OAT Natural Science Practice Test

Congratulations on your decision to become an optometrist! There’s no doubt you’ve studied hard to make it as far as you have. Now you’re on the verge of applying to an official optometry education program. However, before you do, you must first establish that you have all the skills you’ll need to succeed in such a program. Enter the OAT, also known as the Optometry Admission Test. This test serves as an official entrance exam for any and every optometry program you’d like to get into. It assesses you on four core concepts which form the basis of optometry training curriculum.

As such, the OAT splits off into four parts that match these core subjects: Quantitative Reasoning, Survey of Natural Sciences, Physics, and Reading Comprehension. This page will provide you with information regarding the OAT Natural Sciences exam.

The Natural Sciences exam is the longest portion of the full OAT exam. You will be given 90 minutes to complete a total of 100 questions. Each question is multiple choice in format and pertains to such relevant subjects as chemistry (organic and general) and biology, among others.

At Mometrix Test Preparation, we want to see you succeed. That’s why we work hard to craft only the best study tools. One such study tool is our OAT Natural Sciences practice test, which you’ll find on this page. Our practice test has been devised through the help of extensive observations and research on the structure of the full OAT exam. As such, we recommend it to anyone interested in familiarizing themselves with the contents and structure of the exam. You can also use our practice test to fine tune your study guide based on your performance.

If you find you need extra help as you study, we also offer an OAT Natural Sciences study guide, also featured on this page. While it pairs best with our practice test, both of these resources are just as effective when used standalone. We hope they will form an effective part of your study plan. Good luck!
