Testing Program

Miller Analogies Test

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a computer-based test that consists of 120 analogies to answer in 60 minutes. You are not penalized for wrong answers; therefore, your scores are based on the number of items you answer correctly. You and the schools or institutions you have selected should receive your scores approximately 10-15 business days after Pearson receives your test. You will also receive an unofficial score report upon completion of your test at the Test Center.

You may not leave the room during the test for any reason. If you do leave the room, your test will not be scored and monies will not be refunded.

Candidates Requesting Accommodations

Candidates requesting accommodations should contact the Coordinator for Testing Program as soon as possible to discuss their request prior to scheduling any test.

Special technology is available for those candidates with documented disabilities requiring accommodations.

Please refer to under "Disability Accommodation" to access a printable Accommodations Request Form and procedural information. If you have any questions about requesting an accommodation after reviewing the MAT website, email or call MAT Customer Relations (see "MAT Customer Relations") or Winthrop University's Coordinator for Testing Program.

The Test Center is located at 312 Bancroft Hall. Please arrive ten minutes before your scheduled appointment.

  • If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment time, you will not be allowed to take the exam and you will forfeit any fees.
  • You may reschedule your appointment upon payment of additional fees.

Bring two forms of current identification.

  • Your primary ID must be government-issued and contain both your photo and signature. Acceptable forms of primary ID include a driver's license or government-issued identification card or passport.
  • The secondary ID is not required to have your photo or signature. Acceptable forms of secondary ID include credit card, library card, or utility bill with your name and address appearing exactly as on your primary form of ID. We recommend you bring several forms of ID with you.

Because temperatures vary in the testing rooms, you may want to dress in layers.
