NMC Registration Changes

 NMC Registration Changes

The NMC has new rules for IELTS scores.
Check the link below for all the info.

“The applicant must complete the academic version of the IELTS test and achieve:
– at least 7.0 in the listening and reading sections
– at least 7.0 in the writing and speaking sections, and
– at least 7.0 (out of a possible 9) overall.

Applicants may provide two IELTS test certificates to meet the above requirements, but must not have scored below 6.5 in any categories, in either of the test sittings.
The two test sittings must be taken within six months of each other to be considered.”

 

For example: if an applicant took an IELTS in April 2015 and sat the test again within six months, they can use the scores from both tests to satisfy our requirements. However, no individual score can be below 6.5.
