MCAT Prep Is A Marathon. Not a Sprint.  

Review alone will only get you to the low 500s. Anything above that is mastering strategy. 

it’s tiring and can get depressing at times. You’re mentally exhausted, completely burnt out. But you’re not alone. 

Our team of experts have been there, made many mistakes, did it wrong. However, it is these very experiences that allow us to save 1,200,000+ Hours of work for our students, boost MCAT scores, and instilled the belief that anyone can achieve any goal. 

“I want to do well on the MCAT. I feel like I've done everything right. I’ve been pulling all-nighters at least five days a week for the past three months. I’ve taken what seems like a million prep courses, study guides, flashcards. I’ve even gone through at least 9 MCAT study books. 

I even created cheat sheets, used my eidetic memory to look at them for a couple of seconds. Spent time teaching the concepts to some other students preparing for the MCAT to refine my verbal reasoning. 

These are the same strategies I’ve used all my life and worked like a charm in the past. 

 Not this time… I only managed a low 500’s on the MCAT and lie to my friend’s about my real score out of pure embarrassment. 

I honestly don’t understand what’s going on. I’m not incompetent or plain stupid. If I had to guess, I’d say that I’m around the 90-99 percentile based on my class based off of my undergrad GPA.

The worst part about this whole situation is the amount of pressure I’m feeling from friends and family as well as the internal pressure I put on myself... I have this drive to amount to something great in the eyes of my parents who are immigrants.

What else can I do to improve a low MCAT score?”

-Aspiring, but mentally drained pre-med student.

A Letter From CEO & Co-Founder: Amareen Dhaliwal

I get these types of messages in my inbox on a regular basis from people of all walks of life preparing for their MCAT. There’s no denying that the path to medical school is full of hardship, sleepless nights, self-doubt you name it. 

So why did I attach that letter?

To illustrate what most students preparing for the MCAT are experiencing and to let you know that you’re not alone.

You are under all under immense pressure devoting serious attention to making your med school application perfect. Staying organized and on top of your application requirements and deadlines is no walk in the park. 

We believe that your ability to achieve any goal in life is determined by the amount of belief you have, and the drive to acquire the necessary resources to achieve any goal.  

Past failures, lack of skillset, or performance on the MCAT are NOT indicative of your performance as an student, professional, or individual.  

The determination it takes to do well is inside each and everyone. The only question left is “how much do you want it?

Unlike most Education Programs, Axilogy arms our MCAT students with the resources and support to approach difficult tasks as challenges to master rather than threats to be avoided - instilling the proper belief in every student that they have the capacity to accomplish anything in life. 

Keep reading to discover if you qualify for a fully customized, step-by-step plan outlining the fastest path to a successful MCAT exam, and the right help and feedback on the day to day challenges.

Why Intelligent, Competent, Hard-working students with solid SAT and college GPAs FAIL…

Many students entering college with dreams of becoming a doctor find themselves changing their mind somewhere along the way. Of course, some have simply found a different calling, but the fact remains that many students change their career path because of intimidation.

Do any of these questions apply to you?

  • Does your upcoming MCAT Prep make you feel like a failure? 
  • Do you suffer from feelings of isolation, like the world is closing in on you - and so overwhelmed and depressed that you see your dreams of becoming a doctor slip away?
  • Does it frustrate you that your current MCAT Prep Course doesn’t strike an equal balance between content and practice problems?
  • Do you struggle with finding a balance between content and practice problems.
  • Do you ever imagine what your life would be like if you are able to achieve your greatest potential, organize and execute the courses of action required for a successful performance on your MCAT?

How You Can Pinpoint the Most Beneficial Next Step to Apply Immediately on YOUR Journey to Med School

Remember the scene in the first Matrix where Neo (Keanu Reeves) learns martial arts in just 12 seconds. He is hooked up to the computer, and the ‘martial arts’ are uploaded into his brain.
In one of the more memorable scenes in the movie, Neo comes out of the upload session, opens his eyes and says ... “I know Kung-Fu!”

That’s what we want for YOU!
Now obviously, we can’t transfer our everything we know directly into your brain. But our team of coaches, tutors, and consultants can put our collective experience at your disposal. Combined with what you know about MCAT preparation—we can develop a plan to dramatically reduce the time it takes to study and retain information...and overcome any tactical challenge you may be facing FAST.
More importantly, we'll put any overwhelming feelings to the grave and lay everything out for you STEP BY STEP.

You see, between our coaches, consultants and tutors... 

