The Optometry Admission Test (OAT) is an important part of the application process to attend optometry school. This test is designed specifically to provide optometry education programs with a means to assess any applicant's potential for success. If you are struggling to prepare for the exam, Varsity Tutors can help you find an experienced OAT tutor who can help you.
The OAT is administered on a computer and is comprised of four sections lasting a total of five hours and five minutes, including an optional tutorial and break. The first section, Survey of the Natural Sciences, consists of 100 multiple-choice questions about biology (40%), general chemistry (30%), and organic chemistry (30%). An experienced tutor can show you how to use this section against itself by eliminating incorrect responses even if you're not sure what the correct one is, improving the likelihood that any educated guesses are correct.
