If you take it more than 3 times, you must provide proof of rejection from a dental school, before they will let you take it for a fourth time. As far as schools looking at your last or highest dat score, I believe they look at all the test and judge from that.

i think it's different for every school. For example I asked UoP and they said they look at the latest scores, even if they are lower. So her advice: if you're going to retake it, make sure you're completely prepared and get a higher score.

And they get your most recent three I believe.

I think I read that the schools have access to your previous DAT scores. And I think the schools are looking at the most recent DAT as the qualifier.

But double check for yourself from the schools or the AADSAS website.
