    IMGs through PTAP from English speaking countries

    Anyone who’s gone to Pakistan through PTAP (after doing primary, secondary schooling in English) and gone back home to Europe, the US etc have you had to give OET/ IELTS? To my previous knowledge people who’d done their earlier schooling in English speaking countries didn’t have to give English proficiency tests. But now i can’t seem to find anything that says so and on the other hand, websites seem to give indications that we do have to, regardless of citizenship.

    Hey so I already got into a Pak college. I’m talking about after I graduate and go back home. And you don’t need to give IELTS, nobody trying to get into med school needs to.
