Rescheduling/Canceling MCAT Test Date

Candidates who wish to reschedule their test date will be able to do so without any additional costs for the time being. They can do so online through the MCAT Registration System by logging in or by phone at 202-828-0600. If the candidate wishes to cancel the scheduled examination, they will have to provide a legitimate reason for the same.

If the candidate is canceling due to COVID -19, they will be able to file an Emergency Refund Request which will let them receive part of the fee.

Retaking the MCAT

The MCAT test is a turning point in the lives of most medical students. Due to the importance of receiving a high score in the exam, in order to receive admission at top medical colleges, candidates often take and retake the test before applying for admission. Candidates will be able to attempt MCAT only 7 times in their lifetime.

Other conditions for retaking the test are that candidates will not be able to retake the test more than 3 times in a year. In a 2-year time span, candidates will be able to take the test only a maximum of 4 times. This is to refrain the candidates from taking the test month after month without benefiting from the practice.
