The Medical College Admission Test, or MCAT, is a multiple-choice standardized test required for admission to almost all medical schools in the United States and Canada. The test measures your knowledge of the physical and biological sciences as well as your ability to solve problems and think critically. If you decide not to take the test, you can cancel online.
Cancelling Your Test
Cancel your test by logging in to the MCAT Scheduling and Registration System and clicking "How to Cancel." You should receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of cancelling your test. You can also reschedule your test date or test center in the MCAT Scheduling and Registration System by clicking "How to Reschedule." Changing your test date or test center will cause you to incur additional fees.
If you cancel your MCAT at least 14 days before your test date, you are eligible for a partial refund. If you paid the full registration fee, you will receive a $135 refund; if you did not pay the full registration fee, you will receive a $100 refund. Your refund will be automatically applied to your account. If you cancel your test within 14 days of the test, you will not receive a refund.
