A candidate who believes that environmental or personal health concerns suffered during the course of an examination session may significantly affect his/her results, must immediately communicate such concerns to the staff on site at the examination session in question AND submit a written report detailing the incident to the Executive Director of the MCC within one (1) week following the examination. Any intervention, if appropriate, is possible only if notice of the concern is presented by the candidate in this manner.
Results are confirmed by the MCC Central Examination Committee (CEC), which meets the third week of June (for the spring administration) and of December (for the fall administration). Candidates will be notified of their results, by mail, the week following these meetings. However, it is anticipated that candidates will be able to check their own pass/fail exam result on the MCC Website. The results will be posted shortly after they are confirmed by the CEC. The exact date the results are to be posted will also be announced on the Website. The declaration on the back of the QE Part I application form includes a statement authorizing the MCC to allow you access to your (pass/fail) result on the Website, while ensuring reasonable security measures. FOR REASONS OF CONFIDENTIALITY, RESULTS CANNOT BE GIVEN VERBALLY OR BY FAX.
The MCC does not limit the number of times a candidate may take the QE Part I. However, for IMGs, a valid pass standing on the MCC Evaluating Examination (MCCEE), obtained within the past five (5) years, remains a requirement for eligibility to the QE Part I. If the five-year validity on the MCCEE has expired, a formal request for an extension must be submitted to the MCC with supporting proof of postgraduate clinical training, issued by the university or hospital and signed by the Dean or program director.
Requests for a rescore will be accepted up to three (3) months following an examination date upon receipt of a written request and a certified cheque, bank draft or money order for $100.00 CDN ($65.00 US). It should be noted, however, that all standings are verified and confirmed individually before being sent to candidates.
Candidates who wish to be present and/or have a duly appointed representative present during the rescore must submit a written request accompanied by a certified cheque, bank draft or money order for $300.00 CDN ($195.00 US). An appointment, in Ottawa, for a mutually agreeable time will then be arranged.
