MCAT® Resource Hub for Admissions Officers
The MCAT® exam tests the foundational concepts and reasoning skills students need to be ready for today’s medical school. Scores from the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) help admissions officers and their committees make informed decisions about applicants’ academic readiness for the medical school curriculum. Scores from the MCAT exam are among many sources of application data that admissions committees use to select students with the right academic preparation, attributes, and experiences. Using MCAT scores in holistic review can help admissions officers construct classes that meet the academic, clinical, service, and research missions of their institutions. Please see our COVID-19 and the MCAT Exam pages for more information about MCAT health and safety.
