    ACOPRA australian exam

    Add your physio job on Physiobob.com
    hello!

    i am a recently graduated third year UK physiotherapist and have emigration status through my partner for australia. we intend to emigrate in november 2006 and i hope to sit the march 2007 written exam, followed by the clinical exam.

    my question is whether or not a newly graduated UK physiotherapist would be able to pass these exams? has anyone taken them recently and are they able to give an idea of the level of difficulty?

    any other advice would be gratefully received.

    thank you.

    Hi,

    I want to sit for the same exam in March 07. For the start you should apply for "Eligibility assessment". When this is completed ACOPRA will send you some references and studying guides plus a few samples of previous year’s exams. It gives you some idea of the exam and what sort of questions to expect.

    Best of luck

    ACOPRA australian exam

    hi ark,

    if you type in ACOPRA into google, it will all come up for you, most of the information is in PDF format so i will have difficulty linking you to it. it is all pretty straight forward, apart from knowing what is in the exams!!

    if you are wanting to take the march 2007 exam, you will need to get things going pretty soon as the eligibility assessment needs to be in before october i think.

    best of luck.

    The standards for registration with the Australian Physiotherapy Council (formerly ACOPRA) can be viewed here: http://www.physiocouncil.com.au/file...therapySummary

    I have also attached a pdf to this post of the current guideline at todays date

    Acopra exam

    Hi All,

    I am very pleased, actually excited, to communicate that the pass rate for the last Acopra written exam (Sept 06) has been 70%.

    Results were out today and I can say that this is the highest percentage reached in the history of this procedure! This exam was also the first one where the candidates were guided by our study group.

    Just shortly, I inform you that this study group started as a protest against the unfair system of this procedure. Sept 05 exam, where only 14% of the candidates passed (compared to the average 50% of the previous exams) was the last drop for us. Now we try to help all the people wanting to be registered in Australia, so that they can make it at first attempt, while most of us had to attempt several times with high costs.

    We have study material, Sept 05 papers (the only ones given, because of the protest, but protected by a disclaimer, so I can give them only to people enrolled in the exam....), old Acopra guidelines, University lectures, and lots of feedback and advice from us that have been through it (three times myself). We have a yahoo study group for the moment (you can post your email address here so I can send you the invitation to join the group). We are planning though to create our official association for overseas physios in Australia with a proper website.

    I'll be pleased to let you join the group, as I said please send your email address.
