Why are there two components?

The Written and Clinical Components provide us with different information about your knowledge, skills and abilities.

The Written Component tests a broad base of physiotherapy knowledge in the practice areas of neuromusculoskeletal, neurological, cardiopulmonary-vascular and multisystem. The Written Component tests your ability to use and integrate clinical knowledge and to solve clinical problems using clinical scenarios. You must achieve a minimum overall score to pass the Written Component.

The Clinical Component tests safe, effective use of the principles and processes of physiotherapy practice. The knowledge, skills and abilities assessed by the Clinical Component include communication skills and professional behaviour.
