Coronavirus (COVID-19) and The MCAT Exam

The AAMC continues to monitor guidance regarding the coronavirus from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and state and local health authorities, and we are reviewing and modifying operations and processes during this rapidly changing situation. Your health and safety are our priority during the COVID-19 pandemic and robust health and safety measures will be in place at all test centers when testing resumes. This webpage provides updates on the MCAT testing program’s response to COVID-19 and FAQs.

AAMC practice tests will not be shortened to match the length of the shortened exam, but the full-length practice exams and shortened test provide about the same time per question. Your practice products can still help you with pacing on the shortened exam and offer more practice questions to help you prepare. The MCAT Official Prep free resources and products will also continue to help you learn about the exam’s interface and features and give you the opportunity to review the Test-Day Certification at your own pace.
