Asalamu alikum wr wb!

Dear Juniors,
This thread is intended for your help. I found the community here very helpful which has inspired me to do the same for others. Now I've collected SOME questions of MCAT 2012 (some from my memory, and some from other sources which i'll share with you at the end).

Please remember that some questions might be incomplete or inaccurate, but I've tried my best to find the accurate ones and have checked them against my memory too. So you can pretty much comfortably rely on these. Maybe the other members can confirm them too who gave entrance test in 2012? :)

...just continuing the legacy of "sharing knowledge". :)

Plx remember, do not hold back knowledge. The more you'll share it with others, the more it'll grow. So keep sharing...

Asalamu alikum!
These are the useful links you people can check

This one here is the most useful https://sites.google.com/site/entrytestpreparator/calendar
This site uploads MCAT past papers and when it does for MCAT 2012, then you wouldn't need to go through the above two posts.
All those questions and even more would be uploaded by admins. So you'll have complete proper papers inshAllah! ^_^

This here is a FB page administered by the same admins as above. It's a VERY interactive one and your questions would soon be answered plus they keep posting mcqs from time to time. So go here often Entry test preparation | Facebook

Hope this helps! please remember me in your duas! :oops:

prepare basic things in mcat organic like they asked in paper of 2012 which can show idoform test we choose the option in which C of carbonyl group is attached with one methyl group is the ans, how aldehyde converted to carboxylic acid obviously by oxidation they asked questions simply from test like lucas test and if i am not wrong benedict or tollens test question is also there

the tools for genetic enginnering A)genes B)chromosome C)enzymes and forth one i dont remember the ans was enzymes i guess it right in mcat by thinking that tools are those things who just helps. and do remember in bioenergetics that they are talking about glucose 6c compound or normal pyravate 3c compound if they talk about glucose than double the things we use for puyruvate i made this mistake there and dont forget to remember half lives of radioactive elements including those in radio isotopes and chart place above in radio isotopes and dont go for test without reviewing uhs mcat papers of 2011 and 2012 last year some 13 or 14 questions are from past papers#yes

make reaction of zwitter ion with NAOH you will get it because i think i read it in alevel book . and i think ammonia synthesis will stop. when in some element says X release alpha beta and gamma due to release of beta and gamma there will be no change in nucleon number but due to release of alpha x= nuleon number-4 will happen
