Abstract

FEBRUARY 19, 2018, was indeed a black day for hundreds of junior doctors taking the make-or-break Written Divisional Exam of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). After months of study, while generally holding down demanding full-time jobs, and after stumping up the $1900 for the pleasure of sitting the exam, the candidates found themselves locked out of the computer-based testing system halfway through. The decision was taken to abort the exam, leaving many distraught and in tears.
