    MCCEE HORROR stories

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,

    I talked to several people who took the MCEE and one of them actually 4 times until she passed. They are telling me of how difficult this exam is and that it is geared to make people fail since residencies are really hard to come by. Now these people have been out of school for a while and pracitsing doctors in their native land. Is that why they had a hard time? Is it going to be easier for a new img grad to pass it? Most people say that it is easier than the mCQ1.

    Any feedback is appreciated

    trust yourself

    MCCEE is an easy test since over 70% people pass (I assume you aim to pass). If you want to ace the exam, yes, it is difficult.

    Reply to MCCEE Enquiry

    Hi,

    I've recently taken the exam and passed it. I would advise you to go over previous exams questions to get an idea about the nature of the exam and the topics mostly tackled. Focus on Psychiatry, Obe/Gyne and Ethics as a lot of questions are taken from these subjects.

    Wish you the best of luck

    not true

    I passed the mccee recently. Its NOT a hard exam at all. I graduated 4 years ago and was totally out of touch with medicine for that time period. I studied 3 months and worked full time during that except for the last 6 weeks in which I studied only. I left out more than half or medicine and still passed. Concentrate on the smaller subjects like psychiatry, comm and gyne/obs because the questions are divided equally on this exam. You are a new img so you shouldnt have a problem at all.

    Good Luck

    That is encouraging

    Hello,

    Thank you for the replies, that sounds way more encouraging than the stories I heard, but are you sure that it's not you who is really really smart and not the test which is easy? I mean 3 month with a fulltime job is very impressing.

    Thanks,

    ...

    Question. What happens when you pass your MCCEEs. I've heard about grads getting residency in Manitoba and Nova Scotia, and now Ontario has opened up more spaces. So how does one go about getting residency in Canada? Do we have to live in Ontario for 2 yrs before we can apply for the IMG program? Because I'm not looking forward to flipping any more burgers

    alberta img

    I am not sure about Ontario since I live in Alberta. For the Alberta img program you need to reside in Alberta for at least a year. I will be applying for the program in August pending I pass the QE in May. I have been able to get a few observerships, I am hoping that will help me.
