NCMHCE New Format Information
After many years of using the prior NCMHCE format, the NBCC has now switched to its 'New Format' for the exam.
Here are the most significant changes:
- The new format is a longer exam, containing 11 case studies in 225 minutes.
- Each case study contains a client narrative (which includes the diagnosis) followed by 13 multiple-choice questions. Each question has four answer choices of which only one is correct.
- Your score will be based on how many correct answers you select. The exam has 143 total questions, but only 100 count towards your score. The remaining 43 questions are used for 'field testing'.
- You are not penalized for wrong answers, so answer every question, even if you are guessing.
Frequently Asked Questions
What study program does ClinicalExamWorkshop.com have for the NCMHCE?
This exam is notorious for being a highly subjective test. Without a clear understanding of the exam's bias, it is very easy to fail. I fully explain how to 'Think Like the Test' in my NCMHCE study program so that you can give the exam the sorts of answers that it is looking for. My program has been fully updated for the New Format exam. It includes teaching videos, study documents and over 12 hours of online practice exams that are very similar to the real test.
If I studied in the past for the prior format, will that be 'good enough' for the new format?
The prior format and new format are very different exams. You will need to study my new format program for the new format exam.
