TOPIC: Is the ESA medical different from the IB medical?

Is the ESA medical different from the IB medical? 8 years 8 months ago #17955

  • Nick Green
Hello everyone

This is my first post so please be kind.

My question is:-

Is the ESA medical different from the IB medical? I know the forms you have to fill in have changed and the point scoring system has changed but i was just wondering if the medicals are any different? From what they ask you to how they score your points?

Thanks for any help

kind regards

Nick
