The RACGP exams consist of three components. The written parts are the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) which is a multiple choice paper and the Key Feature Problems (KFP) test which is a short answer test of clinical reasoning. The third part is an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).
Many registrars will form a study group at least six and preferably twelve months before they sit the exam. In addition, there are pre-exam preparation course run by the RACGP and EV runs a trial OSCE twice a year. Many supervisors in practice will spend some of the teaching time helping their registrar prepare for the exams.
