    Wink australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Add your physio job on Physiobob.com
    Hi am an experienced community based uk physiotherapist who qualified in 1999 and have worked continuously in the NHS since. My partner who is not a physio has got a job in Australia and has recently left to work in QLD. I have applied to do my written exam in Sept 12 and desperately need to pass first time for the sake of my relationship!!

    Has anyone recently taken the exam or got any past papers.
    I know i will need to swot up on a few things that i have not covered since qualifying / basic grade rotations and no longer utilise in my later career eg paediatrics, obs and gynae, acute respiratory in patients. Any help advise gratefully received.

    many thanks

    Hi Katja, no I did not get a reply. I am just starting to update in neuro and respiratory which I do not regularly work in. Have you managed to find out anything? Jo

    Re: australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Hi Katja and Jo,
    I too am sitting the written exam in March 2013 in the UK. I only graduated this summer and have been working in a private MSK outpatients since.
    I haven't found much help apart from the APC website which is minimal. Have either of you joined the AAPTA? There are some past papers there which are a bit of help...
    I live in Leeds so I don't know if you guys would be up for meeting up or setting up some study sessions as I really really don't want to fail this exam!

    Re: australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Hi Jo and Siobhan,

    No have not found out anything. I might go to the Physio Briding Course in February in Melbourne. I guess that is probably the best preparation.
    I will also update on Neuro and Respiratory as this will be my weakness too.

    Re: australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Hi siobhan,
    i am now entered for the march exam but the only past questionnaires that I have been able to find was 10 questions on the council website once I logged in. How did you find the AAPTA site as it says its under construction, did you find other stuff there. I live in Wiltshire but would be interested in meeting up as I need to pass first time as tight deadlines as I start my job in October 13! I might look at the bridging course but a long way to go and it would mean 3 weeks there as its over 3 weekends. I have worked privately in mask for a longtime but need to concentrate on the neuro and resp components as well.jo

    Re: australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Hi Katja,
    i did think about doing the bridging course but with I being spread over 3 weekends it would mean 3 weeks in oz with the family and the cost that it involves so I have decided to give it a miss. I am going to write a revision list this weekend to ensure that I cover what I should, have you done any prep yet?

    Hi sarah,

    I did think about the bridging course but I have found out so far that it is 4.5 days over 3 weekends so with flights etc it would mean 3 weeks in OZ and with a toddler it is not an option. I am going to do a list of topics and start studying. Jo

    Re: australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Hi there,
    The bridging course is $1,500 which only covers the course itself, not accomodation or flights etc. It looks really well organised but I wouldn't rely fully on the course for preparation. I'm taking the written exam in the UK and can't afford to go over for the Bridging Course. I've been told to go through all the resources on the APC website that are recomended (which is a lot!) as this is where most of the exam questions come from. It is also recomended to go throught the APA website to get an idea of the role of a Physiotherapist in Australia.
    Hope this helps!

    Re: australian written exam in Sept 12 help wanted please

    Thanks for the info! I am already in oz, waiting for my limited reg as I have a job waiting! I will have a look at resources first I think as flights and accomodation over 3weekends it's pretty pricey. If I find out anything useful I will let you know

    Update for everyone... The bridging course may be cancelled as not enough people have registered. The decision will be made this Friday. Cheers !
