Similarly, you may ask, what does a positive DAT test indicate?
A positive DAT means that there are antibodies attached to the RBCs. In general, the stronger the DAT reaction (the more positive the test), the greater the amount of antibody bound to the RBCs, but this does not always equate to the severity of symptoms, especially if the RBCs have already been destroyed.
Additionally, what is a good score on the DAT? The highest possible score on the DAT is a 30; and a score of 20 is considered average. An 18 is generally considered the minimum score for getting into any dental school. If you're looking to get into a more prestigious school or into a specialty program, a score of 21 or higher is a must.
Then, is the DAT test hard?
The test is science-based, and Sul described it as similar in structure to the math and science section of the SAT–except harder. She explained that the main subject areas she studied were general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, and perceptual ability.
What does the DAT test consist of?
The Dental Admission Test (DAT) consists of multiple-choice items distributed across a battery of four tests: the Survey of the Natural Sciences (Biology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry), Perceptual Ability Test, Reading Comprehension Test, and Quantitative Reasoning Test.
