Frequently Asked Questions
Is the PCAT hard?
The answer to "Is the PCAT hard?" is "it doesn't have to be". The PCAT does cover a lot of content, and asks you to recall several years of undergraduate work, including calculus, in addition to testing your stamina with a long exam. As you get to know the PCAT's content and structure in your prep course, you'll also learn strategies for conquering the test.
What is a good PCAT score?
When considering your PCAT score goal, you should look at average scores at the schools to which you're applying. Pharmacy schools will consider your composite score of 200-600, and they may look at your percentile ranking. To give yourself the best chance at attending your top-choice school, you'll want to score well above the average for that school and perform well across all sections of the exam.
How long to study for PCAT?
How long you'll spend studying for the PCAT depends on where you start, what your target score is, and what your schedule is. The average student will spend 1-3 months on their PCAT prep. You'll want to study until you are consistently scoring in your target range on full-length practice tests, and feel comfortable with every aspect of the PCAT.
How to prepare for PCAT?
How you study for the PCAT depends on your goals, preferred study style, schedule, and more. The best way to study for the PCAT is to find a method that works for you, make a plan, and stick with it.
