PCAT and MCAT are both tests that people may take for varying reasons. The MCAT is known as the Medical College Admissions Test. This is the type of test that you need so that you can become accepted to med schools. The test will tackle different biological and social sciences and would test people’s problem-solving skills. The PCAT is the Pharmacy College Admission Test. This has been created to be taken by people who would like to go to pharmacy colleges. This will test different skills and knowledge of the person who would like to become a pharmacist. Both of these tests are computer-based, but the MCAT’s length is longer. You may need to take it for more than seven hours, while the PCAT can be taken for about 3 1/2 hours.
