The Board released an advance copy of the new National psychology examination curriculum in January 2018.
The new curriculum will come into effect on 1 August 2018, allowing a six-month transition for exam candidates and their supervisors to become familiar with the new requirements. The first national psychology examination that will be based on the new requirements will be the August sitting of the examination (3-24 August 2018).
Candidates who are preparing to sit for the national psychology examination and their supervisors are encouraged to become familiar with the new curriculum before August 2018.
Details of the new requirements and the reasons for the changes are available in the following document.
