Altius Perfect-Match MCAT-2015 Practice Tests
The one MCAT-2015 preparation tool no examinee should ever go without!
The MCAT-2015 practice tests offered by big-box prep companies are inaccurate
Achieving excellence at any endeavor requires practice. However, practicing with the wrong materials does more harm than good. Currently, there are only two scored AAMC practice exams available, leaving students desperate for accurate MCAT-2015 practice. Test prep companies have been quick to produce practice tests, but our industry-leading analytics clearly demonstrate that these materials do not accurately prepare you for what you will actually see on test day. In fact, they aren’t even close. But don’t take our word for it; compare practice test passages side-by-side for yourself by viewing the slideshow below.

Tomorrow’s Doctors Deserve Better
We think tomorrow’s doctors deserve accurate practice tests and materials at an affordable price. To accomplish this goal, Altius assembled the most qualified curriculum development team ever created, featuring:
-- current and former admissions officers
-- 99.9th percentile MCAT scorers
-- more than 50 of the brightest PhD content experts from across the country.
Our team carefully analyzed how the AAMC develops actual MCAT-2015 test questions and we matched the AAMC item development process exactly. Because our process is perfectly-matched to the real MCAT, so are our practice materials.
It's no wonder our students are relieved to find that what they studied truly helped them prepare for the actual MCAT.
And it's no wonder that last year's Altius students scored, on average, in the 95th percentile!
You are Guaranteed to score in at least the 90th percentile when you complete an Altius 1-on-1 Mentor study program.

Practice tests so realistic and accurate, it’s like taking the MCAT…before you take the MCAT.
The result of our unprecedented effort to recreate the MCAT development process is a set of materials so realistic that our practice tests are statistically indistinguishable from the AAMC on over 100 different metrics. Here are a few of the ways our practice tests hit the mark where others don’t...

A preparatory tool no MCAT-2015 examinee should go without
If you wanted to be a professional basketball player, you’d consider it a necessity to practice with a correctly-sized ball and a regulation 10-foot hoop. If your dream was to become an Olympic Gold Medalist in the breaststroke, you’d want to practice in an Olympic-sized swimming pool, not your neighbor’s kiddie pool. If you want to become a physician, you should consider it a necessity to have access to the only MCAT-2015 practice materials that exactly replicate the real thing.
