Tamam Elsayed started this petition to General Medical Council and

We are the IMGs who willing to work and practice medicine in the UK through the English language test (OET &IELTS) and PLAB exams . 

In the light of the current situation caused by the pandemic disease- Covid 19 and the recent updates announced by the General Medical Council (GMC) regarding PLAB exams cancellation, the International Medical Graduates (IMG) who have been negatively affected by this delay request the GMC to extend the validity of English Language Tests as well as PLAB Exams for more than two years. Although IMG are keen on our health and safety and appreciate the GMC decision, a great number of IMG who have taken OET, IELTS and PLAB1 exams within the last two years and planned to get the GMC registration before the expiry dates of the exams, would be significantly affected by the cancellation of exams. Consequently, we ask the GMC to put the spent time, efforts and fees into consideration and extend the accepted validity of IELTS, OET and PLAB1 exams for more the two years.
