“Your centre is too far”

  At IELTS Medical, we aim to offer an excellent service by catering to the individual needs of all of our students. Being on the receiving end of several phone calls from dedicated overseas students, I felt the system had to be updated in order to extend help to those who cannot physically attend our classes.

Is the GMC’s high IELTS score requirement achievable?

From 18 June 2014, the General Medical Council (GMC)’s requirement for IELTS to satisfy the English language requisite (in order to register an overseas doctor to work in the UK) has risen to:A score of 7.0 in each of the components (Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing); An overall score of 7.5.This is perceived as ‘unfair’ by many, since an overall score of 7.5 can only be achieved if a candidate scores a 7.0 in two of the four components mentioned [...]
