Candidate Assessment and Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT)

The Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program is the leading training program for medical graduates wishing to pursue a career in general practice in Australia. There are three main phases in the RACGP AGPT selection process, one of which is undertaking the Candidate Assessment and Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT).

The CAAKT consists of two types of questions: Knowledge Test questions and Situational Judgement Test questions. Candidates should book their CAAKT as soon as possible to secure their preferred location. Candidates can select to undertake their assessment in any state or territory, subject to availability, when they book online. Any associated travel costs are the responsibility of the candidate.

Only candidates who have applied for the AGPT Program through the RACGP and been deemed eligible to sit the CAAKT, are able to sit this test.

Practice Experience Program Entrance Assessment (PEPEA)

The Practice Experience Program Entrance Assessment (PEPEA) is designed to assess the suitability of candidates seeking to participate in the Practice Experience Program (PEP), a self-directed educational support program for non-vocationally registered doctors. The PEPEA consists of two question types - Applied Knowledge Test questions and Situational Judgement Test questions. Candidates are strongly advised to schedule their PEPEA as soon as possible to secure a placement in their preferred location. Candidates can elect to undertake their assessment in any state or territory, subject to availability, when they book online. Any associated travel costs are the responsibility of the candidate.

Only candidates who have applied for the PEP through the RACGP and been deemed eligible to sit the PEPEA, are able to undertake this assessment.
