The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT)
The MCAT is taken by individuals applying to Medical Schools. The exam is now offered only in computer-based form. CU-Boulder Testing Services is an authorized center for delivering computerized MCAT.
Registration and information, including test dates, is all online at www.aamc.org. Select our center under the Colorado and Boulder headings if you wish to test here.
The MCAT is a graduate entrance examination for those students who--after four years of undergraduate study--aim at studying medicine. It is a screening device for medical schools, designed to assist admissions committees in identifying applicants who have a broad liberal arts education as well as a solid scientific background and adequate writing skills.
The computer-based MCAT consists of four separate subtests, delivered in a 5-hour testing session:
- Verbal Reasoning
- Physical Sciences
- Writing Sample in 2 parts
- Biological Sciences
Score reports are usually sent 6 weeks after the test is taken. Score reporting is the responsibility of:
