Hii...I wanted to enquire if an agriculture bsc student can appear for MCAT?

Shivang Dubey 26th May, 2020

Hey Ankita

To be eligible for Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) you need to have a MBBS degree and for other courses you need to have a special permission from AAMC authorities.

  • Also for giving MCAT a student must have interest in Allopathic, Osteopathic, Podiatric and Veterinary.

Considering your case, sorry but you won't be eligible for MCAT as Agriculture is not related to Bio-Medical or Health related studies. For more information follow; MCAT Careers360

Hii Chaitanya!

Your question is quite unclear. But, let me tell you that, to apply for MCAT examination, the registration fee is $ 310. This is approximately INR 25,750. The rest of the cost of studies for 1 year in foreign university depends on the College you get according to the marks obtained in the exam. You can check out the fees by visiting the official Website of the respective Colleges you are interested in.

Hope this helps.

Good luck!

Animesh Vats Student Expert 13th Mar, 2020


Well as far as I know then a student need to complete a bachelor's degree with the pre medicine track in order to eligible for medical school and then they take MCAT for admission in medical courses. Diploma is not appropriate and you need the pre med track of course.

I hope my answer helps.

All the best.
