Hi! I would like to study in an optometry school. I have researched about the admissions the before- things-to-do. My question is, do I have to take the OAT if i there's only one pre-requisite subject that i have not taken in my college years?

Hoping for a reply.

Assuming I read the question correctly, you have to take the OAT. There is no way around taking the entrance exam. It is a key tool schools use to gauge your intellectual and critical thinking capacity.

You take the pre-requisite classes, and then you take the OAT. The OAT isn't for people who didn't take the pre-reqs.
