The PCAT at a Glance
The Biology section of the PCAT contains 48 multiple-choice questions, 40 of which count toward your score. The remaining 8 questions are experimental and do not affect your score; however, you will not be able to distinguish between scored and experimental questions. Topics tested include General Biology (50%), Microbiology (20%), and Human Anatomy and Physiology (30%). You will have 30 minutes to complete the Biology section.
