Practice MCQ Test comprises of 120 MCQs (Paper 1 & 2- 60 each).
Purpose of this test (Only): Passing is set up at 70%.
Please note that APC does not report the "Individual percentage" you will have received for your paper 1/2 combined.
Please check the written exam booklet to understand how APC scores, mainly to understand this: " The cut-score of 500 on the scale represents the level of performance to pass a Paper as confirmed by the Assessment Committee and ensures that this standard is maintained over Written Assessment sessions, irrespective of differences between examination papers and/or cohorts of candidates."
"The scaled score reflects performance more accurately than a percentage since percentage score does not take into account the level of difficulty of an individual assessment paper. As such, the percentage of questions candidates answered correctly will not be reported."
"It is important to note that your scaled score is not an indication of how you performed on your assessment against your peers. It is instead an accurate representation of your individual performance against the standard to pass the Written Assessment".
So overall, you would not know the level of difficulty for APC written exam and then what would be 500 scale score would be for that session.
That is why we have set a 70% pass for a practice session for AAPTA members/participants.
Before this new system is implemented by APC, it used to be "If you score 66 or more items correctly (out of 120), you will be invited to progress to the clinical assessment." - It means used to be 55% to proceed for the next clinical stage.
Hope it helps to understand.
