Exam Format and Delivery

The OSCE will consist of six (6) long stations of 20 minutes each (inclusive of 5 mins reading time).

Training trajectory

Both successful and unsuccessful outcomes for this examination will be counted towards a candidate's trajectory.

Special Consideration Requests

Applicants requesting special consideration to sit any of the summative assessments must apply in writing to the Committee for Examinations (CFE), in accordance with the Special Considerations Policy (18.2). 

Please note: The CFE has received many untimely requests for Special Consideration involving pre-existing medical conditions after the application closing date. Late applications do have a disruptive effect on the College’s capacity to delivery exams. Please consider now if you have a known condition that will require an adjustment to the standard delivery of an exam in line with the special consideration policy. 

Applicants who have a pre-existing medical condition are reminded that they should make an application for Special Consideration if they have not already done so. This includes common conditions that require items such as inhalers, insulin pumps and sustenance, visual magnifiers, and eye drops.

Applicants who are pregnant may require special consideration with respect to access to bathroom facilities and the need to eat to prevent nausea.

Proof of identity

On the day of the exam, you may be asked to provide valid identification documents (i.e. driver’s licence or passport) before you can access the online exam materials. Specific details on exam day registration process will be provided prior to the exam.

Incident reports

Incident reports from the examination will be available at the conclusion of the exam, and must be submitted within five (5) working days from the examination date.

A copy of the candidate’s results will be sent to their Director of Training and/or Director of Advanced Training where applicable and will also be made available via MyRANZCP.


The College reserves the right to cancel the OSCE on the advice of the Australian and New Zealand Health Authorities in relation to COVID-19. If the OSCE does not proceed for COVID-19 related reasons a full refund will be provided.
