Last revised: 01 Sep 2023


The Candidate Assessment and Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT) is the national entry assessment used to determine a candidate’s readiness to undertake the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.

The CAAKT is based on the RACGP domains of general practice and focuses on the knowledge, skills and attributes related to becoming a general practitioner (GP). It’s a computer-based test administered by an external test provider (Pearson VUE) and held at designated test centres in Australian capital cities and some regional cities.

The CAAKT comprises 60 knowledge test (KT) questions and 20 situational judgement test (SJT) questions. Candidates who achieve the required standard in the CAAKT will progress to the next stage of selection for the AGPT program and may be allocated to an interview in line with their CAAKT score, cohort ranking and stated preferences for training region and stream.
