As you must already know, MCAT is a standardized computer-based exam that is conducted to get into medical schools abroad. However, these tests are not conducted in all countries. So you have to make sure you are choosing the right location first.

Luckily in your case, countries like the USA, Canada and Australia do have these tests for students. The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is administered by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) and it serves as a de-facto standard for admission in countries like the USA, Canada and Australia. These are some very popular destinations for studying abroad. 

This does not mean that if you wish to get into a medical school in a country like the USA, you have to go through an MCAT examination. There are a ton of schools in these countries that do not require the MCAT. However, it's a matter of your choice what school you are aiming for. It depends on personal choice and budget of course. Just make sure you are not making a decision based on the exams. The priority should be your goals and the education style of the university.

Keep in mind that you are also required to take an English language test to get into a foreign university. These are standardized tests that judge your ability to read, write and understand the language. If you need help or assistance in preparing or applying to any of these exams, let me know and I’ll try to be of help as much as I can.
