    February 2019 DAT Thoughts

    I studied a lot harder and focused on the right content using the right materials, it ended up paying off: Nov 2018 DAT: Bio 17/ Chem 19/ PAT 18/ Reading 18/ AA 18 Feb 2019 DAT: Biol 26 / Chem 21/ PAT 20 / Reading 20 / AA 23

    February 2019 DAT Thoughts

    Biol and Chem: Nothing too crazy. There were a few questions that gave me a hard time but I managed to finish with just a few minutes to spare. The questions weren't like DATBootcamp on this DAT either, they were more similar to DATCrusher. PAT: What was up with the burry TFE questions?? I don’t remember the TFE questions being that blurry on the November DAT. The only part that gave me a hard time were the keyhole questions but the rest of the questions went well. Reading: This section was the most tough for me. A lot of the wording threw me off, especially for that one asking about the tone of the author, I wasn't sure about what they exactly meant. I barely finished on time and had to guess on 2 questions near the end. Overall I felt a lot more confident this time around than on the November DAT. Last time, I made the mistake of focussing on DATBootcamp when the real DAT wasn’t anything like Bootcamp’s practice tests for any of the sections. So this time around I changed my strategy and focused on DATCrusher, DATReady and used some of the IQpublications books. I definitely felt more prepared this time around.
  3. But don't some programs look at last few years? Technically if you kill the last few years you could.

    Upcoming Dat

    It's not needed, the questions on the November DAT wasn't anything like the questions in DATdestroyer or DATBootcamp. They were very straight straightforward like the questions in Crusher and somewhat like the DATready books.
  5. I'm in a weird position. I didn't get any interviews this year because of low DAT scores. These are my stats: 3.90 GPA DAT: 18 AA (Bio 17, Chem 19, PAT 18, Reading 18) I know my DAT scores were pretty low and i'll be retaking the DAT in 3 weeks. The problem is my coursework this semester is very intense and I'm not getting the time to study for the DAT. I'm considering postponing the DAT until November but it'll put me in a bad position incase I do bad again. Is there any repercussions to taking the DAT multiple times?

    November 2018 DAT Thoughts

    This sucks, I did so bad even though I dedicated my entire summer to follow DATBootcamp's Ari schedule. My scores are completely different than my predicted DATbootcamp scores: Real Scores: Bio 17 Chem 19 PAT 18 Reading 18 Academic Average 18 DATBootcamp scores: Bio 21-24 Chem 23-27 PAT 23-28 Reading 21-24 Not sure what to do, I feel like I wasted my entire summer now. I have a 3.9+ GPA McGill so I know i'm not dumb. Not sure if the test was poorly scaled or if I spent too much time using a bad resource. I know bootcamp isn't representative of the Canadian DAT but I didn't think it would be this bad

    PAT cutoff for Western

    I believe they only have a cutoff for RC and not the PAT
  8. I had no idea you can even cancel your scores. But whats the point when schools look at your best scores anyways?
  9. Will be writing the american DAT soon and need a spare datbootcamp or datcrusher account. Inbox me please, thanks Edit: Nevermind. I just found that you can't apply to Canadian dental schools using american DAT scores

    Ya I 100% agree, it wasn’t anything like bootcamps questions at all, the questions were very straight forward. It was much closer to datcrusher. I’m taking full courseload with 5 tough classes so i wish i studied more efficiently. Oh well, it's done now and time to forget about it and focus on bringing the GPA back up Anyone know when the scores will be released?

    Just curious if theres any updates on this question, im curious too since ill be in this position soon
  14. I have a few questions for those who took the Canadian DAT already. 1. Are we allowed to eat in between breaks for each section? 2. Are we allowed to bring our own gloves if we are carving soaps? 3. Are we allowed to write on the test itself? 4. Can we bring a watch into the exam? Thanks, i'm a bit nervous and just wanted to clarify
