Which MET is right for me?

MET is offered as a 2-skill or 4-skill test. You can take the digital version securely at a test center or at home. Before you schedule your test, make sure you know which MET best fits your needs. The 4-skill test is for applying to universities in the USA or other English-speaking countries. The 4-skill test can also be used for applying for a professional licensure (e.g., nursing or other healthcare practice). No matter the format, we make it easy to share your results with the accepting institution of your choice.
