All of our practice exams include:

  • Fully realistic testing interface

  • Built from the ground up for the new exam. The PCAT underwent a fundamental change in 2016. Next Step’s practice PCATs were built from the ground up for the new test in mind, rather than shoehorning old content into the current format like many companies.
  • Statistical performance breakdowns. After taking the PCAT practice test, understand how you performed in each section.
  • We continually improve our scoring scales, question difficulty, and passage content, based on feedback from thousands of students.

Q: I’m already enrolled in a prep class, have been studying on my own, etc. Will these tests be helpful?

Yes. Our tests were designed from the ground up for the new test rather than re-purposing old material. You will likely find that this “fresh take” for the new PCAT will offer you a different perspective from legacy passages developed a decade ago from other companies.

Q: How do I receive access to these tests?

You will be emailed an access code automatically within 15 minutes of making a purchase.  If you don’t see the email in your inbox please check your junk and/or spam folders.  Also, if possible sign up with a non-.EDU email address as colleges and universities have more aggressive email filtering.

Q: Who wrote these tests? How do I know they are any good?

A team of over a dozen writers with in-depth PCAT experience worked to perfect these exams. Our test development team includes PhDs, MDs, current residents, and multi-year test prep veterans. We continuously work to improve our scoring scale to be closer to real PCAT scores, to clarify explanations, and to balance difficulty of each exam.

Q: Are these official tests?


Q: What is your refund policy?

All sales of PCAT practice tests are final and no refunds will be issued, even if you choose not to access some or all of the exams. If you encounter technical difficulty while using the exams, we are happy to work with you for as long as needed to resolve the issue so that you can benefit from this PCAT practice test.

Q: Can I buy just one test, or a custom bundle of tests?
No. We only sell our exams in the bundles listed above.
