Performance Standard

The overall standard of the examination will be the level of attainment of medical knowledge, clinical skills and attitudes which is required of newly qualified graduates of Australian Medical Schools who are about to commence intern training.

A candidate's result in the MCQ examination will be determined on the basis of the overall result in the 200 scored questions and the score of correct responses obtained in the identified "key issues" questions, which will be part of the 200 scored questions.

In order to pass the MCQ examination, a candidate will be required to obtain 50% or better correct in the 200 questions that are scored, and not less than 65% correct in the "key issues" questions. A candidate must complete both papers to obtain an overall score and satisfy the requirements of the MCQ examination.
