Cheating disrupts RACGP exams

1 minute read

The college says it has already taken steps to minimise the number of applicants affected by the incident.

A handful of would-be GPs in training have had to reschedule their RACGP multiple mini interview (MMI) exams after one candidate leaked questions online.  

The exam involves a series of 10-minute Zoom interviews over two hours. 

MMIs are part of the selection process for doctors looking to enter GP specialty training and are completely separate from the high-stakes fellowship exams.  

This round of MMIs started on Monday and was planned to run until Wednesday 5 June. There were five two-hour timeslots each day, starting at 9am and ending at 5pm.  

Around 2000 medical graduates apply for a GP training place each year, usually across two intakes. 

The leaked exam questions were posted online at around 1pm on Thursday and were identified by the college within the hour.  

It appears that only the 3pm and 5pm Thursday cohort – 35 people in total – were affected.  

Interviews scheduled for this morning onward will go ahead as planned, but with new questions.
