NCAS does not utilize a pass/fail system. Instead, the NCAS Performance Report has been designed to indicate a candidate's competency strengths and gaps. NCAS measures behaviours and competencies against those that a Canadian-educated health practitioner is expected to demonstrate upon entry to practice in relevant provincial jurisdictions.
It is important to note that you will not receive a separate report for the CBA and SLA. NCAS prepares a single Performance Report that blends the results of all of the components of your professional assessment.
Please click here for detailed information on how to interpret your NCAS Performance Report.
The following are sample performance report templates for each profession:
NCAS checks assessment scores carefully before we release your Performance Report. If you think your Performance Report does not reflect how you performed during the assessment, you can request a reconsideration of your SLA results. Please note that we do not allow reconsideration of the CBA results. If you encountered an incident while taking the CBA that requires review, you must contact us within three business days of your CBA to resolve.
Once you request a reconsideration of your SLA, assessors who did not score your original assessment view the recorded videos of your SLA scenarios to confirm that we scored all the skills you demonstrated. We then issue you a new Performance Report that combines your original CBA scores and your final SLA scores. You can request only one reconsideration; all reconsideration results are final.
A CAN $350 fee will apply. This fee covers the administrative costs and assessor time involved in your reconsideration.
To request a reconsideration, please complete this form and submit it to email@example.com (for British Columbian candidates) or firstname.lastname@example.org (for Maritime Canada candidates) within 15 days of receiving your Performance Report. We cannot conduct reconsiderations after this 15-day period has passed. Typically, it takes NCAS 21 days to complete a reconsideration from the requested date.
