The MCAT

What is the MCAT?

The MCAT is a 7.5 hour computer-based test that serves as the standardized test for prospective medical school students. The MCAT is required for a medical school application and is most commonly taken in the spring semester of a student's junior year if they wish to enter medical school upon graduating undergrad. The MCAT covers four concepts:

  • Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems

  • Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems

  • Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior

  • Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills

Students can register for the MCAT at www.aamc.org/MCAT
