MCAT Registration

Candidates who are applying to medical schools for further studies have to take a standardization test called the MCAT test. All medical professional courses like allopathic, osteopathic, pediatric, and/or veterinary medicine require the scores from this test. A statement with an intention of the candidate to apply for the medical institutions must be signed duly.

Registration for MCAT can only be done online. The student can register online through by using the web site www.aamc.org/students/mcat/registration.htm. The students must hold a valid a credit card to pay up for the test. It is better the student registers as early as possible to ensure choice of testing center. Online registration should be done 12 weeks prior the actual date of the test. There are about 600 testing centers for this test. These test centers are spread across the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Canada. The registration dates will be announced in the online test page.
