MEDICAL COLLEGE ADMISSION TEST (MCAT)
IMPORTANT: Southern Arkansas University does NOT administer the MCAT. Students who are required to take this exam for entrance to programs at SAU must take the exam at one of the locations that offer the test and have their scores sent to SAU.
For more details on testing dates, times, locations, and questions, about the MCAT see MCAT Exam Information.
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 prerequisite to the study of medicine.
The MCAT exam scores are reported in four sections:
- Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
- Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems
- Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior
- Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills
Almost all U.S. medical schools and many Canadian schools require you to submit MCAT exam scores. Many schools do not accept MCAT exam scores that are more than three years old.
