The ADC updates application periods to support candidates

7 June 2021

The impact of the recent COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria has been extensive and far reaching. To support our candidates, the Australian Dental Council (ADC) has made some changes to examination application periods to maximise the availability of examination places for candidates.

Written examination

The September written examination application period for all professions is extended to 25 June 2021. All candidates holding a valid initial assessment are eligible to apply.

Due to the recent COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria, there may be some delays in processing your application. You will receive an email when your application is received and an email when your application has been assessed.

Practical examinations

The ADC has made changes to practical examination seat allocations for the second half of 2021. This is part of our ongoing commitment to provide candidates with opportunities to sit the practical examination.

The below eligibility requirements replace those previously announced for the application period commencing in July.

Please note. Application periods and examination dates are subject to change.

Examination places are subject to availability. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible to secure a place.

Candidates with existing examination bookings or pending examination results are not eligible to apply.

Additional information

Please read the conditions of booking on the application period page for applying for a written or practical examination.

Travelling to an ADC examination is the candidate's responsibility. Failure to arrange travel or obtain necessary visas after the allocation of your examination date is considered a withdrawal and associated fees will apply.

Practical examinations are only held in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Candidates are encouraged to carefully consider their ability to travel before applying for any examination.

The ADC reserves the right to change these application and examination dates. We will communicate any changes to candidates as soon as this information is available.

Due to the situation surrounding COVID-19, the ADC is not announcing further practical examination seats at this time. Should additional examination seats become available, these will be announced at a later date.
