How to withdraw your MCCQE Part I application

If you are certain you no longer want to take the MCCQE Part I, you may request to withdraw your application. There are different steps to follow depending on whether or not you have already scheduled your MCCQE Part I appointment.

If you have not yet scheduled your MCCQE Part I appointment with Prometric

If you have not booked your exam appointment, you can withdraw your MCCQE Part I application by submitting a request through your physiciansapply.ca account:

  1. Click on Examinations in the left panel.
  2. 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 15 days to process your request once it has been submitted.

If you have already scheduled your MCCQE Part I appointment with Prometric

You must contact Prometric directly to cancel your appointment. See how to schedule your MCCQE Part I exam appointment for more details.

If you cancel within less than 120 hours (five days) before your scheduled exam appointment, you must also submit an exam withdrawal request through your physiciansapply.ca account by following the steps described above.

Getting a refund of your MCCQE Part I application fee

You will receive a partial refund only if you cancel your MCCQE Part I appointment with Prometric within 120 hours (five days) or more before your scheduled exam appointment. If you cancel with less than five days’ notice of your exam appointment, 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 MCCQE Part I application before scheduling an exam appointment with Prometric.

If you are eligible for a refund, your MCCQE Part I application fee will be returned to the credit card used at the time of payment, otherwise a credit will be applied to your account. The  examination withdrawal fee will apply.

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.
