Medical school admission tests



The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a standardized, multiple-choice examination designed to assess your problem solving, critical thinking and knowledge of natural, behavioral and social science concepts and principles.  It is a prerequisite to the study of medicine.  Almost all North American schools require you to submit your MCAT score when you apply to their schools. 



For schools in the UK, most medical school there expect you to take either the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT), the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) or the Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT).  You should check the requirements for the school that you intend to apply and to make sure you take the right test.
