AAMC PREview™ Eligibility and Registration

New section

The AAMC PREview™ professional readiness exam, formerly the AAMC Situational Judgment Test, will be offered online multiple times in 2022.

New section

The AAMC and participating medical schools are working together to evaluate the AAMC PREview exam. Information about these schools and the AMCAS 2023 cycle will be announced as soon as it is available. Applicants will be strongly encouraged or required to complete the exam on one of the 2022 exam dates. If scores are ultimately shown to enhance the schools’ holistic review process, the schools may consider them as one part of their admission decisions.

The exam will be offered in five testing windows across 10 dates. Appointments will be available throughout each test day beginning at 8 a.m. Eastern Time. Your appointment time will be shown in your local, military time.
