You will have to complete the membership exams during your core medical training (MRCP UK ) in order to be successful and able to proceed to the next step and work as a specialty registrar (ST3 )
In the current arraignment(2 years CMT) and because time is a big issue its recommended to do part 1 before starting your CMT ( this will be a favourable point in the application /interview )or at least in the very beginning of the program because you need to finch all 3 exams successfully in 2 years.
With the new arraignment you will have 3 years to get the membership (still better to start early )
I think talking about MRCP should be in separate section as it’s a big topic and difficult to cover here
you will need valid ALS an essential to apply for CMT.
Other courses like IMPACT, RAMSI, all medical procedure courses, teaching courses , and any other courses in any medical specialty you wish to apply for

I cant advice in this matter I don’t know (Official and Sudanese specific if known)
To be continued
Most of the MTI starts as CMT (CT1) unless they had their membership already and enough experience to work as specially registrar. If you come as MTI and had your CMT competencies signed off before your contract over you can apply for ST3
I think the most important thing in my experience is the fact that working more than 18 months in medicine outside UK is not an issue I had longer experience in medicine both in Sudan and in the UK. I think they didn’t count my experience in Sudan.
I had my MRCP part 1 and the written part 2 before applying to CMT and I think that was a big helped in getting me through the application and having enough time for paces and other things during my CMT.
I didn’t, still don’t know which deanery is the best to get trained in I think its very dependable in personal circumstances. For me I was very flexible about the places but still couldn’t get any non-biased advice in this regard.
Try to be up-to-date with your e portfolio and CMT requirement and avoid leaving this to the last minutes before ARCP ( progression assessment by the deanery) once you started your CMT tray to get an access to the e portfolio and familiarise yourself with the way it works specially if you never had one before (it will take some time to get use to it ).
Also familiarise yourself with the Core Medical Training (CMT) ARCP Decision Aid
This will guide you through the curriculum and CMT requirement
