MCAT test dates for 2019, as well as score release dates set by the AAMC are presented here. We have also compiled information from the AAMC regarding MCAT registration and testing centers in the United States, Canada and international locations. Ideally, you would choose an available MCAT test date at a convenient location that allows you the most study time while balancing the score release date which will give you time to submit your MCAT score relatively early in the application cycle.
Consider visiting your MCAT test center prior to your exam date to familiarize yourself with the route to get there and the time necessary. Also consider watching this video: Exam day procedures including security.
The MCAT registration fee is $315 if made at least three weeks before the exam. There are 3 registration 'zones' that have corresponding registration fees, re-scheduling fees, cancellation refund and fee assistance program (FAP) fees. The FAP was designed for students who are unable to finance their MCAT prep. You need to apply for the FAP before your MCAT registration. For more information, click here: FAP
