The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is required for admission to the vast majority of U.S. medical schools and even some Canadian medical schools. You have an opportunity to showcase everything you have learned in your biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, sociology, and english courses. The recently revised 2015 MCAT contains four sections: Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems (CP), Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills (CARS), Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems (BB), and Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior (PS).
The new MCAT will take about 7.5 hours to complete. Here is the basic layout for the exam:
