It is a multiple choice test and is used by many medical schools as a part of their admissions process. In fact, almost every medical school in the United States requires you to submit MCAT scores. In terms of scoring, you will receive five total scores on the exam, including one score for each of the four sections and one score that represents your total score. The sections are graded between 118 and 132 points and your total score can range from 472 to 528 points. Overall, the MCAT is designed to measure your skills in areas that are considered important to success in medical school.
