What is the difference between the courses for the qualifying and evaluating exams?

The evaluating exam is usually for overseas students who need to be evaluated prior to proceeding to the the qualifying exam. This is due to the lack of equivalency between a Pharmacy degree in say Europe in comparison to Canada. The difference between our courses is the same as the difference in the syllabus between the two exams. We have made all our courses here at PEBCexam.com to rigorously follow the syllabuses set out by the examining board who create the actual exam.
