The OAT is made up of 220 multiple-choice questions distributed into four different sections: Survey of the Natural Sciences, Reading Comprehension, Physics, and Quantitative Reasoning Tests. The total time for the test is 3 hours and 55 minutes, but can be extended to 4 hours and 35 minutes due to an optional 15 minutes for a starting tutorial, 15 minutes for a break after the first two sections, and 10 minutes for an end of the test survey.
The OAT consists of four tests:
- Survey of the Natural Sciences (Biology
- General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry)
- Reading Comprehension
- Physics and Quantitative Reasoning.
Successful participants who take the OAT typically complete at least one year of college education, including courses in biology, general and organic chemistry and physics. Most applicants complete two or more years of college before taking the test.
The OAT exam is computerized and examinees are allowed to take the OAT an unlimited number of times, but must wait at least 90 days between testing dates. Applicants who have three or more OAT attempts must apply for permission to test again, and from that point forward may retest only once per twelve-month period. Scores from the four most recent attempts and the total number of attempts will be reported.
