What’s on a MAT Transcript?

To see a visual of what’s on a MAT transcript, I recommend going to the MAT candidate information booklet. Page 13 of the booklet displays, and describes, exactly what will be sent out to your schools.

MAT Transcript

Your MAT transcript is similar to the score report you’ll receive and will contain similar information.

First, there will be an MAT scaled score between 200-600. When you took the exam, you would have received an unofficial scaled score. Typically, the official score is the same as the unofficial you received previously, but it is possible for your score to go up or down slightly. The transcript score will, of course, match what is on your official score report.

Next is your MAT percentile rank. Your school will actually be receiving two percentile ranks: one that compares you to peers within your specific major, and one that compares you to the entire group of test takers.

The rest of the transcript is pretty straight forward. It will show your name and the date on which you took the exam The transcript will also show the total number of times you have taken the MAT exam in the last 5 years and the score you achieved on each of those separate attempts. This a bit different than the score report which only shows the number of attempts.

Sending Transcripts

On the day you take the exam, you will be able to request that your transcripts be sent free of charge to three schools. Additional transcripts can be requested for a fee of $25 each. Given that additional transcripts require a fee, be sure to correctly enter the information for your three free schools. You are actually allowed to bring a piece of paper with the appropriate school information into the test center on exam day.

If at the end of your MAT exam you choose the “no score” option, no transcripts will be sent out. Furthermore, the score will be completely erased as if you had never taken the exam on that date. Only choose this option if you are absolutely certain you do not want your exam scored. There is no way to retrieve this information if the score is canceled.
