About the MAT Exam

The Miller Analogies Test is required for admission by some graduate schools. The MAT is considered a measure of high-level cognitive function and measures an individual's logical and analytical reasoning through the use of partial analogies. The MAT requires a broad knowledge of Western culture covering science, music, literature, philosophy, mathematics, art, and history. Success on the MAT requires a nuanced and cultivated vocabulary. See the Miller Analogies web page for more information.
