About MockCasper

Your #1 tool to prepare for McMaster CASPer

MockCasper provides web-based simulations to help medical school applicants prepare for the real CASPer - the Computer-based Assessment for Sampling Personal characteristics that all applicants to the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University are required to complete as part of the selection process.

The MockCasper simulations have been developed to be as similar to the real CASPer in content and format as possible based on our understanding and experiences as medical students, combined with information publicly available.
