Assessment format

The Candidate Assessment and Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT) is a computer-based test and features a mixture of knowledge test questions and situational judgement test questions. It’s based on the RACGP domains of general practice in the Curriculum and syllabus for Australian General Practice and focuses on the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to become a GP.

Assessment dates and locations

The CAAKT will be held in a test centre in a number of locations, including capital cities as well as major centres outside of capital cities. In some instances, the CAAKT may also be able to be attended overseas.

You’re only required to attend on one date. You should allow 2.5 hours to complete the CAAKT.

You’ll be sent instructions on how to book in for the CAAKT after your eligibility has been assessed.
