Exam delivery information


The 2022.2 KFP will be delivered face-to-face in exam venues in a paper format. Further information will be provided to enrolled candidates via email closer to the exam date.


Following the success of the AssessGP trials series, the 2022.2 AKT will be delivered face-to-face in exam venues in an online (computer-based) format via the AssessGP platform. Further information will be provided to enrolled candidates via email closer to the exam date.


The 2022.2 KFP will be held on Friday 15 July and the 2022.2 AKT will be held on Saturday 16 July. Exam timing will be provided to enrolled candidates via email closer to the exam dates.


The 2022.2 KFP and AKT will be held in COVID-safe venues in capital cities and a limited number of regional locations. Exam locations for the 2022.2 KFP and AKT are now listed on the RACGP website.

You will be allocated to the closest available exam venue based on your preferred address and date of enrolment. Some venues can only accommodate a set number of candidates and numbers will be capped accordingly. If your closest exam venue reaches capacity, you will be allocated to the next closest available venue. No specific venue allocation is guaranteed or should be presumed before we confirm with you.


All enrolled candidates will receive an exam venue confirmation email approximately four weeks before the exam. You are advised to wait until your venue has been confirmed before making travel arrangements.


No. Unfortunately, we are unable to change your exam venue once you have received your confirmed venue allocation. You should nominate whether you want to be allocated to a venue nearer your home or practice when you are completing your enrolment. You will be able to choose to be allocated based on either your home or practice address.


Further information, including a practice exam, will be provided to enrolled candidates closer to the exam date. You will only receive the practice exam for the exam you are enrolled in. The practice exam will be provided in the format of each exam segment – paper for the KFP and online for the AKT.


Refer to the Assessments and Examinations Special Arrangements Policy and the RACGP Examinations Special Arrangements Guidance Document.

The deadline for special arrangements applications is 20 business days prior to the scheduled exam date. Any special arrangements requests for the KFP exam must be received by Friday 17 June 2022. Any special arrangements requests for the AKT exam must be received by Monday 20 June 2022.


RACGP state faculties will be providing a limited number of online workshops that will assist candidates with their preparation for the KFP exam. You can find more information and register to attend the KFP pre-exam workshops on the RACGP website.

Enrolment, eligibility and candidacy


No. Enrolments for the 2022.2 KFP and AKT exams close at midnight (AEST) on Sunday 8 May 2022. We cannot accept enrolment requests after this date.


Refer to Part 2: RACGP Fellowship Examinations, Section 3 Withdrawing from an examination of the Assessments and Examinations Candidate Handbook.

If you request to withdraw from the KFP by Friday 17 June 2022, or the AKT by Monday 20 June 2022, you will receive a refund of the enrolment fee, minus a $100 withdrawal fee per exam segment.

If you request to withdraw after these dates (less than 20 business days before the scheduled exam date), you will not receive a fee refund.


Check your eligibility criteria on the policy framework.

The RACGP audits all exam enrolments to ensure candidates are eligible to sit the Fellowship examinations and provides enrolment information to all RTOs for the purposes of validating eligibility. If you are found to not meet the eligibility requirements, you will be automatically withdrawn from the exam segment and will be subject to a $100 withdrawal fee per exam segment.

Remember, you must tell us of any restrictions, conditions, suspensions and/or undertakings on your medical registration as soon as possible. This will help us support you appropriately on your journey to Fellowship.


Subject to the limitations of the Fellowship Exam Attempts Policy, you can suspend your candidacy in any semester in which you do not sit an exam. If you sit the 2022.2 KFP, the 2022.2 AKT, or the 2022.2 CCE, you cannot suspend the 2022.2 semester.
