OET SCORE CLUBBING

Combining OET Scores

Candidates can currently combineΒ their OET results from two test sessions. The UK’s Nursing and Midwifery regulatory authority now accept combining OET results from two sittings. The OET criteria and combination are described in further detail below.

The NMC will now accept combined OET scores if no sub-test results are more than half theΒ grades below the required mark. The individual test results from both tests can be C for Writing and C+ for Listening, Reading and Speaking to be eligible for clubbing, but the combined scores still need to be C+ for writing and B for listening, reading, and speaking.

OET Scoring Clubbing needs

You can achieve the required mark across two test sittings if:

  • You’re tested in all four sections at the same time
  • All grades in both sittings are above grade C+, and
  • You achieve at least a grade C+ in the writing section and at least a grade B in the reading, listening and speaking sections in either of the two test sittings.

Examples of Acceptable OET clubbing:

COMBINED OET SCORES: ACCEPTED
 ListeningReadingWritingSpeaking
Test 1BBC+B
Test 2BC+BB

In either of the two test sessions, the candidate received at least a grade B in the listening, speaking, and reading sections and at least a grade C+ in the writing component. No score fell below a grade C+.

COMBINED OET SCORES: ACCEPTED
 ListeningReadingWritingSpeaking
Test 1BBC+B
Test 2CC+BB

This application would not be accepted. The applicant has scored lower than grade C+.

Another change to the rules for clubbing is that the NMC has extended the period for combining scores. Previously, the period was 6 months, and the new rules have extended this to 12 months. This change will give students more time to prepare before retaking the test and give them more flexibility when scheduling their exams.
