The Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) score is a critical element in the application portfolio of prospective pharmacy students. Due to its formidability, it is often considered to be a "weed out" tool, where success requires commitment and excellent test preparation, the latter of which is our speciality and the former a quality found in most pre-pharmacy students.
This exam consists of several basic areas: Chemistry, Biology, Quantitative Ability, Verbal Ability, Reading Comprehension and a Writing section.
Before taking the exam, college students should complete:
Students may retake the PCAT five times. Each score may be looked at separately. If students do retake the exam, it is advised that students increase their score for each retake. Most colleges do not drop the lowest score or average scores. PCAT scores more than two years old may not be considered when making admissions decisions.
In order to be competitive, Jamie recommends students have PCAT scores greater than the 75th percentile for both the composite score and each sub-score. Although the PCAT is a standardized exam, scores are viewed as an indicator of retention and are not used solely as a final parameter for acceptance or non-acceptance to pharmacy school.
