WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE 100 POINTS OF EVIDENCE:
If there are extenuating circumstances and you are not able to provide 100 points of evidence, you have the option of providing a Statutory Declaration.
The Statutory Declaration will need to include the following:

- The reason you are unable to provide the documents

If you must provide a Statutory Declaration to make up the remaining points, you should still provide as many points of evidence via the supporting documents as possible for each position.
RACGP do not have a specific Statutory Declaration they require you to fill out. Statutory Declarations can be found online, we recommend using a Statutory Declaration specific to the state you are residing in.
