Mirembe Valerian started this petition to General Medical Council and

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) academic writing score of 6.5  is an enormous stumbling block for  a number of foreign medical  doctors on their journey to GMC (General Medical Council) and AMC(Australian Medical Council) registration.

A number of good doctors are left out because of missing only 0.5 to achieve the  desired score  of 7 in writing required for AMC and GMC registration.Most of them take the exam over 5 times and are only frustrated with the same result of 6.5 in writing  over and over again. 

I would humbly request the AMC and GMC to consider a writing score of 6.5 in academic IELTs as appropriate for International  medical graduates .This will help the Councils not to miss out on otherwise intelligent  doctors who may not score the desired band 7 in academic  writing. Additionally, I believe 6.5 in writing is a satisfactory score for a medical doctor. 

Thank you.
