What is the MCAT, and who takes it?
The Medical College Admission Test, or MCAT, assesses mastery of skills that are essential for success in medical school. It is administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and is a standardized, multiple-choice exam. Almost all medical schools in the United States, as well as many in Canada, require MCAT exam scores for medical school applicants.
What is on the MCAT?
The MCAT is used to determine applicants’ problem solving skills, critical thinking, and knowledge of scientific concepts. It is broken into four sections: Physical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Verbal Reasoning, and the Writing Sample.
How do I register for the MCAT?
You can take the MCAT at one of hundreds of locations throughout the U.S., Canada, and around the world. It is offered multiple times throughout the year, and you can take it up to 3 times per year.
You can register for the MCAT on the Association of American Medical Colleges website.
