What are the MCAT test dates in 2017?
The good news, is you have 5 more chances in 2017 than were offered in 2016 to sit for the new MCAT. Oh joy! And remember, you can always bend your score upwards by getting a better score so why not try all 20?
Back to reality…here is the list of dates for 2017, including the date (around 30 days later in most cases) when your score will be revealed to the world.

As you can see, the MCAT test dates are grouped around the most beneficial times for students….early enough in the semester (two in January!) so as not to crash your whole semester—only the first part—and early enough to repeat the test if needed; plenty of dates in April and May to satisfy earlybird applicants; a large grab bag of dates in June-August when school’s out; winding up with some straggling dates in early September to beat the final FINAL deadlines in October for most med schools.
All tests begin at 8 a.m.

Good luck, but mostly good prep! This is one of those moments in life you don’t want to walk in unprepared, or gripped by anxiety. There are so many ways to ensure that you walk in with an air of confidence, knowing you can handle whatever is thrown your way.
In addition to these MCAT test dates, you may want details on what’s on the new test that launched in 2015, and is markedly different than the previous MCAT. If so, see my post:
