Assessments and Examinations Candidate Handbook

Part 2: RACGP Fellowship examinations


Download chapter

Last revised: 20 Mar 2024


The RACGP Fellowship exams assess a candidate’s competency for unsupervised general practice anywhere in Australia.

There are three Fellowship exams and each has a unique and targeted approach to assessing a candidate’s knowledge and ability:

  • Applied Knowledge Test (AKT). The AKT is designed to test the application of knowledge in the clinical context of Australian general practice, rather than just knowledge per se. The AKT comprises 150 multiple-choice questions.
  • Key Feature Problem (KFP). The KFP is designed to assess clinical decision making and clinical reasoning in practice. It comprises 26 cases, each of which is composed of short-answer and selection-list questions.
  • Clinical Competency Exam (CCE). The CCE is an online real-time assessment of the candidate by multiple examiners across nine clinical cases (four case discussions and five clinical encounters).

For more information about each exam, including format, preparation, development, standard setting and results, refer to the Examination guide.
