About the MCAT

Until January 2015, the MCAT consists of three scored sections in multiple-choice format - Verbal Reasoning, Physical Sciences, and Biological Sciences. The majority of the questions are divided into passage sets which evaluate text comprehension, data analysis, ability to evaluate arguments, and problem-solving abilities in physics, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biology. The test finishes with a 45-minute Trial Section which is optional, not scored, and is not a part of the exam taker's overall score. Scores for the three multiple-choice sections range from 1 to 15. The numerical scores from each multiple-choice section are also added together to give an overall score ranging from 3 to 45. According to the AAMC, the average scaled score of test-takers in 2012 was 25.2.

In 2015, the MCAT is undergoing its biggest change since its last comprehensive redesign in 1992. With as much as 50% of the exam content changing, the biggest changes will consist of testing in biochemistry, multicultural/behavioral concepts, and critical analysis/reasoning from the humanities. With 230 questions over 6 hours and 15 minutes versus the current 144 questions in 3 hours and 20 minutes, the new test will require additional stamina and focus.

Starting in April 2015, the new “MCAT 2015” will consist of four scored multiple-choice sections. The Biological Sciences section is changing to the Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems section and will include an emphasis on biochemistry content typically found in introductory biochemistry courses. The Physical Sciences section is changing to the Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems section and will test your knowledge of the basic chemical and physical principles that underlie the mechanisms operating in the human body.

The Verbal Reasoning section is changing to the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section and will no longer include passages on the natural sciences. Instead, it will focus on critically analyzing information from a wide range of social sciences and humanities disciplines, including ethics and philosophy, cultural studies, and population health.

A new fourth section called Psychological, Social and Biological Foundations of Behavior will test your ability to understand sociocultural, biological and psychological influences on behavior and social interactions as well as how people process emotion and stress.

Each of the four sections on the MCAT 2015 will be individually scored using a new 118 to 132 scale. The numerical scores from all multiple-choice sections will also be added together to give an overall score ranging from 472 to 528.  The median score is expected to be 125 per section and the overall median score is expected to be 500.

Registration for the MCAT 2015 opens up in February with test dates running from April through to September of 2015.

Understanding Your MCAT Scores

You are able to view your score online at http://services.aamc.org/mcatthx/ approximately one month after your test date between 5:00 pm and midnight EST.

For MCAT exams written before April 2015, you will receive a separate score for each of the first three content sections of the MCAT exam, as well as a total score. Scores for the multiple-choice sections (Verbal Reasoning, Physical Sciences, and Biological Science) will be graded on a scale ranging from 1 (lowest) to 15 (highest). Questions that are left unanswered are classed as an incorrect answer. Your total score is the sum of the three individual scores. The Trial Section is not scored.

For MCAT exams written after March 2015, each of the four individual sections on the exam will be scored using a 118 to 132 range, with a median score of 125. You'll receive a score for each section, plus an overall total score. Total scores will be centred at 500, with ranges from 472 to 528.

Scaled Scores

Raw scores are converted to scaled scores because of the small variations in difficulty between the questions. Converting the scores helps lower the variability in test scores. The 15 point scale provides a more precise evaluation of a student's abilities.

Getting Your Scores into AMCAS and Releasing to Non-AMCAS Institutions

Scores are automatically released to the AMCAS for students who have taken the exam since 2003. Students do not need to insert their scores into an application; however, they cannot withhold any scores either. 

Scores that are two or three years old are generally accepted by Medical Schools. However, it is recommended that you check the application policies of the school that you plan to apply to ensure your score is not outdated.

Test Centre or Date Changes

Changes to your test date and/or test centre can be made as long as there are seats available before the posted regular registration deadline associated with your initial test date. Also keep in mind that additional registration fees will apply. 

Registration Zone Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Fee Fee Assistance Date and/or Test Center Reschedule Fee
GOLD Zone $65 $25
SILVER Zone $125 $45
BRONZE Zone N/A (no reschedule option) N/A (no FAP reschedule option)

Cancellation and Refund Policy

If a test-taker decides that they do not want to participate in the writing of the exam after they have registered for it, they will be eligible for a partial refund if the cancellation is performed by the posted regular registration date.

The maximum refund for the regular registration fee is $135; if a test-taker receives fee assistance from the AAMC, their refund will be $100. Additional fees paid for late registration or other charges are not refundable.

To make a refund request, students will need to cancel their exam online at least 14 days in advance to the test date. Generally, the refund will be automatically applied to the original form of payment; however the funds may not appear on your account for a few days. Please note that the AAMC does not grant deadline extensions or have an appeal process.

If a student misses the cancellation deadline, it is best to still request a cancellation without a refund. This process will allow the student to register sooner for another test date. If doing so, contact the MCAT Resource Centre no later than 2 business days prior to the test date registered for.
