The PCAT at a Glance

Chemistry

The Chemistry section of the PCAT contains 48 multiple-choice questions, 40 of which count toward your score. The remaining eight questions are experimental and do not affect your score. As of July 2014, there will be two 150-300 word passages, each with four associated questions, presented during the Chemistry section. Questions in the Chemistry section are divided among General Chemistry (50%), Organic Chemistry (32%), and Biochemistry (18%). You will have 35 minutes to complete the Chemistry section.
