The Australian Pharmacy Council accredits pharmacy schools and programs. The Australian Pharmacy Council also conducts written examinations on behalf of the Pharmacy Board of Australia to assess the qualifications and skills of overseas-trained pharmacists and international students graduating from an Australian pharmacy program to determine their eligibility to become a registered practitioner.
The Australian Intern Written Examination is a computer-delivered examination that contains 125 multiple-choice questions.
Each question will have a stem (a question, phrase or short paragraph) and 4 to 5 possible answers. There is only one correct answer for each question.
The computer will randomise the order of all the questions. However, the 8 Domain 1 questions and 8 Domain 5 questions will always appear in the first sixteen questions of every examination.
