Does the graduate school you are applying to accept MAT scores?

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level test of analytical ability that requires the solution of problems stated as analogies. The MAT consists of 120 partial analogies that you have 60 minutes to complete. The test measures your ability to recognize relationships between ideas, your fluency in the English language, and your general knowledge of the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics, and social sciences.

  • The MAT is a high-level mental ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as analogies.
  • Performance on the MAT is designed to reflect candidates’ analytical thinking, an ability that is critical for success in both graduate school and professional life.
  • Through analogies with content from various academic subjects, MAT scores help graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond mere memorizing and repeating information.
  • The analytical skills measured by the MAT are key to success in graduate school and are highly valued by graduate programs.

As a reasonably priced test administered in 60 minutes, the MAT represents an excellent option for candidates applying to the hundreds of graduate programs that accept MAT scores for admission. For more information, study guide and practice test visit:
