If you are certain you no longer want to take the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I, you may request to withdraw your application. There are different steps to follow depending on whether you have already scheduled your MCCQE Part I appointment with Prometric.
Once you have submitted your withdrawal request, it will be processed within 15 business days. If your withdrawal request is received during a MCCQE Part I session, it may only be processed after the last day of the session.
If you have not scheduled your exam appointment, you can withdraw your MCCQE Part I application by submitting a request through your physiciansapply.ca account:
If you have already scheduled your exam appointment, you must first cancel your appointment directly with Prometric.
If you cancel more than 120 hours (5 days) before your scheduled exam appointment, you must also withdraw your exam application through your physiciansapply.ca account:
If you cancel fewer than 120 hours (5 days) before your scheduled exam appointment, your will not be able to withdraw your exam application and you will be marked as absent.
You will forfeit your full application fee if you cancel your MCCQE Part I appointment with Prometric with fewer than 120 hours before your exam or if you are absent on the day of your exam.
If, due to extenuating circumstances, you need to cancel within 120 hours of your appointment or are absent for your appointment, you may be eligible for a partial refund. To request a partial refund, send supporting documentation of these circumstances to the MCC ([email protected]) for review.
If your partial refund request is approved, the MCCQE Part I application fee minus the examination withdrawal fee will be returned to the credit card used at the time of payment, otherwise a credit will be applied to your physiciansapply.ca account.
