    I am a junior premed student(bs bio) studying in the Philippines. I am planning to take up Medicine in the States. Do I still have to take the NMAT if I should study there? Or should I just take an "exam" there? :confused:

    I don't know what the NMAT is... but I'm going to guess that if you want to do med school here, you'll need to take the MCAT.

    The NMAT is a mandatory test for those who wish to enroll in any of the medical schools in the Philippines. So, anyone (Filipino or other nationalities) who wishes to study in the Phils., must therefore take the NMAT.

    If you plan to study Medicine in the US, then you don't have to take the NMAT.

    The US counterpart of the NMAT is the MCAT so, yes, you do have to take it if you want to study Medicine Stateside.
