The PCAT at a Glance

Quantitative Ability

The Quantitative Ability section of the PCAT is designed to test the math skills that will be required in pharmacy school. The section contains 48 multiple-choice questions, 40 of which count toward your score. The remaining eight questions are experimental and do not affect your score, but you will not be able to distinguish between scored and experimental questions. You will have 45 minutes to complete the Quantitative Ability section, and no calculator will be provided. Questions test Basic Math (14%), Algebra (19%), Probability and Statistics (19%), Pre-Calculus (24%), and Calculus (24%).
