Medical Council of Canada



Application to the November 2018 session is now closed

Application to the MCCEE is now closed. The November 2018 session is the last session. International medical graduates and students will now be able to challenge the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I directly without first having to take the MCCEE.

While application is now closed, please note that some of the information on this web page may be of use to candidates whose applications have been accepted and who are now seeking to withdraw from the exam.

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. 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.
