Admission Exams

Professional exams are difficult and are not “just another science test.” Exams are designed to measure how much you have learned and retained, and how well you can apply knowledge in new situations. Successful applicants possess both an understanding of the fundamentals of science and the ability to apply knowledge to real or theoretical experimental settings and case studies. Check with the professional school of your choice for specific admission test requirements. Application packets for these exams are available online at the national exam’s website.
