On the 8th February 2018, the General Medical Council (GMC) which regulates doctors in the UK, announced it will routinely accept OET – the Occupational English Test – as an alternative proof of English proficiency for registration purposes. This means doctors no longer have to pass IELTS and can take the more medically relevant OET.  To find out more, access our OET Factsheet
