Alternate Clinical Evaluation BC (ACEBC) Update

The College partners with the UBC Department of Physical Therapy to administer the ACEBC entry-to-practice exam four times a year. UBC registers candidates, creates the exam content per the PCE Blueprint 2018, recruits and trains examiners and standardized patients, and administers the exam. The College supports UBC in determining eligibility for the exam, coordinates the psychometric analysis of the data, and convenes the Standards Confirmation Panel before issuing individual results to candidates.

The ACEBC was administered four times between June 2021 and June 2022 in a virtual format for 575 candidates. Since October 2022, it has occurred eight times in an in-person format for 754 candidates. The exam runs four times yearly: February, May, August, and November.