  • We’ve built a successful test prep company…
  • We’ve helped 100s of who’ve gone on to become medical students...
  • We’ve seen thousands of mistakes and know the consequences... 
  • And we’ve witnessed hundreds of successful students improve not only MCAT scores, but their entire experience…

I can almost guarantee that whatever challenges you may be facing, is something that one of us have also experienced and knows exactly what to do (and what not to do!)
With our combined experience at your disposal, we can spot the weaknesses in your current study strategies... And plot the best path to victory…
A path more likely to be easier and faster than the one you’re on right now..

Which preserves your morale and momentum!

Then, when you go into battle with the MCAT you’ll have OUR skills on a ‘muscle memory’ even if something happens which the initial plan didn’t anticipate, you can react immediately with lethal effect.

Before we dive into the details, I have a quick question for you...

Which of These Scenarios Have You Experienced?

“I wasted an entire month just trying to learn how to study for the MCAT. It was very inefficient starting out. Now when I look back I wish I had budgeted this in when I first started my MCAT prep. Because I only planned three months of prep and burned one month, I was already 60 days out from the exam before gaining any real traction.”

“I’m midway through my current MCAT Winter Bootcamp which runs for four weeks, and I find myself feeling neutral about the course. Despite there being a lot of online resources, I just don’t feel like I am retaining much of the information. I’ve tried keeping up with the mini-homework assignments, but I certainly haven’t been able to complete everything by the suggested due dates.”  

“I expected a review course to teach me everything I need for the MCAT. But I can’t review what I don’t already know.”

“I wish I had a support network for the MCAT. It would’ve been nice to have a few study partners to have review sessions with.“

“Current MCAT is fairly new. It was released in 2015.So many MCAT Prep companies still haven’t adequately prepared for it, and the biggest problem is that their practice material is not similar enough to the new MCAT.”

“AAMC releases more material suited to the new format. Unfortunately, these test prep companies have failed to revise their books and practice questions to be more applicable to the new MCAT style and content.”

And how do you solve these problems?

The Single Most Important (and DESTRUCTIVE) Thing Either Helping YOU or Holding You Back   

Our mindsets determine the way we perceive the world as well as the way we behave and who we are as people. It’s very easy to stay stuck in fixed mindsets - limiting beliefs about our abilities and skills that prevent us to learn new things. 

We can intentionally cultivate a growth mindset that allows to stretch our mind and amplify the realm of possibilities, and who we are. 

Amplifying our mindsets is one, if not the most important secrets to success. 

The MCAT does a wonderful of testing the content of introductory science courses. Combine that with the critical thinking skills, and you'll make an excellent physician.

To be successful, as with any exam, the time for review and preparation for the exam has to be there. The last couple of months leading to the exam was a blur. All I remember was spending twenty hours days studying for weeks (which I don't recommend). So believe me when I say that I completely understand where you're coming from.

But more than that, I attribute my success on the exam to the way I studied and developed my metacognition in the years leading up to the exam. It was during my first few years in college that I developed the way of thinking that ultimately led to my success.

One of the biggest misconceptions about science classes is the perceived necessity to memorize information to regurgitate for the exams. Whereas some amount of memory recall is essential to learning, a focus on rote memorization can detract from the process.

What we've repeatedly observed from our tutors is that, after studying, students can often answer questions from a range of topic. However, when follow-up questions were presented, most students struggle to respond. 


We believe this is the key to learning and being able to switch the way of thinking from short-term memorization to long-term understanding. If more time is devoted to understanding the reasoning behind the scientific principles, then facts will no longer be required to be memorized.

Instead, when asked a question, you can reason your way to the answer. This is the key to developing the critical thinking skills necessary for the MCAT. This test will give you information on topics you’ve never seen before, and if you haven’t learned these reasoning skills, no memorized list is going to help you.

There is no such thing as stupid mistakes. Every single thing you do wrong happened because of a fMed in your thinking, probably one that has persisted throughout your entire studying experience.

Your performance and motivation are in part determined by how effective you believe they can be. We instill fundamental principles of Self-Efficacy which refers to beliefs in one's capabilities to organize and execute situations. Self-efficacy influences people's ability to learn, their motivation and their performance, as people will often attempt to tasks for which they believe they will be successful. 

Here’s How You Can Cut Your “Time to Success” In Half and Avoid A Great Deal of the Financial and Mental Anguish…

Let's go back to in history. 1896 to be exact... 

In case you were unaware, the Anglo-Zanzibar war was the shortest war in history lasting 45 minutes…

During this time, the British were experiencing conflict and were rather unhappy with the regime change in Zanzibar. 

