Stuck at 6.5?

Today, a visit today from the representatives conducting our exam in November, sparked a discussion about IELTS scores. Many times students come to us wanting to boost one band that’s stuck at 6.0-6.5. One thing that they sometimes don’t appreciate is that a 6.0-6.5 demonstrates that they have a good foundation. With a little improvement on their technique and lots of guided practice, the 7.0-7.5 is well within their reach. Take writing for example, an ex-IELTS examiner remarked that what can let students down is their vocabulary. The IELTS examiner is testing for range of words and for accuracy in their use. All of our students will be entered into the IELTS Academic exam, so formal language is a must. Here at IELTS Medical, we focus on each of the skills in detail, ensuring that by the time you attempt the exam, the 6.0-6.5 will be a distant memory.

How the GMC considers evidence from a country where English is the first and native language

For the avoidance of doubt, the GMC does not accept evidence of non-medical University education completed in a country where English is the first and native language as sufficient on its own to demonstrate language capability for safe practice in the UK. This is because this type of evidence does not demonstrate the ability to read, write, speak and interact with patients, relatives and healthcare professionals in English. Furthermore, If the evidence relates to secondary education, it will be beyond what the GMC considers recent.

According to the GMC, the easiest way to demonstrate proficiency of English language to satisfy licensing requirements, is to take the academic version of the IELTS test and gain an overall score of 7.5, with a minimum of 7.0 in each of the band scores: listening, reading, speaking and writing.
