One of the most challenging sections for all pre-med students is the MCAT’s Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills (CARS) section. Typically, almost all students have read the basic scientific concepts, but they are not used to study the cold-hard facts of critical analysis and reasoning section. With that said, many students wish to improve their score in this section
3. Don’t move through materials too quickly
Some students have a knack for going through the materials too quickly, especially this section. On top of it, many tried to answer the questions by a guess. This is not a good way to answer the questions. The reason is you could miss critical information if you just fly through the materials. So, you should remember the following advice –
- Take 5 seconds to think to understand the contents of the passage.
- After reading a paragraph, take at least two seconds to figure out what the paragraph is describing.
- Repeat this strategy for every paragraph.
- Again, take at least five seconds to find out - what are you asked to write.
- Repeat this for every question you answer.
