    November 2018 DAT Thoughts

    While true, if you look closely at the Feb 2018 DAT the lowest score was a 6 (68 people received) besides the 4 people who received a score of 0. A score of 5 did not exist on this sitting. Furthermore, if you look at the Nov 2017 DAT the lowest score was also a 6 (98 people received) besides the 3 people who received a score of 0. A score of 5 also did not exist on this sitting. The Nov 2018 DAT had similar if not the same percentiles but the lowest score given was a 5 (100 people received) with no one receiving a score of 6. By looking at these results, one could assume that if they had preformed in the exact same manner as they did to receive a score of 5 on the Nov 2018 DAT they would have yielded a score of 6 in the other sittings. This sort of discrepancy should be allowed. Mcgill also just recently implemented the DAT as a requirement and from my point of view it looked as if they just wanted their applicants to achieve the minimum score (besides 0). Everyone who wrote in the previous 2 sittings would meet this requirement, besides the few who scored a 0. The same cannot be said for the Nov 2018 DAT.

    I also wrote to Mcgill about the MDT and how the minimum score given on the NOV DAT was 5, instead of 6 as in previous sittings. They sent me the exact same response, so hopefully they're going to adjust the requirement. The more people that email, the greater the chance!

    Does anyone know if the French DAT scale is calculated independently of the English one? I managed to get 99th percentile in Bio but only received a score of 17... Also why are the pattern of scores for the MDT so spaced out? For example there are many who scored 5, none who scored 6-7, and then some who scored 8. Sucks because I know Mcgill's cutoff is 6 to apply.
