RCGP accused of discriminating against ethnic minority candidates in MRCGP legal case


I passed my RCGP in second attempt. I am happy to be IMG, multilingual and have experience in different specialities. This is British exam and focuses on communication skills which is very important for GPS who are point of first contact for majority of the patients. Most of British graduates do well in this exam as they get lots of teaching on communication skills in their medical schools. IMGs should focus on their weaknesses during training. Emphasis should be on better training for IMGs rather than blaming college for being racist. I feel this exam does prepare you better for General practice. Again it's easy for me to say that as I have passed.
