      The Nursing and Midwifery Council of United Kingdom this year commenced a process of reviewing its english requirements. CLICK ME and CLICK ME to check earlier posts on that topic.

      Following the acceptance of the proposals by the reviewing committee, a lot of people were left in confusion as to what it means but the council has given clarity as to what this means.

      From Healthworkersbio understanding:

      1. On test combination:

      -You can now combine results that are up to 12months

      For IELTS

      you need to still score 7 in listening, Speaking and Reading + 6. 5 in writing. For Listening, Speaking and Reading, you need to have band 7 in any of the results and not less than 6.5 in any of the (reading, listening and speaking) and not less than 6.0 in writing.

      This means if you want to combine, you need to have 7 in three domains and 6. 5 in writing  from any of the results but no result must have less than 6.5 in any of the results for the three domains and not less than  6.0 in writing.

      In another simple meaning, you cannot combine any IELTS results with 6.0 in listening reading and speaking or with 5.5 in writing and at the end of your combination, you need to have band 7 in Reading Listening and Speaking and 6. 5 in writing.

      You can use this HWB checklist to see if you are good to combine

      Question checklist:

      PART A

      You cannot combine if your answer is yes to any of these questions:

      1. In any of the results, Do you have 6.0 in reading, speaking, listening?

      2. In any of the results, do you have 5.5 in writing?

      PART B:

      You cannot combine if any of the answer is NO:

      1. From the two results, do you have at least 7 in Reading Listening Speaking?

      2. Do you have 6.5 in writing?

      2. On employer’s proof of english:

      You must be in healthcare practice in UK, worked with your employer for 1 year, and have one ielts not less than 6.5 in three other domain and 6.0 in writing.
