    Okay, the other day i was talking to someone who said that the MCAT is a 12 hour long test, that sounds really fishy, or was the person correct? Is the test the same in the u.s and in Canada, or in canada does it take 12 hours? :confused:




    Thanks in advance!

    It's not 12 hours. The test itself is 5 hours and 45 minutes, but there are breaks and paperwork, which is why it usually takes 8-5 to take it. I don't know about Canada though.

    You spend 5 hours and 45 minutes actually doing the test. But including breaks and administrative stuff, it's something like 8 AM to 5 PM, so a total of 9 hours from when you get there and when you leave.
