ALL ABOUT MCAT

The Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) is a standardized, multiple-choice examination designed to assess the examinee’s problem solving, critical thinking, and knowledge of science concepts and principles prerequisite to the study of medicine.

Almost all U.S. medical schools and many Canadian schools require applicants to submit MCAT exam scores.

MCAT TEST STRUCTURE

The MCAT is designed to assess the skills and knowledge that medical educators and physicians have identified as key prerequisites for success in medical school and in the practice of medicine.

Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems

This section asks you to solve problems by combining your knowledge of chemical and physical foundation concepts with your scientific inquiry and reasoning skills.

Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems

This section asks you to solve problems by combining your knowledge of biological and biochemical foundation concepts with your scientific inquiry and reasoning skills.

Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills

This section asks you to read and think about passages from a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, followed by a series of questions that lead you through the process of comprehending, analyzing and reasoning.

Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior

This section tests your ability to solve problems by combining your knowledge of psychological, social, and biological foundation concepts with your scientific inquiry and reasoning skills.

Scoring process and method

For each of the four multiple-choice test in the MCAT, the sections are scored out of a maximum of 132 on a scale with a minimum score of 118. The individual test scores are combined to create a total score that will range from 472 to 528.

A good MCAT score is 127 out of 132 in any one section, or 508 out of 528 for all four sections. Any score better than 516 is considered a competitive score for top medical schools.

During one admission cycle, you can sit for MCAT up to three times but no more than four times in consecutive years. Just for the record, you can take MCAT no more than seven times in your entire life!!! (who will take MCAT for seven times LOL)

If you have taken the MCAT multiple times, the medical school to which you would apply may do any one of the following with your multiple MCAT scores:

 

  • Evaluate the most recent score
  • Evaluate only the highest individual and/or set of scores
  • Evaluate an average of the sets of scores
  • Consider all scores equally and note the improvements

MCAT Score and GPA Requirements of Medical Schools in the US and Canada

In addition to your MCAT score, medical school admissions committees consider other factors in your application including your GPA, personal and academic experiences, demographics, medical school interview, letters of evaluation or recommendation, and personal statement.
