In 2017, the NMC made changes and revisions to the way they assess English language competence. This included providing applicants with additional options to demonstrate their proficiency in English, recognising the OET as an alternative to IELTS, and lowering the accepted IELTS writing score from 7, down to 6.5.
There is information on preparing for IELTS, OET and OSCE exams, including where to find helpful resources, practice materials and sample tests.
If your immigration status will be affected by any of your test results, you can access the RCN's Immigration Advice Service.
You can find exam and test preparation books and eBooks using our Library subject guide. RCN members can borrow books and access eBooks online.
