I wanted to take the medical exam (MCAT) this year but I’m conflicted whether or not to take the medical exam and just practice more and take it in 2023.

If I take the MCAT in 2021, which month is more favorable? I was hoping to take it in August 2021?

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Have a Happy New Year. Thank you
