Exam overview

You are required to complete three summative assessments as part of RACGP’s requirements for fellowship. The RACGP is responsible for developing and running your summative assessments.

The examinations assess your competency for unsupervised general practice anywhere in Australia and any aspect of the RACGP curriculum can be assessed. The demographics and case mix are drawn from A decade of Australian general practice activity 2006-07 to 2015-16 (BEACH data).

There are three exam segments:

  • Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) – multiple choice questions that assesses the application of knowledge in a clinical context.
  • Key Feature Problem (KFP) – short answer questions that assess clinical reasoning in clinical practice.
  • Clinical Competency Exam (CCE) – a mix of remote testing via Zoom for case based discussions and face-to-face simulated clinical encounters at a centralised hub. It aims to assess how a registrar integrates their applied knowledge, clinical reasoning and communication skills when presented with a range of clinical scenarios.
