FAQs

May I take the official PCAT more than five times?

After sitting for the PCAT five times, restrictions may be placed on any subsequent registration, and you may be required to submit additional documentation.


Where will the PCAT computer-based exam be administered?

The PCAT computer-based test will be administered by Pearson VUE Test Centers throughout the United States and in select international cities.  


How will I record my essay?

You will type your essay response. 


What information do I need when referencing my PCAT scores with PharmCAS?

You need your Candidate Information Number (CID). If you need to obtain your CID, log into the PCAT site with your user ID. Your CID will be displayed on your "My Profile” page near your name in the Account Information section. If your CID displays that it is "Unassigned” then there are no PCAT test scores associated with your user ID. You must provide your correct CID to PharmCAS or your scores will not be matched with your PharmCAS application.
