Registering for the MCAT
The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) 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.
If you are considering applying to an Australian Medical School for the 2017 intake, you will most likely need to write the MCAT. The MCAT is a standardized, multiple-choice examination designed to assess the examinee’s problem solving, critical thinking, and knowledge of science concepts and principles prerequisite to the study of medicine.
It is recommended that you visit the official MCAT website (https://students-residents.aamc.org/) for all of the important details regarding the test, including registration deadlines, testing dates, and locations.
