I recently graduated medicine from Sudan and im a british citizen, so my next step is to apply for UKFPO 2018. However, i dont think ill be able to apply for next year because i cant get the ielts results I require which is 7.5 in each module. Today was already my second attempt and unfortunately it was my last one, because results come out on the 21st and eligibility period closes on the 9th of august,meaning i wont have time for another test. According to the mistakes i count, i wont get above 7.5 yet again and im gonna have to wait for next year to apply for ukfpo 2019.

I will be staying in england for a vacation for the next couple of weeks but theres a chance ill live there too. I want your suggestions on what to do until 2019 in case i dont pass the IELTS exam.

Well you can't practice medicine obviously. You are effectively a university graduate with a science degree. You can do what you want - get a job, go travelling, whatever.

Medical recruitment agencies might be able to give you more info, but obviously you will need to pass IELTS before doing anything as even an FY1 doctor.

Hi sorry if it's a stupid question but if you are British citizen why do you have to do ILETS? Did you do gcses or A levels here?

Coz, your degree has to be from either UK institute, non European med University grads must have ielts 7.5 for ukfpo entry. I believe that it doesn’t matter if you are British or not.

I wish best of luck for all who applied

Hi, thank you for this update. Do you think your internship had helped you in your F1 post? The reason I am asking is because I am in the same boat as you were 2 years ago

When you do an internship, all you need to do is to submit your certificate of completion of internship and certificate of good standing, from the country you finished from and you will get a full registration, and will not need the UKFPO foundation program anymore. You will be able to apply for FY1 trust grade and stand alone jobs.
You will still need to pass Plab 1 and 2, and of course, IELTS, but the required marks are less. You’ll need not less than 7.0 in each module and a band 7.5 overall OR pass the OET test. I hear the OET is easier.
