What to expect for the GMC ID Check

The moment has finally arrived!

You're getting registered as a doctor under the GMC. Congratulations, you're that much closer to achieving your dream.

Now let's get back to what you have to do.

If you are taking PLAB 2 after October 2018 - then there is NO separate GMC ID Check for you. The ID check that happened/will happen on the day of your PLAB 2 exam is enough. The PLAB 2 booking confirmation email will direct what documents you need to bring . . .

Hello, in Turkey we do not receive an internship certificate. I am having the university ratify my internship through the document called ‘Internship Evidence Form’. However I am as I said worried about the 4.5 months gap where I had to take courses from previous term.

Hello, thank you for your reply. So if I understood correctly, the gap should not be a problem if I show and prove that I had to do 2 courses from previous term for 4.5 months and later directly complete my internship?

Hi. My visa expires on 15/01/2019 and I believe I won’t be able to attend an ID check until February. Can I apply for a new visa during this period, preferably before the 15th?

Hello
If I get late for my GMC ID check by half to one hour due to an unforseeable circumstance (such as a flight delay), will the GMC allow me to go ahead with the ID check? Or do I have to reschedule the appointment?
Please share your experience in this matter.
Thanks.
