What if I arrive late for the Written Component of the PCE?

Any candidate who arrives 15 minutes late for the Written Component of the PCE has to sign a Candidate Waiver form that they were offered an opportunity to withdraw from the exam due to late arrival. The candidate takes full responsibility for their choice to continue with the examination.

If a candidate signs the Candidate Waiver Form, the time the candidate started the exam will be marked by the proctor at the exam site. The candidate will not be given the full 4-hour exam. For example – If the exam is from 9.00 am to 1.00pm at an exam site and a candidate arrives at 9.15am and choses to sign the Candidate Waiver Form. The candidate’s exam will time out at 1.00pm.

The Candidate Waiver Form indicates that the candidate understands that the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR) and its computer based Partner, Yardstick Inc. take no responsibility for unforeseen circumstances that may arise as a result of this decision.

Effective January 1, 2016, candidates arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be permitted to take the exam as this disrupts candidates already in session. Candidates arriving more than 15 minutes late for a written exam will also forfeit their exam fee.
