    Hello everybody,

    Does anyone have reliable information on recent competition ratios for Irish GP training schemes? Neither the ICGP nor the training schemes themselves seem to want to tell me...

    Cheers,

    I doubt there are any official figures out there - this report suggests that the ratio was 3:1 about 10 years ago, and from what I've heard it's still more competitive than UK schemes, but you'd probably need to talk to folks already on the schemes directly to get more of a sense. Remember that Irish applicants are likely to be applying straight from intern year (F1) rather than F2, which might advantage you.

    This link is a bit more recent and puts the ratio at 1.75 (but in Dublin it will be much higher). And there is always the chance of an extra place if they manage to **** it up again :laugh::laugh:
