Certain medical schools, dental schools, and healthcare programs (such as nursing and physical therapy) require that applicants write an online test called CASPer®, a 90 minute web-based test, as part of the admissions process. Examples of schools that have used CASPer® as an admissions tool include: McMaster University (McMaster), University of Ottawa (uOttawa), Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (Rutgers RWJ), and New York Medical College (NYMC).

Which Schools Use CASPer®?
Why Prepare in Advance for CASPer®?
For example, an applicant’s CASPer® result is worth 32% of the score used to determine interview eligibility for McMaster University, which represents the same weighting as candidates’ grades and MCAT scores.
With so much emphasis placed on CASPer®, preparation is essential to secure an interview invitation. More than any other technique, practice simulations offer the best means of preparing for the test and giving you a competitive advantage. Simulations provide a better sense of what to expect, which reduces anxiety and allows you to be better placed to perform at your best.
