Firstly, i am very grateful towards academically team. It has been a month being student of Academically.They focus in the specific, relevant and important content which they are assisting us to Crack KAPS. In this period, i found they are concentrating on Quality rather than Quantity. I am very delightful because of your guidance and support.
I think in the field of KAPS preparation there is no one in the competition. Apart from the teaching staff(Arif sir and Harika mam) the non teaching staff(Siddharth sir, Neha mam and all) is also very helpful. Only words are not enough to thank academically team.

The trainers try to make each session interesting, and I love the way they interact with students. Test-taking strategies are super useful.
Good guidance.. for how to approach the AMC (Australian Medical Council) exam and comprehensive review.
Greetings from Papua New Guinea. At first I didn’t know where to start and how to approach the AMC MCQ exam. Since June 2023 when I started this sessions on AMC preparation the story is different now. The Two lecturers Namely, Dr Swapnil and Dr Udara are exceptionally committed and deliver well. The team is always available to answer to us anytime. They provide great support. I have not done the skill assessment yet, hoping to get that done this week and hopefully I will sit for the exam in November 2023.
The session was informative and worthy. I got to know more career options about the field which currently I'm pursuing. Working internationally, career options overseas, information about pharm. D and MD, etc are the things which is new for me and actually very informative. Interacting with the guest was really helpful and had influenced me positively.
Hello. Its been 3 months since I have joined Academically. The journey has been amazing by far. The lecturers are really helpful and great. The support is great at Academically. Would love to give +1 star for the support if I had an option.
Academically is a great platform to achieve our dream. I recently joined but the classes they providing is very informative and understandable and they always ready to help and clarify our doubts regarding our KAPS preparation. Thank you so much to team Academically for your valuable support.
Academically is an organisation which able to qualify the Australian KAPS exam. I have good experience with academically. It's provides all necessary knowledge and stuffs for the KAPS.
I like academically for their teaching and support for the APC exam for international physiotherapist student.
I came to know about academically through Instagram. I have being a part of this family since 1 month. I have joined for both PTE and APC classes. Classes are really good. As a working person, i thought it will be difficult for me to attend classes, but the recordings provided by the team is really helping me a lot. I would like to appreciate the team for the both the LMS and discord applications, which is making my exam journey easier.
If I hadn't gotten the right guidance and coaching as I got from Academically, it could have been still very difficult for me. I relied more on recorded lectures, the lectures were very informative to the point, concise and precise. Whenever I asked doubts it was cleared immediately. I have been very lucky to get coaching from Academically.

My heartfelt thanks to Academically for making me pass the KAPS Exam. The lecturers are perfect and you will get guidance according to Australian terms. In my KAPS Exam, 90% questions were from the Academically’s mock test. I would definitely recommend Academically for those who want to migrate to Australia as a pharmacist.

About The APC Examination
What is the APC Exam?
The healthcare sector is constantly growing and has a high demand for physiotherapists in Australia. Therefore, the Government of Australia welcomes registered physiotherapists from around the world to join the healthcare industry in Australia. To practise as a physiotherapist in Australia, you need to clear the APC exam. The Australian Physiotherapy Council examination assesses if the knowledge and skills of the candidate meet the Physiotherapy Practice Thresholds in Australia which are set by the Physiotherapy Board of Australia. The APC exam is your portal to prove your competence and skills to become a registered physiotherapist in Australia. You can opt for a remote written assessment in which you will be able to attend the exam from your personal location.
APC Exam Eligibility Criteria
There are different assessment pathways that the candidate can choose from. In most cases the standard assessment pathway may be opted. The eligibility for the assessment is mentioned below-
- The candidate must be an internationally trained physiotherapist with a minimum diploma-level qualification
- The candidate must hold the educational/qualification requirements for registration without any restriction in your country of training
- In the case of non-existence of a regulatory body, the candidate must be able to practise without restriction in your country of training
Procedure for APC
1. English Proficiency
Since Australia is an English-speaking country, migrating to Australia requires proof of your proficiency in the English language. For this purpose, you can choose IELTS, OET, or PTE.
2. Document evaluation
This step involves evaluating all the documents you submit according to the requirements. These include:
- Proof of educational qualifications
- Work experience evidence if any
- Valid passport

3. APC Written Assessment
The APC written assessment consists of two papers that can be taken on the same day. This will assess your knowledge, problem-solving skills and decision-making process.
4. Expression of Interest and Visa Application
This step is to be completed by all skilled migrants wishing to live and work in Australia. It is a formal submission to the Department of Home Affairs in Australia. This process can lead to visa application and processing.
5. APC Clinical Assessment
The APC clinical assessment is the final step of the process. This will create a space to display your clinical skills and reasoning. This assessment is conducted in a simulated environment. The candidates are required to go to Australia to complete this assessment.
The Australian Physiotherapy Council exam consists of 2 parts. They are the APC written assessment and the APC clinical assessment.
The written assessment consists of 2 papers: Paper 1 and Paper 2.
Each paper has 15 cases, totalling 30 cases across both papers. Each case has four multiple-choice questions. You are required to choose the one correct response to each item from a list of four possible answers. There are 60 multiple-choice items on each paper.
Remote Written Assessment is a remotely supervised examination that is conducted four times a year. It allows you to undertake your assessment in your location. This means that the candidates from India can complete the written assessment from India itself.
