Exam Description: Additional Information Register for this examThe MCAT is unlike any other test you have ever taken. This exam will not require you to produce facts from memory, but rather you will be tested on your thought process.
This exam will cover 4 timed sections including Verbal Reasoning (65 multiple-choice questions), Physical Sciences (77 multiple-choice questions), Biological Sciences (77 multiple-choice questions), and a Writing Sample (2 essays, 30 minutes each). Verbal Reasoning, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences will be graded on a 1-15 point scale with 15 being the highest, and the writing sample is scored on an alphabetical scale ranging from J-T with T being the highest.
All multiple choice questions are worth the same amount, and the great news is that there is no penalty for guessing. So no matter what, you should fill in every answer whether or not you know the answer.
