Our Approach

Step 1

The first thing we do is learn about your goals, learning needs, schedule, and experience with the PA-CAT. This way we can match you with a tutor who will best suit you.

Step 2

Once you have been matched with a tutor, you will meet with them to begin planning out your PA-CAT preparation course. Rather than creating generic lesson plans, your tutor will work with you to create a personalized study program that integrates your solo study prep with tutor guidance to make the most out of your prep time.

It is important that we understand your goals and areas of focus for this exam so we can help tailor your study to the information you need the most guidance in. By creating a study plan along with your tutor, you will be able to work with a completely custom plan that is designed in every way to match your needs. The knowledge you’ll need for the PA-CAT will be necessary as you continue on into PA school and your future career, so we want to help you actually retain the information. We want to make sure that you learn and understand the material, not just memorize facts.

Step 3

Once you begin to create your plan for your test prep, your tutor will begin introducing practice questions and practice tests to help you get comfortable with the format of the PA-CAT. They will also teach you testing strategies to help relieve test anxiety and ensure that exam day will be as stress-free as possible.

If you prefer a group environment, we can also create a group PA-CAT prep course online or in-person to match your busy lifestyle. Groups are formed on an as-needed basis, so whenever you and your classmates are ready to take your test prep to the next level, we can help.

New to PA-CAT prep? Here’s some information about the PA-CAT:

The Physician Assistant College Admission Test (PA-CAT) is a fairly new standardized test designed to assess your knowledge of key science subjects. The nine subjects covered by the PA-CAT are pre-requisites required by most PA schools and will be presented randomly on the electronic exam. You will have 4.5 hours to answer 240 multiple-choice style test questions.

Subjects that will be included on the exam include:

  • Anatomy
  • Behavioral Sciences
  • Biochemistry
  • General Biology
  • General and Organic Chemistry
  • Genetics
  • Microbiology
  • Physiology
  • Statistics

Your official PA-CAT score will be released within 8 weeks after you have completed the exam and official transcripts will be sent to the schools you designate.

As this exam is designed to show your knowledge and skill level to potential PA schools, you will receive a scaled score and a subject group scaled score. This means that there is no “passing” score, but rather that your score will be compared with other applicants to determine who has the necessary skill for a particular PA program.
