Tips and Do's and Don'ts

Please read the tips below before your centre’s scheduling start date (the table below is also available as a pdf).

 

STEPS TIPS and DO’s AND DON’Ts
Step 1
Log into your physiciansapply.ca account.
  • DO log into your account a few minutes before your centre’s scheduling start time to avoid delays
  • Once you click to LOG INDO expect a slight delay before gaining access to your account
  • Important: Your session could time out if you log in more than 20 minutes before your scheduling start time
Step 2
Click on Examinations on the left panel. 
  • The EXAMINATIONS panel will open
Step 3
Click on MCCQE Part I fall 2017.
  • Your current examination and its status will be displayed in the EXAMINATIONS panel
  • Click on MCCQE Part I fall 2017 to open the CURRENT EXAMINATION panel
Step 4
Wait for the SCHEDULE NOW button.
  • If you do not see the SCHEDULE NOW button, it is because the scheduling for your centre has not started yet
    • Please note that the start times are in Eastern Time (ET)
  • The SCHEDULE NOW button on the CURRENT EXAMINATION panel will appear ONLY when the countdown timer on the right panel runs out
  • DON’T click your browser’s refresh button as this may slow down your scheduling experience; instead, click on MCCQE Part I fall 2017 in the centre panel
  • Monitor the countdown timer within 20 minutes of your scheduling period
Step 5
Click on SCHEDULE NOW.
  • Once scheduling has started for your centre, the SCHEDULE NOW button will appear on the CURRENT EXAMINATION panel
  • Click on SCHEDULE NOW to schedule your date
Step 6
Click on the button next to your preferred date.
  • The SCHEDULE AN EXAMINATION DATE panel will be displayed
  • The dates listed will be those where spaces are still available at your assigned centre
  • If you do not see a date that had been published for your centre, it is because all spaces have been filled for that date
  • Click on the button next to your preferred date
  • Click on SCHEDULE DATE at the bottom right panel
Step 7
Wait for confirmation.
  • After you click on SCHEDULE DATE, you will not be able to change this date
  • A “Loading, please wait” message may appear on screen while the system processes your request
  • DON’T close your browser window and DON’T refresh the page
  • The length of time to wait may depend on how many other candidates are also scheduling at this time
  • Date requests are on a first-come, first-served basis, according to when you clicked the SCHEDULE DATE button
 Step 8
A confirmation will be displayed.
  • A confirmation of your scheduled centre, date, time and Exam PIN will appear on the CURRENT EXAMINATION panel
