Yes, we provide bulk discounts to group orders consisting of more than 10 people. Please have your representative from your pre-optometry society reach out to us via email to set one up for your university.


Will I be able to pause a test?
Yes, click on the timer at the top right in the test to pause the test.
Will I be able to abort a test and resume it later?
The objective and purpose of CrackOAT is to help you simulate the OAT exam under realistic conditions. Because on exam day you will not have the option to pause and pick up where you left off, we do not provide this capability. To reap the benefits of rehearsing the OAT experience, we recommend that you allot the default time to take the test. At any time during the test, you can click on the “REVIEW” button and click on “END” if you want to submit your answers for your review and view your answers.
How do I watch the video explanations to the test questions?
There are video explanations for every question in the Science, Reading, Math and Physics sections. After you take an exam, you will be able to view them.
How are my exam scores tabulated?
The grading rubric for the Natural Sciences, Reading Comprehension and Quantitative Reasoning and Physics sections are based on the scale that is provided on the American Dental Association page. Our software will enable you to compare how you performed on each test relative to other students across the world.
What is the correlation of my practice scores vs real test?
We do NOT collect any of your practice examination scores on CrackOAT. Therefore, we cannot make any direct correlations. What we can say is that over the past decade, the students that have prepared for the OAT after incorporating CrackOAT into their preparation regimen have achieved stellar scores. They often report back to us with great testimonials praising us for CrackOAT after they have taken the Optometry Admission Test. Historically, CrackOAT has been one of the best predictors of your actual Optometry Admission Test. Our questions tend to fall more on the rigorous side and students have tended to score equivalent or one or two points higher on the actual exam, but this can vary depending on numerous factors. Our mantra at CrackOAT is even if we can get 1 or 2 more questions correct on any given section, you're a winner. The extra effort is often what separates you from dropping you down one score level or moving you up into the next score level.
