How Long Are MCAT® Scores Valid?

New section

New section

 

Medical schools generally accept scores dating back two or three years. If you have taken the exam previously, we recommend that you consult the Medical School Admission Requirements to check the application policies of each school to which you intend to apply.

The AAMC will continue to report scores from the prior version of the exam (administered from 1991 through January 2015) through the 2019 AMCAS application cycle. However, whether an individual medical school will continue to accept these scores through the 2019 AMCAS application cycle will depend on that individual medical school.

The AAMC conducted a survey about medical schools’ policies for accepting scores from the prior version of the MCAT exam (administered from 1991 through January 2015).
