MCAT Score

Admissions committees look at a student's MCAT score and other factors to determine their eligibility for medical school. Learn more about MCAT scores and what ranges medical schools look for in.


What can I expect in the MCAT?

The MCAT exam consists of four sections: Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems; Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems; Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior; and Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills.

MCAT topics not only include natural sciences, but also psychology, sociology and—notably—biochemical sciences. In each section, reading comprehension and data interpretation will be critical in identifying the correct answer.

How is the MCAT scored?

Each of the four sections of the MCAT are scored using a range of 118 to 132, with 125 being the median score. You’ll receive a score for each section as well as an overall score. The overall score is centered at 500, with a range from 472 to 528.

The four sections scored include: 

  • Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior

  • Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills

  • Biological Sciences