What ensued afterward was a brilliant plan of attack from the Brits who quietly position warships in front of the royal palace and proceeded to blast the place to bits while simultaneously landing royal marines on the ground to assist the attack.
And after just 45 minutes of this brutal, surprise attack, the uncooperative ruler of Zanzibar fled the palace and a more ‘cooperative’ ruler was installed in his place.

You see...

The real key to winning is having both a superior plan of attack AND overwhelming force...

Our Program

Cost of MCAT Prep - The MCAT should already be part of your budget. It weighs more than your GPA (which accumulated cost through extra classes, programs, tutors, books, etc). More so, applying to medical school can cost up to $3,000, with flights and hotels during interviews totaling up to $7,000. If you are not prepared for the MCAT, the money you spent so far on getting a premed-worthy GPA, along with the years you have spent focused on medical school, will be a waste. You are always in better hands being guided by an MCAT tutor, someone who can guide you and prevent you from making big mistakes on test day. 

Phone Call As Soon As Possible- We will call you after you fill out your application to begin developing the best "first approach" and week 1 plan. This plan will be tailored almost daily to adjust to your needs and your coach will continue to update as needed.

Academic History Assessment- Our students come from various backgrounds and we want to know every detail. During your initial consultation, your coach will have reviewed your academic record and calculated what subjects will require more focus in order to make your consultation as efficient as possible using your specified time constraints, grades, and colleges.

General Goals- Your coach will begin by assessing your numerical goals. This includes your score, test date, start-of-prep date, weeks needed, desired score, and lots of other information.

Study Skills Assessment- We will use several questions to determine the study strategies that will work most effectively for you. This is the best time to develop lifelong strategies to make classes & medical school much easier. We will also provide a pre-prep study time assessment every few weeks to determine how many questions or chapters of each subject you can complete in a given time. We will provide a unique solution that may alleviate any underlying issues.

Student-Based Content Assessment- Even with your academic history, we do not know what specific information you have retained. Thus, we go over your premed courses and determine how strongly you feel about them. Afterwards, we go over the ENTIRE AMCAS MCAT outline to determine what you still remember. We use this knowledge to determine what you should study first, middle, and at the end of your prep, as well as what subjects should be studied more frequently. This is similar to taking a diagnostic exam, except we go over all of the material rather than just a very small portion of it.

Materials Used- We select the best materials and subjects to focus on in order to efficiently prepare you. We add in materials that are also OUTSIDE of the typical test prep books. Test prep books are sometimes too concise or were released before the writers knew enough about the exam. Because of this, we have our own compilation of materials resourced from hundreds of places. Depending on your readiness, your coach decides on what materials to study at specific times in order to keep you motivated and improving up until the day of your exam.

Time Assessment - Students have their own unique tricks to saving time. Our students also have busy schedules that may not coincide with their MCAT prep. We want to make sure you still get the same amount of hours in regardless of these activities. We begin by assessing your day-to-day routine on a typical MCAT study-day, and then determine solutions to each time-consuming activity. In our books, we consider all non-MCAT activities to be less important unless they will significantly affect your emotional, physical, or academic (GPA) lives, or medical school entrance abilities. We will then plan your next-weeks schedule on an hourly basis.

Nutrition Program-We will analyze your typical diet and, if desired, create a meal plan that is easily consumable and prep-able for your MCAT prep. 

Exercise Program- In this new day and age, most premeds perform some type of daily exercise. Our exercise programs are designed for you by a certified personal trainer who can help you with all goals from weight loss to muscle gain. We integrate weight training and cardiovascular activities free of charge in ways that can save you time but produce great effects.

Sleep Program- You must be wondering how we can even manage to train you for sleep! This is crucial for your prep. We check in on your sleeping schedule and make sure that, regardless of how motivated you may be, you are resting enough to store those last few chapters in your long-term memory. It is typically obvious when you are not sleeping enough but essential still.

Our Program

Daily- You are expected to study every day because we believe you can fit in at least 2 hours on even your busiest days and hope we can bring you up to 15 on your most well-rested days. We want to make sure you do your absolute best on test day. Because of this, we don't recommend "weekly rest days." Instead, we update your plan to prevent burnout and will update your plan so you can finish the assignment later. Daily, you will log your verbal and science scores in an online program in your site. You will also journal "generalized" tips on mistakes you may have made and ways you answered questions correctly every day. This document will be used throughout your prep for reference.

PRN- Your coach may notice your scores lowering or your mood changing or a special event. Your coach will also notice if you are having trouble focusing and suggest new study techniques. In these cases, they consult with you to determine a new strategy. Your schedule can change or shift almost daily if needed. Many students prefer phone call over text (as we require you to turn off your phone during studying). Coaches are able to adjust to do 5-10 minute daily phone calls rather than text. 

Weekly - You will have a phone call with your coach assess the week, edit the plan, and then to receive modifications as needed.Weekly strategies may change depending on your progress. Every day coach will begin to push you to your max every day through strategies we have developed to increase workload. Some of our students even take 2 exams and review in a single day. This will be difficult but will make the real exam that much easier.

The Week Before- If they haven't already, your nerves start kicking in! Our coaches will help turn them down a notch! One way we do this is by meeting with you EVERYDAY before your prep. This is planned in advance by each coach after they assess your entire prep's progress to hit subjects and offer tips which increase confidence, boost endurance, and cover high-yield topics. We want to make sure you enter the test room with a low stress attitude, yet still take the test with all of its importance.

The Day Before- By now, your sleep will have been tailored as well as your memory & mental  sharpness due to nutrition/exercise training. Our company has essential day-before steps which form a perfect balance between relaxation and mental agility. We prevent all the funky stuff and help you get into your plastic bubble of confidence for the big day. Sleep well :).

The Day Of- Good morning! Your coach will be sure to wish you goodluck (along with all of your friends & families). The adrenaline will keep you from feeling tired and we will be ready to speak with you right after! When you are ready that day, we will hold a post-MCAT consultation so you are reintroduced to your activities and also able to understand how to feel more patient during the waiting period.


Specific Focus- Axilogy focuses specifically on the MCAT because we understand that each test caters to a different group of students. As a small company, we are able to make our coaches & program exclusively focused on preparing premedical students for the MCAT.

Mastery- Our company and our coaches are masters at this craft. Regardless of how high your tutor may have scored, this knowledge can only be transferred to you if they know how to teach. A good teacher knows not only the tricks to success, but the small details that may lead to failure. You are taught on how to keep a list of both successes and failures in order to improve your test results.

Efficiency-  As a premedical student, you have already learned a lot of time management skills. We are here to make them even better! Our coaches assess your day-to-day life and find ways to increase your study time. This is also why we provide hourly plans in addition to a daily plan. 

Support- How can you increase your score without even opening up a book?  Support! Our company was developed to remove the competitiveness from this competitive exam. We understand that our students are at different parts of their lives, so our coaches to know how to motivationally and emotionally support you. Whether you are a mother, father, or traditional student, we will develop strategies to keep you focused on the MCAT and make the "other stuff" much easier.

Selection- We support all of our students! In order to do so, we will make sure you are aware of suggestions for test dates and we will review your academic history in order to see how much and how well we can prep in the specified amount of time. 

Signing Up- Before you sign up, you are welcome to call or email us in order to find the best test date and prep time for you. We will not push you to sign up until you think you are ready.

Confidence- We will not send our students to their testing room without instilling as much confidence in them as we possibly can. Many students are taught to believe the MCAT is a "monster" that is very difficult. This lowers students' confidence which later makes an impact on their score through nervousness, overthinking, and reguessing themselves. Unlike other aspects, it is very difficult to restore confidence in the MCAT as many strangers do not understand the exam. Confidence (not arrogance) is created in order to see that extra boost in your score.

Happiness- You may be thinking: "Why does a company care about our happiness?" Well, the truth is... because it affects your score! Studying for several hours a day for subjects you may struggle with is morally defeating. More so, leaving your hobbies, free time, friends, and loved ones behind may push you towards being unhappy. Our coaches have been there and can make sure you get out of that mindset before it leads to burnout. While we will make sure you work hard, we will not allow you to feel defeated.

Endurance- The main reason we only hire coaches who have taken the new exam is due to endurance. A 7 & 1/2 hour exam requires much more than extra material. The mental endurance for this exam is gained through practice, sleep, diet, and exercise. No matter how much time you may have, all of these factors play a major role in what your score will be on test day.

Time- Premeds are always on their feet. We do not want to change that. While we may recommend shortcuts and activities that can be cut out of your schedule, we will make sure that you find a way to fit in any and all study time. Whether it be doing review at the bench in your lab or reading notes while walking to class, our compilation of time-saving techniques will get you there. If time is still short, we will create a plan that allows you to learn the same material in a more condensed and faster pace.

Plateau- Students who prepare for the MCAT will end up plateauing once they run out of tricks. Are strategies are loaded with new ways to learn and more material than you can think of! Several of our students may sign up just because of a plateau and we support that! A plateau signifies the need for a change of pace and we are ready to provide the strategies which will get your score up!
