    You can go to F2 if you can find a job but when I spoke to some Czech grads back here they said they decided to take F1 vacancies. There is a difference between level of registration and then getting a job.

    If you are an F2 do you really want to be in charge of a group of F1 doctors on your first shift in the NHS after having nil management experience or knowing your way around the NHS?

    Haha good point. I didn't think F2 would manage F1. hmmmmm decisions decisions. I'd want to specialise quickly, as I am a mature student. I'd have to just bear it for 1 year.

    I can not afford the 6 years, so I'm going for grad entry in Poland. or I'll try grad entry in UK next year.

    You can get a student loan I believe if you study abroad? Also, I'm a mature student too and I already have a degree but not in a science which is frustrating!

    Yes and personally I would prefer it just to get used to the NHS systems. Wouldn't want to make an error due to lack of NHS experience or badly inform an F1 if I didn't know something that the NHS requires me to do. Being a doctor isn't about just knowing your stuff it is also being able to apply your knowledge and skills in the clinical setting in the system you are working in.

    The registration is just simply our legal stamp to practice and apply for vacancies.

    I have a non science degree too! I would NOT reccommend doing A-levels with Open College. My friend did something similiar, she was predicted A's in all her correspondance assignment, but in the exams she got E's! She was gutted. Unless you got 2 years and do it full time with tutors in a face to face college. I do not reccommend.

    Why not do grad entry medicine at St Georges, you can have a degree in any subject, you just gotta pass the GAMSAT exam, which is really really really hard!

    STUDENT LOANS. In Bulgaria, the banks have frozen and stopped giving out loans. Romania, I can hardly find any information, as most of the agency websites are super dodgy. Make sure you have enough money if you do go.

    Well said!!! Makes a difference to have someone else saying things that make common sense. I spoke to a few agents and so far only one actually says as it is and give good advice worth listening to, and didn't have to part with my hard earned money at all apart from some exam fees (about £280).

    Was a refreshing change from all this "guaranteed entry even with low grades" nonsense. Couldn't imagine studying next to people who should never go anywhere near a medical school!

    I have registered for czech exams with medical doorway with riga stradins as my 1st reserve (so fourth choice) and then pleven and my dead cert if those four don't come off. All i paid was a small fee for three exams which has saved me a fortune compare to flying to prague three times.

    honestly if any agent is asking for £1K from you then that is just bonkers. You can apply to Pleven for zip as they don't require any entrance exam. Spend your grand on about six months or more worth of accommodation.

    I went through Tutelage. I didn't get charged for making an application to study at Pleven, I only paid translation costs etc.
