Do you have a competitive DAT score? An elite DAT score? Or just a beginner DAT score? Find out your DAT score for the Perceptual Ability Test (PAT) in under 10 minutes with a quick 12-question quiz. We’ve drawn DAT practice questions from all question types of the Perceptual Ability Test, including Keyholes, Top-Front-End, Angle Ranking, Hole Punching, Cube Counting, and Pattern Folding.
The DAT PAT tests your spatial visualization skills, including your ability to interpret two-dimensional (2D) representations of three-dimensional (3D) objects. These DAT Perceptual Ability skills will be very useful to you as a dentist since you will need to construct mental images of teeth from X-rays, deal with casts and fillings, and otherwise work with complicated 2D and 3D objects.
The DAT is scored on a 1 to 30 scale. For each section of the test, the actual number of multiple-choice questions you answer correctly per section is your raw score. All multiple-choice questions are worth the same amount—one raw point—and there’s no penalty for incorrect answers. That means you should always fill in an answer for every question whether you have time to fully invest in that question or not. Never let time run out on any section without filling in an answer for every question. When considering your DAT score goal, it’s always wise to look at the average scores for the schools where you’re applying.
