Should I Take a Study Break Before the MCAT?
Some people say you shouldn’t study for the MCAT two or three days leading up to the test in order to clear your mind and relax. I’m worried I’ll be off my rhythm if do. Any thoughts?
The key to your question are the words “some people.” You need to do what works for you and whatever makes you comfortable—you know yourself best. But hopefully by this time you are fully prepared to take the MCAT and you’re not scrambling around. Yes, your MCAT “studying” should be finished (as you should have the content down), but I know a lot of students that still work passages up until test day in order to keep fresh (and keep the anxiety subsided).
