    What are the differences between the Canadian and American DAT?

    There are a few key differences between the Canadian and American DAT:

    • The Canadian DAT does NOT test organic chemistry or math.
    • The Canadian DAT has an optional manual dexterity portion, where a cylinder of soap is carved based on specific instructions provided.
    • The reading comprehension section on the Canadian DAT gives you 50 minutes to complete the 50 questions (the American DAT provides 60 minutes for the 50 questions).
    • The Canadian DAT is administered multiple times a year.

    The Canadian DAT and American DAT cover the exact same material in the biology and general chemistry sections. Given that DAT Bootcamp has developed high quality questions for the American DAT, Canadian students have found they translate very well for preparing for the Canadian DAT.
