The National Medical Admission Test (NMAT) is a nationwide examination required for the entrance to any medical school in the Philippines.
It is sometimes considered as a MCAT equivalent, which is held in the United States. The test consists of Part I & Part II. Part I is a 200-item test with four subdivisions, which are on Verbal, Inductive Reasoning, Quantitative and Perceptual Acuity Skills and is a three-hour exam. Part II is a two-hour-30-minute test in the field of Basic Sciences such as, Biology, Physics, Social Sciences and Chemistry, all of which form 200 items. Qualified test takers are graduates and graduating students of degree programs.
The test does not have any pass or fail mark however the cut off grade for admission to medicine varies per school policy. Some schools even give scholarship grants to those with high scores and/or admirable scores from college.
