    what is the point of doing a national one?
    Partly it's to tie in with the national job matching system.

    Our current third years have been told to expect some flavour of national exam, whether it is binding or what form it will take isn't exactly certain. Getting medical schools to agree on it has been like that scene in Battle Royale when they set off the exploding collar in the classroom at the start.

    On the Keele question, GMC re-accreditation is a normal process that happens every five years or so to all schools. We had ours over the last year. I don't think any school has ever had their status repealed, at least not in modern times. Keele is in the process of extracting itself from Manchester and going independent which means things will be a bit more complicated than that but I would have no worries about the place. The workforce planning people are dependent on the output of the new medical schools and it would be a monumental embarrassment (As in, everyone involved being sacked, probably the end of whatever health secretary was in cabinet) if any medical school were to go under.
