NMC OSCE Feedback

NMC OSCE Result – “It was my best decision to join IELTS Medical for OSCE Preparation”

NMC OSCE Results … are incredibly important. Usually released within 72 hours of the NMC OSCE examination, these results determine whether or not an OSCE candidate is able to finally call themselves a nurse. The stakes are high and the pressure can get to even the toughest, most skilled practitioner. At this stage he or she would have already invested months – if not years – of their life in the process. Furthermore, presuming they required IELTS/OET and CBT [...]

Which is easier for healthcare professionals – IELTS or OET?

When it comes to both the IELTS and the OET, the question we are asked most often is, “Which is easier IELTS or OET?” and our response is usually, “It depends.” You see there are advantages and disadvantages to either English test depending on your situation. Which one is better?  That question is like comparing a Ferrari to a Lamborghini – either will get you to where you need to go, it just depends on which you prefer. Both the IELTS and [...]

OET 2.0 Listening Practice – Diabulimia by Dr. Annalise Keating

  Transcript Hello my name is Annalise Keating and I’m a gastroenterologist working with a multinational team to raise awareness of a relatively obscure condition called Diabulimia. The name is derived from a mixture of diabetes and bulimia, as it describes the situation where type one diabetics develop the behavioural characteristics that are common to the aforementioned eating disorder. As insulin restriction is a significantly more dangerous act than calorie purging, the sooner something can be done about the countless lives being [...]

OET Test Day Prep – Every Wednesday Until June and July Exams

This Wednesday saw the second session of OET Test Day prep for Nurses who have registered for the OET examination through IELTS Medical. We tackled OET listening part C where we looked at how to tackle the OET Listening subtest.

Flexible IELTS Courses for Doctors and Nurses

Flex courses (Group or One:One) Our doctors and nurses frequently comment that they are extremely happy that we are open 7 days a week.

“I passed… It was a close cut though”

On Friday evening, our Whatsapp phone rang with news from Nurse H. She sent the results to the left and said, I passed… It was a close cut though. Whilst we were delighted for Nurse H, we have to disagree that it was close. You see, when Nurse H came to us in January 2019 for an Intermediate IELTS course, she purchased 15 sessions. Working as a domiciliary carer left her with very little time for her studies, but her recent [...]

NMC CBT for Nurses: “I wish it was more days…”

Today was the final day of our jam-packed NMC CBT Course and whilst we were expecting attendees to be relieved, instead one of our anonymous client satisfaction surveys expressed this simple, but effective wish: I wish it was more days. We understand, Nurse E, we wish our Senior Registered Nurse Educator Ines extended her excellent 4-day course too. However, 4 days is sufficient to cover the topics that her course includes. The comprehensive, “interactive” course includes but is not limited to: NMC [...]
