, and strategies to maximize your scores.
If you’re looking for a better MCAT score, taking a prep course makes sense. But if you want the best score you’re capable of, then Prep101 is the smart choice.
Other companies spend all of their time reviewing the science covered on the MCAT. Or they focus only on strategy. The rest they leave up to you to figure out.
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 144 hours of classroom instruction – more than any other company. That includes 64 hours covering the basic science. And we devote 80 hours to 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.
Focus on CARS ▶
More classroom time devoted to the challenging CARS section to help ensure you succeed.
One thing that sets us apart from any other prep company is our intensive focus on the Critical Analysis and Reading (CARS) section. This section is the one that gives students the most trouble – and carries a lot of weight with most medical schools. That’s why we devote more classroom hours to CARS than our leading competitors combined.
Our expert prep instructors will train you how to map and analyze passages, dissect question stems, and attack answer choices with confidence over 32 hours of classroom time that includes 4 Lessons, 4 In-Class Exams, and 12 Workshops.
144 hours of classroom instruction ▶
No other prep company in Canada offers more hours of classroom instruction.
We spread our MCAT prep course over ten weeks to give you enough time to absorb everything. And there’s lots to learn. We offer 144 hours of classroom time with our expert instructors to keep you on-track and energized.
Watching online lectures all by yourself just doesn’t cut it. You miss out on the classroom give-and-take – and the boost to your self-discipline that comes from having to prepare for class beforehand. We believe students learn best in class, which is why we offer the most classroom hours.
Expert instructors hired at auditions ▶
Instructors make all the difference. We make sure that ours are the best in the business.
Our instructors don’t just know the MCAT better than anyone else. They know how to teach too. And to make sure, we ask each one to pass an audition in front of a student audience. We don’t let anyone teach our course unless they get top marks in the audition.
We know our instructors are the best because students just like you have told us so.
Flexible Schedule ▶
We make our course flexible enough to fit your schedule, not ours.
Prep101 offers weeknight and weekend classes. Take either one – or take them both. No need to tell us in advance – just show up! And if you can’t make either of them? No problem. We post them all online*, so you can catch up whenever it’s most convenient for you.
Your own customized MCAT Prep Course
Each class is offered twice**. Once on a weekday, and once on a weekend.
You can go to either, or both!
*Online Lectures do not include In-Class Examinations. **Workshops not included in Flexible Schedule but included in Online Lectures.
Unlimited Free Repeat Policy* ▶
Take our course as often as you need to get ready. No strings attached.
We want you to go into the MCAT fully prepared, with the confidence to do your absolute best. And if you think you could have done better and want to rewrite the MCAT, you can re-take our course any time and as often as you want. No questions asked. No restrictions.
No other company offers this. It’s another reason why students keep coming to us.
*New course materials and expired practice tests not included.
36 In-Class Exams ▶
Our 36 passage-based in-class exams reinforce everything you just learned.
Testing the topics right after a lesson helps to ensure your new-found knowledge really sticks. The instructor walks you through each practice exam after you write it to make sure you know how to analyze the passages, dissect the question stems, and work the answer choices.
No other company can offer this. Many years of experience have gone into designing these exams, and we know they work.
28 Workshops ▶
To get a competitive MCAT score, you need the qualities of a skilled physician: strategy, timing, analytical reasoning, and critical thinking.
Our instructors drill those into each student in every lesson. But you also need to know how to write the test. Prep101’s 28 two-hour workshops teach high-yield techniques such as time management, passage mapping, and multiple-choice elimination and prediction strategies.
We also devote 12 two-hour workshops to Critical Analysis and Reading Skills (CARS). It’s the one section that gives students the most trouble, yet most med schools give it the most weight when assessing applicant scores.
Prep101 workshops are now available online. If your schedule forces you to miss a workshop, you can make it up later. We’re doing everything we can to help you get the best possible score.
More Course Features:
Everything you need to succeed on the MCAT is here.
Other prep companies deliver most of their course online. Not us. There’s no substitute for spending time in a classroom with a living, breathing instructor. That’s why we offer 144 hours of classroom instruction.
The MCAT’s Critical Analysis and Reading (CARS) section always gives students the most trouble. That’s why Prep101 devotes far more classroom hours to CARS than anyone else. We spend more time on the other three test sections too!
We also spend way more classroom time on problem-solving. Our instructors are with you every step of the way through 36 in-class exams and 28 workshops to prepare you for the MCAT’s uniquely challenging passage-based format.
|Classroom Hours||Lessons (1-2 hours)||In-Class Exams (1 hour)||Workshops (2 hours)|
|Bio / Biochem||36||14||10||4|
|Psyc / Soc||20||8||8||4|
|Chem / OChem||36||8||7||4|
More in-class testing and passage-based practice.
We break down the MCAT into 42 lessons that our study guides covers in individual chapters. Before class, students read each chapter and work through 24 practice questions.
In class, the first half is devoted to a lecture, in which the instructor covers the chapter’s key concepts and works through drills and critical-thinking exercises in our Classroom Companion.
Following that is a 30-minute passage-based in-class exam covering only topics in the lesson which the instructor reviews with students after they’ve written it. After many years of delivering prep courses, we’ve learned that this format keeps you energized and focused as you master the problem-solving skills you need to efficiently answer passage-based questions.

42 Lessons ▶
Our 42 lessons deliver everything you need to excel on the MCAT.
It’s deliberately designed to be the most gruelling test you’ll ever write. The best way to prepare for it is to devote as much classroom time as possible, which is why we spend more time in class with students than any other company.
14 computerized Practice Tests ▶
We want to make sure you know what to expect going into the exam.
Our MCAT prep course includes twelve full-length computerized practice tests – including both official AAMC practice tests – that completely replicate the MCAT. These tests accustom you to the MCAT’s timing, computer interface, interdisciplinary approach, and topics. Once you’ve taken our MCAT prep course, you’ll have the confidence to take on the real thing.
