MCAT Guide > MCAT Registration
Medical school admission officers usually suggest that you take the test in the calendar year prior to the year in which you plan to enter medical school. They generally recommend a Spring testing date because receipt of the Spring scores allows for summer or early fall completion of your application. A Spring test date is also recommended because it permits examinees who feel that their scores do not accurately reflect their abilities to retest in the Summer of Fall. Later scores may then be submitted to medical schools in the same application year as the earlier scores.
