If you want to become a veterinarian, there are a number of different tests you must take first. Some tests require a student to take and pass, just to enter veterinary school. While other tests are given after school requirements have been met and licensure is being sought. Take a look at the different tests below. Each article describes the test, breaks down the test sections, and provides other information such as where to receive study material, where to take the test, how much it costs and more.
GRE - The Graduate Record Examination is a test used by graduate programs and business schools to evaluate how prepared an applicant is to do graduate-level work. This test evaluates a person’s verbal reasoning, critical thinking, analytical writing and quantitative reasoning.
MCAT – The MCAT is meant to test a student on their problem solving, critical thinking, written analysis, writing skills, scientific concepts and principles. Learn about the different sections within the test that you will need to study.
VCAT – The VCAT is set up to test whether or not a student is ready for the educational workload that graduate school has to offer. Different universities use the results of the VCAT in many different ways. Learn about these different ways, the cost to take the test, and the sections within the test to study for.
