The DAT (Dental Admissions Test) is required for dental school admissions. It is a computerized exam administered by Prometric Test Centers and can be taken nearly any day of the year. The test consists of four sections:
Each section is scored numerically on a scale of 1 to 30. The average of the first three sections is reported as the Academic Average, and dental admissions will look separately (and often very closely) at the Perceptual Ability section. Some published data on DAT scores is shown below:
There is no score that guarantees admission, but a competitive applicant will score 18 or higher in both Academic Average and Perceptual Ability. Wooster students enrolled in the Seven-Year Dual Degree Predental/Dental Program are required to score 18 or higher in both Academic Average and Perceptual Ability on the DAT.
