This notice is to advise that the RACGP has published a new policy, the Fellowship Exam Attempts Policy, which places limits on the number of exam attempts candidates will be permitted.
The RACGP will implement a fixed number of attempts to pass the Fellowship exams. Previously, no cap has been placed on the number of attempts candidates have been permitted. This has been despite RACGP data illustrating that over the last ten cycles, success in RACGP exams diminishes significantly in excess of six attempts at the same exam. In addition, this decision aligns the RACGP with other specialist medical colleges, although the number of attempts afforded by the RACGP remains higher than other colleges.
Permitting unlimited exam attempts has serious implications for patient and community safety. It is with this in mind that the RACGP has determined that from 1 January 2019, candidates will be permitted a maximum of six attempts at each Fellowship exam segment.
The policy can be accessed here.
