Last revised: 10 May 2022

The RACGP has two entry assessments:

  1. Candidate Assessment and Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT) – a multiple choice and ranking question format, computer-based test that assesses candidates’ readiness to undertake the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program
  2. Practice Experience Program Entry Assessment (PEPEA) – a multiple choice, computer-based test, which assesses candidates’ readiness to undertake the Practice Experience Program (PEP) – Standard Stream.

Candidates must obtain a minimum standard in the CAAKT in order to proceed to the next stage of the AGPT Program selection process, which is Regional Training Organisation (RTO) interview. For further information regarding this process, please read the RACGP Australian General Practice Training Program Selection Policy and refer to the AGPT 'Application and selection process' webpage.

Candidates must obtain a minimum standard in the PEPEA in order to be deemed eligible to proceed to the next stage of the PEP process. For further information regarding this process, please read the Practice Experience Program – Standard Stream Entry Policy and refer to the RACGP 'About the PEP' webpage.
