Test Requirements

Students interested in attending veterinary school should check with their prospective institutions for test requirements. Some schools require the Veterinary College Admission Test (VCAT), while others prefer the Graduate Record Examiniation (GRE) or Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

The VCAT is designed to measure achievement in areas critical for success in veterinary medical school. It consists of approximately 230 multiple choice questions, and measures five content areas: verbal ability, biology, chemistry, quantitative ability and reading comprehension. For more information, please see the VCAT website.
