How do you score well on the SAT?
As much as the SAT match section tests mathematical proficiency itself, acing it also requires just as strong of a grasp on test taking techniques such as plugging in answer choices, strategic elimination, and more.
How do you perform well on the MCAT science sections?
Scoring highly on the MCAT involves having a strong foundational base in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, organic chemistry, etc and problem solving based on information in the test by applying topics across all the sciences, because the MCAT is interdisciplinary!
In the immune system, what is the difference between innate and adaptive immunity?
Innate immunity is a generalized defense mechanism our bodies have against invaders, recognized via antigens, which are proteins on the invaders’ cell surface. Since innate immunity is nonspecific, in healthy individuals it’s always active. Meanwhile, adaptive immunity is a specific response to the invader/antigen itself. Since adaptive immunity is personalized to each antigen, it is more complex and can take a while for the body to create an immune cell specially designed to attack a particular antigen.
