MCAT Test Information and Registration Dates 2011

MCAT Test Information and Registration Dates 2011.

October 14, 2009

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a standardized, multiple-choice examination designed to assess the examinee’s problem solving, critical thinking, writing skills, and knowledge of science concepts and principles prerequisite to the study of medicine. Scores are reported in Verbal Reasoning, Physical Sciences, Writing Sample, and Biological Sciences. Medical colleges consider MCAT exam scores as part of their admission process.

Almost all U.S. medical schools require applicants to submit MCAT exam scores. Many schools do not accept MCAT exam scores that are more than three years old.

The MCAT exam is administered multiple times from late January through early September, and offered at hundreds of test sites in the United States, Canada, and around the world.

Registration is closed for 2009. Registration for January through May 2010 test dates will open in November.

Prepare for test day with Fastweb’s guide to standardized tests.

Regular registration for the MCAT costs $235, with an additional $65 for late registration costs. The AAMC Fee Assistance Program (FAP) aids individuals with extreme financial limitations who otherwise could not take the exam. The program reduces the regular testing fee for eligible individuals from $235 to $85. For more information, visit Association of American Medical Colleges.
