What is the situational Judgement test AAMC?
The AAMC Situational Judgment Test (AAMC SJT) is a standardized exam that presents a series of hypothetical scenarios students may encounter in medical school and asks you to evaluate the effectiveness of a series of behavioral responses to each scenario.
What is a good score on SJT?
Generally, a score of band 1 or 2 is a ‚good‘ score within the UCAT Situational Judgement Test.
When should I take AAMC SJT?
You may take the AAMC SJT before you submit your AMCAS application. However, on test day, you will be required to select one or both participating schools to receive your scores. You may not send official score reports to any other schools this year.
Does MCAT have experimental questions?
Field test questions refer to experimental passages and questions that are NOT graded and therefore do not count towards your final MCAT scores. Instead these are experimental questions to see how students respond so that they will know how to grade these very same questions in future exams.
Can you fail the SJT?
There is no pass or fail mark. Applicants with exceptionally low scores will be invited to a review. For more detailed information on how the SJT is marked, please refer to the Applicant Handbook.
How can I study for SJT?

Can you talk about the MCAT after?
You may talk about your general exam experience or about how you felt throughout the exam, but you may not disclose any exam content (specific questions, answers, or topics) in any way that violates the Examinee Agreement. The Examinee Agreement applies to you regardless of your purpose for taking the exam.
Should you take the MCAT in the morning or afternoon?
You can choose to take the MCAT in the morning (7:30 am start time and finishing at 3:00 pm) or in the afternoon (starting at 3:00 pm and finishing at 10:30 pm).
What time should I arrive to the MCAT?
Arriving at the Testing Facility
Tests are typically scheduled to begin at 7:30 AM or 3 PM. You’ll need to arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled test time. If you’re late, the Test Administrator may not allow you to take the test and you will lose one of your test attempts, so plan for extra traveling time.
What should I eat on MCAT day?
Eat a normal, but healthy meal
Safe bets are granola, fruit, and yogurt. If you’re a coffee drinker, get some coffee. If you’re not, it’s not the right morning to start. Do what you normally do, so nothing out of the ordinary can sidetrack your MCAT performance.
Can you drink water during MCAT?
Water, just like food and gum, will be stored in a locker in the waiting room, and none of these items can be brought into the actual testing room. Therefore, while you are taking an MCAT section, you will not be able to drink water. Your locker can only be accessed during your three breaks.
