Half of fellowship candidates fail latest KFP test
The results are in for the most feared exam in general practice — and it’s a case of deja vu, with almost half the candidates flunking.
Just 52% of the 1186 candidates passed the key feature problem (KFP) — a core part of the RACGP fellowship exams — in February.
The test has been controversial in recent years, partly because of the high failure rates and partly because some believe it does not adequately test clinical competency.
Some 57% passed last August’s exam, while in February last year the rate dipped to 44%.
