Hello guys.

First I wanna say that I really don't know if this topic it's ok on here,so if isn't I apologize.

I am a qualified optometrist from Romania.I have been trying to convert my qualifications to be able to practice as an optometrist in the U.K for the past 3 years.The G.O.C haven had my documents in all this time and have not given me any response as to whether they approved or not. They have not rejected my application but,always tell me they don't have time to look at my file. I have been trying everything with them,calling every day,e-mailing them every day, they gave me same answer every time "we are too busy,we will get in touch with you" ,its becoming very frustrating,and I don't really know what else to do!
Anyone of you have any idea what else I can do? I'm really missing testing,it's something what I really like to do.
I wanna apply for doctorate in optometry,what I can't do it for the moment because of them . Any help is wellcome.

Thank you and sorry if isn't the right topic!

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (645)
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (817)
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (378)
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (87)
