  • The Queen’s School of Medicine imposes NO restrictions on the number of times that the candidate may take the test.
  • In the event an applicant has written the test multiple times, the applicant must ensure that all test results are released to OMSAS. All MCAT scores will then be reported by OMSAS to Queen’s University.
  • Test results are valid from any test written within 5 years of the application submission, but this only applies to the 2015 MCAT as the committee no longer assess test scores prior to 2015.
  • Applicants whose MCAT score have not been submitted prior to the assessment of their file may be disqualified.
  • Applications will be assessed based on the scores from the candidate's best test results.

Please note:

  • The School of Medicine is aware that applicants may not have received the results of the September writings of the MCAT prior to the application deadline. Applicants will not be penalized in the event that MCAT scores are released after the expected October MCAT release date; however, applicants must release their scores as soon as they are made available.


  • The School of Medicine Admissions Committee has stated;  as of May 2017, Queen’s School of Medicine will no longer be accepting any MCAT scores prior to the 2015 MCAT. Therefore applicants applying in the fall of 2017 will be required to submit scores from the latest version of the MCAT.
