The national exam for medical radiation practice is based on the Professional capabilities for medical radiation practice which describe the entry level professional capabilities for the three divisions of medical radiation practice.
The exam is an objective measure of an individual’s ability to review, critique, analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge and apply professional judgement in meeting the Professional capabilities.
The Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the Board) may use an exam:

The Board calibrates the exam regularly using final-year students and recent graduates to establish baseline performance. The current pass mark for the exam is a minimum of 65 per cent in both Part A (common capabilities) and Part B (division specific capabilities).
If a candidate has attempted and failed the exam three times they will not be allowed to attempt or register to sit the exam again. For more information, please see the National exam guidelines.
