The PCAT at a Glance

Verbal Ability

The Verbal Ability section will test your vocabulary and your knowledge of the English language. The section consists of 40 multiple-choice questions, all of which are scored items. As of 2014 there are no experimental items in the Verbal Ability section. The questions are split between Analogies (60%) and Sentence Completion (40%), and you will have 30 minutes to complete the section.
