If you are certain you no longer want to take the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE), you may request to withdraw your application. There are different steps to follow depending on whether or not you have already scheduled your MCCEE appointment.
If you have not yet scheduled your MCCEE appointment with Prometric
If you have not booked your exam appointment, you can withdraw your MCCEE application by submitting a request through your physiciansapply.ca account:
- Click on Examinations in the left panel.
- Click on Withdraw from an exam at the bottom of the centre panel and follow the steps provided.
Please note that it can take up to 20 days to process your request once it has been submitted.
If you have already scheduled your MCCEE appointment with Prometric
You must contact Prometric directly to cancel your appointment. (See how to schedule your MCCEE appointment for more details.)
If you cancel at least 120 hours (five days) before your scheduled examination date, you must also submit an exam withdrawal request through your physiciansapply.ca account by following the steps described above.
Getting a refund of your MCCEE application fee
You will receive a partial refund only if you cancel your MCCEE appointment with Prometric more than 120 hours (five days) before your scheduled examination date. If you cancel with less than five days’ notice or are absent on the day of the exam, your application fee cannot be refunded. (You will also receive a partial refund if you withdraw your MCCEE application before scheduling an exam appointment with Prometric.)
If you are eligible for a refund, your MCCEE application fee will be returned to your physiciansapply.ca account minus an administrative fee to process the withdrawal. These funds will remain in your account for future use.
Any funds in your account that are not used for three full calendar years will be forfeited as of December 31 of the third full calendar year.
Note: We are pleased to announce a more streamlined assessment process for international medical graduates and international medical students. Starting in 2019, we will be delivering the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I in Canada and internationally in over 80 countries, up to five times per year. Once the MCCQE Part I is offered internationally, we will be phasing out the MCCEE. November 2018 will be the last session. You will have until mid-November 2018 to take the MCCEE.
