UK NMC Rejects IELTS Done From Home, Accepts Home Based OET by katty : September 04, 2020, 04:54:58 PM
Online language tests
For the latest information, visit our Covid-19: Information for overseas candidates page.
IELTS
After careful consideration we have decided that we are not able to accept the IELTS indicator test at this time. This is because the security measures for the indicator test are not comparable to those in place for the face-to-face test and do not meet the standards we require for registration.
OET
Following a successful pilot from OET, we will be accepting the OET@Home test as evidence of English language competency from 10 October.
The OET@Home test allows candidates to take the OET on their computer at home instead of having to travel to a test centre. It uses the same test material, format, tasks and activities as the test venue centres.
From 19 September, we’ll also accept the new OET on computer test, which allows candidates to take the OET on a computer at a test centre instead of a paper test.
For more information about the OET, please visit the OET website.
We accept two language tests as evidence of your ability to communicate effectively in English: the International English Language Test System (IELTS) and the Occupational English Test (OET).

You must achieve the required score in each of the four areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Test scores are valid for two years.

International English Language Test System (IELTS)
We'll accept an IELTS Academic examination certificate that confirms you achieved:

an overall score of at least 7
at least 6.5 in the writing section and at least 7 in the reading, listening and speaking sections.
We updated this requirement on Wednesday 5 December 2018.

Combining IELTS test scores
You can achieve the required mark across two test sittings if:

you sit the tests within six months of each other
you’re tested in all four sections at the same time
all scores in both sittings are above 6.5, and
you achieve at least 6.5 in the writing section and at least 7 in the reading, listening and speaking sections in either of the two test sittings.

Occupational English Test (OET)
We’ll accept an OET examination certificate that confirms you achieved:

at least a grade C+ in the writing section
at least a grade B in the reading, listening and speaking sections.
We updated this requirement on Tuesday 28 January 2020.

Combining OET test scores
You can achieve the required mark across two test sittings if:

you sit the tests within six months of each other
you’re tested in all four sections at the same time
all grades in both sittings are above grade C+, and
you achieve at least a grade C+ in the writing section and at least a grade B in the reading, listening and speaking sections in either of the two test sittings.
