Preparatory product discounts to support MCCQE Part I candidates

June 3, 2024

The Medical Council of Canada (MCC)’s current offering of preparatory products will be expired following the October/November 2024 exam session. A new Preparatory Examination (PE) and a new PE-Lite will be available in early December 2024 for purchase, and the new products will align with the shortened Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) Part I.

Given the approaching expiry date of November 29, the promised 6-month access period to questions, answers and rationales within the PE and PE-Lite is no longer possible. To support candidates through this transitional period, the PE and the PE-Lite are now discounted.

The PE and the PE-Lite are now discounted

The PE can now be purchased for $475 (a discount of $55), and the PE-Lite can now be purchased for $295 (a discount of $35). The discount will automatically be applied within the Practice Test Portal.

The discount extends to the full-length PE and both available PE-Lite forms, when purchased by individual candidates. The Multiple-Choice Question (MCQ) practice tests, and the Clinical Decision-Making (CDM) practice tests are not discounted. The MCC is not crediting or refunding purchases made prior to June 3, 2024.

We wish you the best in your preparation for the MCCQE Part I.

About the MCC’s preparatory products

The PE-Lite closely replicates the experience of the MCCQE Part I and offers all the same features as the full-length Preparatory Examination (PE), but with half the questions. This product allows you to test your knowledge with 105 MCQs and 19 CDM cases, as well as providing you with question-level feedback, including the correct answer(s), a detailed rationale and references.
