A letter or e-mail will be sent to applicants approximately two to five (2 to 5) weeks after receipt of the application. The letter will advise either that the application has been accepted as COMPLETE, or that it is INCOMPLETE and the reasons why. Where possible, “incomplete” candidates will be notified by both mail and e-mail in order to expedite the process. An applicant cannot be registered for an examination session until his/her application is complete. The official receipt sent to acknowledge processing of a candidate’s payment does NOT signify acceptance for the examination.
PLEASE NOTE: The status of an application may be verified on the MCC Website (http://www.mcc.ca/english/ examinations/ evaluating_status.html). Applicants must have either their candidate code number (repeat applicants) or the personal password provided on their Registration and Payment Form (first-time applicants) to use the MCC Online service. New (first time) applications are entered as soon as they are received and will show a status of “To Be Credentialed”. This means that the application has been received and the fee processed, however the documents have not yet been reviewed. Please continue to monitor the online application status service. Many applications are received close to the deadline date, and it may take longer to credential the applications at this time.
An Entrance Card and instructions providing the address of the center and arrival time for the examination will be mailed to accepted candidates for an examination session approximately eight (8) weeks before the examination (see the 2005 Evaluating Examination Schedule for specific dates). It is most important that the MCC be kept informed of any address changes, particularly before the mailing of Entrance Card packages and result letters.
Prior to attending the examination, candidates should carefully read the instruction sheet and site-specific information sent with the Entrance Card. The signed Entrance Card must be brought to the examination, presented at registration and left on the candidate’s desk, in full view, during the entire examination. It must be surrendered to the supervisory staff at the end of the afternoon session. Please note that family or friends must not accompany a candidate to the examination center, as space is provided only for candidates and staff. Candidates are not allowed to bring cell phones or other electronic communication devices with them to the examination hall.
After entering the examination hall, a candidate is not permitted to leave before completing that session, unless accompanied by a member of the supervisory staff. No outside contact is allowed during the examination session.
If a candidate appears to be giving or receiving information during the examination, the Deputy Registrar in charge of the examination is authorized to issue a warning notice, to change the candidate's location in the examination hall or to immediately terminate the examination for persons receiving or giving information. The Deputy Registrar will make a full report of all such occurrences to the Executive Director of the MCC, which may lead to serious consequences, including, but not limited to, being barred from future MCC examinations.
At the end of each examination session, candidates must return all examination material with their answer sheets to members of the supervisory staff. No reproduction of the booklet, in whole or in part, is permitted. All Examination Materials (including the questions comprising this examination) are the property of the Medical Council of Canada and are protected by copyright. Any unauthorized reproduction or dissemination of the Examination Materials in whole or in part is strictly prohibited. The Declaration portion of the Application Form provides a statement that candidates agree that in consideration of the Medical Council of Canada disclosing these Examination Materials to them, they shall (i) use the Examination Materials solely for the purpose of completing this examination and (ii) not disseminate or reveal to others the Examination Material or the contents thereof. The MCC may take disciplinary measures and legal remedies against any candidate or others who violate these provisions. A candidate’s signature on the Declaration indicates that they understand and agree to be bound by the terms set out in the Declaration.
