About DAT Chemistry Exam
Date of Exam.

The DAT Tests are administered year-round at Prometric Test Centers in the United States, it's territories including Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada.

The student must apply to take the test with the American Dental Association (ADA) and receive eligibility letter prior to scheduling the testing appointment with Prometric

DAT Scores

DAT scores are based on the number of correct responses; therefore, examinees are not penalized for guessing. The results are reported in terms of standard scores rather than raw scores or percentile equivalents.

Scores used in the testing program range from 1 to 30. There are no passing or failing scores; the standard score of 17 typically signifies average performance on a national basis.

Layout of DAT Exam

The DAT consists of the following four tests:

  1. Survey of the Natural Sciences (100)
    Organic Chemistry (30) - For subjects covered in the syllabus
    General Chemistry (30) - For subjects covered in the syllabus
    Biology (40) - For subjects covered in the syllabus
  2. Perceptual Ability (90)
    The Perceptual Ability Test is comprised of six subtests: 1.) apertures, 2.) view recognition, 3.) angle discrimination, 4.) paper folding, 5.) cube counting, and 6.) 3D form development.
  3.  Reading Comprehension (50)
    This test contains three reading passages on various scientific topics. Prior understanding of the science topics is not a prerequisite to answering the test items. The reading passages require the ability to read, comprehend, and analyze thoroughly basic scientific information.
  4. Quantitative Reasoning (40)
