How to purchase MCC preparatory products in bulk for your students.

Organizations can purchase Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I preparatory products in bulk on behalf of their candidates. Preparatory products help candidates test their knowledge as well as get familiar with the MCCQE Part I format and question types. Organizations across Canada and internationally have built the preparatory products into their curriculum to help their candidates prepare for the MCCQE Part I.

Organizations purchasing in bulk for their candidates receive:

  • A discount on preparatory products of $10 per Multiple-Choice Question (MCQ) Practice Test, $10 per Clinical Decision-Making (CDM) Practice Tests, $50 per Preparatory Examination (PE) and $30 per PE-Lite
  • Access codes for all preparatory products purchased, which can be assigned from your Practice Test Portal profile to candidates for them to access and complete their Practice Test or PE
  • Access to overall, test administrations and individual test results for your organization to help administrators assess candidate preparedness for the MCCQE Part I
