Some FACTs about the MCATs

MCATs gauge your critical thinking skills, and NOT mere ability to recall information (content based tests). MCATs questions test your ability to use tools required to succeed in medical school (Reading Comprehension, Data Analysis & Critical Thinking)

(IT’S A TEST OF MENTAL ENDURANCE …. Ability to focus and process information for over ~ 5.5 hrs)

MCATs do test some factual subject content, however most of the emphasis is on reading comprehension (knowledge by reference), data analysis (interpretation ofexperimental results presented) and critical thinking (including extrapolation of presented data and analysis of hypothetical variations of experimental data).

All in all, the test looks at a student’s potential prospectively (predictor of success in medical school)

At KEBSAR we re-teach the sciences with an MCAT perspective and focus. We teach you how to understand keys concepts and how they relate to one another as opposed to memorizing a bunch of facts

Some FACTs about the DATs

Your DAT score is weighted pretty heavily in the admissions process and hence it is critical to have at least an average of 19+ score. Dental school admissions committees use your DAT score in conjunction with your with your academic GPA to assess whether you have the academic foundation upon which to build a successful dental career

. The DAT is designed to provide dental schools with common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants. The exam measures general academic aptitude, comprehension of scientific information, and perceptual ability.

The test is offered exclusively on computer and consists of a battery of four distinct tests: Survey of Natural Sciences, Perceptual Ability, Reading Comprehension, and Quantitative Reasoning.
