The NMC new OET & IELTS Test combining calculator

We are excited to share with you the latest development from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). The NMC has introduced a new tool called the Test Combining Calculator, which is designed to make it easier for nurses and midwives to meet the English language requirements for registration.

The English language requirements are a key aspect of NMC registration, and they are in place to ensure that nurses and midwives can communicate effectively with patients and colleagues. The NMC accepts a range of English language tests as evidence of proficiency, including the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and the Occupational English Test (OET).

However, some nurses and midwives may have taken multiple tests and scored differently in different sections, making it difficult to determine whether they meet the NMC’s English language requirements. This is where the Test Combining Calculator comes in.

The Test Combining Calculator allows nurses and midwives to input their scores from different English language tests and calculate whether they meet the NMC’s requirements. The calculator considers the scores from all sections of the tests, including reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and provides a clear indication of whether the requirements have been met.

The Test Combining Calculator is available on the NMC website, and it is free to use. Nurses and midwives can use the tool as many times as they need to, and it is available in multiple languages to ensure accessibility for all.

The introduction of the Test Combining Calculator is a significant development for nurses and midwives who are seeking registration with the NMC. It will make the process of meeting the English language requirements simpler and more transparent, and it will help to ensure that nurses and midwives are able to communicate effectively with patients and colleagues.
We hope that this new tool will be of great benefit to nurses and midwives across the country, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the profession.
