Retaking the Ontario Clinical Sciences or Ontario Clinical (Practical) Exam
A candidate who fails an examination on the first attempt can apply to re-take it a second time. After a second failure, the candidate must complete remediation as directed by the Registration Committee before a third and final attempt. An exam candidate who fails on the third attempt is not eligible to continue in the examination process without first completing an additional program of study in naturopathic medicine.
To retake the Ontario Clinical Sciences or the Ontario Clinical (practical) Exams candidates must:
Submit a new copy of their valid, photo identification (a copy of one’s identification must be submitted prior to any attempt at the Ontario Clinical Sciences Exam);
Ensure the residential address and contact information listed on their College profile is still correct and, if not, has been appropriately updated;
Complete the Online Exam Registration process, including payment of the applicable fee(s); and
Submit any additional information (e.g., exam accommodation requests with supporting documentation) by the registration deadline for the exam they wish to sit.
