The benefit of Ace Question Bank

Question bank

It is critical to go through the MCC objective when preparing for the MCCQE part 1 exam. The MCC’s Objectives for Qualifying Examinations outline the qualities that are required of medical graduates and international medical graduates (IMGs) entering residency. The objectives serve as a guide for us as we develop Ace Qbank questions. The question bank contains over 2000+ high-yield questions which will adequately prepare you for the MCCQE1 exam.

Algorithm, summary table

Ace Qbank includes flow chart approaches to diagnostic and treatment that can significantly help in the MCCQE part 1 exam during clinical decision-making and eliminate indecision. Summary tables are designed for your convenience. Summary tables enable quick and easy readability across topics represented in rows and columns, delivering a significant quantity of information on the topic and serving as the ideal last-minute review resource for the MCCQE1 exam.

Short summary point

Summary points are included to provide a quick overview of the discussed topic. Summary points are kept brief, right to the point, and highlight the main points to emphasize what is important and what you should concentrate on for the MCCQE1 exam.

Time / Tutor mode

As you prepare for the MCCQE1 exam, Ace Qbank will assist you in going beyond simply memorizing facts to applying information into clinical situations and solving problems using your critical thinking. Based on your preferred study method, the Time/Tutor modes are designed to present simulated situations inside a supportive environment where you can securely apply critical thinking and make clinical decisions.

Time mode is a self-administered evaluation program that focuses on competency and gives immediate feedback. It allows you to measure your test-taking ability and practice in a testing environment by constructing question blocks based on specific parameters (e.g., number of questions, clinical specialty (disciplines), and parameters reflective of the MCCQE1 Study). Your performance will be analyzed once you complete a test. Time mode analysis contains information such as the questions you answered incorrectly with explanations, the content areas you need to study more (the MCC objectives), and the time you spent answering each question (a unique feature for practicing time management).

Tutor mode is a self-administered program designed for self-paced learning of medical knowledge. The goal is to promote new learning or reinforce previous learning rather than assessing your understanding, skills, and abilities. In the Tutor mode, you create question blocks based on specific parameters (e.g., number of questions, clinical specialty (disciplines), and parameters reflective of the MCCQE1 Study). However, unlike Time mode, you are not timed; after selecting an option that you believe is the correct answer, the program provides immediate feedback regarding the correctness of choice. The program is designed to provide an explanation for the correct and wrong answers.

MCCQE1 exam Blueprint

A blueprint for the MCCQE part 1 exam consists of two major categories, Dimensions of care, which covers medical care across a spectrum, and Physician activities, which reflects a physician’s practice and behavior. Each candidate will be evaluated based on these two broad categories on the MCCQE1 exam

Dimensions of care

  • Psychosocial Aspects
  • Health Promotion & Prevention
  • Chronic
  • Acute

Physician activities

  • Professional Behaviours
  • Communication
  • Management
  • Assessment/ Diagnosis

Studying for the board examination has always been challenging. The most challenging aspects in studying for the MCCQE1 exam are in mastering all the dimensions of care and in understanding what is expected of a physician in various situations like:

  • How to prevent certain medical conditions?
  • How to prevent secondary manifestations of them?
  • What are the acute care issues of certain diseases?
  • How to treat new patients with certain diseases?
  • How to diagnose & manage?

Mastering the MCC blueprint for the MCCQE1 exam and using the MCC objectives for preparation shortens the time required to prepare for the exam and improves performance. As a result, Ace Qbank designed questions based on the MCC objectives and includes dimensions of care and physician activities to help you structure your study in terms of the MCC blueprint, which will help you prepare for and perform better on the MCCQE1 exam.
