OET now accepted by the NMC
OET vs IELTS
Since the announcement last week, we've been speaking to our nurses to find out their thoughts about the OET vs IELTS. The main thoughts are:
- The OET is specific to healthcare and the scenarios are familiar, the IELTS exam can be considered random requiring knowledge of a broad range of topic.
- IELTS is a global exam, available all over the world, but the OET is only available in select locations (including London).
- The cost of the IELTS exam is currently £160, but the OET is £350.g
