We have unfortunately had to reschedule the October Knowledge Assessment of Pharmaceutical Sciences (KAPS) examination to December 2020.

We made this decision based on many factors outside of our control. Many test centres across the world are unavailable due to COVID-19 health restrictions.

Going ahead with the October session would exclude many candidates from the opportunity to sit the exam. So, to the fairness of all candidates, we could not offer the October session.

We live our values. We will always seek to remain fair in times of uncertainty. We understand this may be disappointing. Please know that we are here to answer any of your queries. You can call +612 6188 4288.

Please find the updated registration and exam dates on our exam dates and centres page.

Dates for the 2021 KAPS exams will be available on the exam dates and centres page later this year.
