About PCAT

The PCAT is a specialized test developed by NCS Pearson that helps identify qualified applicants to pharmacy colleges. It measures general academic ability and scientific knowledge necessary for the commencement of pharmaceutical education. The PCAT is constructed specifically for colleges of pharmacy.

The PCAT consists of 232 multiple-choice items and one Writing topic. Candidates are given approximately four hours to complete the test (including administrative time for instructions and time for a short rest break about halfway through the test).
