The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a mental ability test that is required for many graduate programs. Performance on the MAT is designed to reflect candidates’ analytical thinking, an ability that is critical for success in both graduate school and professional life.

Through analogies with content from various academic subjects, MAT scores help graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond mere memorizing and repeating information.

More information and practice tests can be found on the MAT website.
