NMC amended CBT passing score and re-sit patterns
New NMC CBT Rule – Latest NMC Update
UK NMC has made changes with CBT Overall passing score and exam retake format. CBT is the Part 1 test of competence for the overseas nurses seeking registration in the UK.
From 5th April 2019, the decision as to whether a candidate passes or fails the CBT will be governed by an overall pass mark. Previously the decision, a candidate passes or fails the CBT was determined by both critical questions and final pass mark. A candidate had to answer 90 percent of critical questions correctly and also the overall pass score was set as 60 percent. Now, the candidate has to achieve just the overall passing mark that is 68% for adult nursing and 63%for midwifery.
Mentor Merlin’s proficient study unveils that passing CBT will be much easier than before as a result of this new NMC change and also will bring immense possibilities for the nurses from overseas to the UK.
From now onwards candidates can also sit the CBT up to three times as part of one application, with a minimum of 10 days between each sitting. If you are unsuccessful after your permitted attempts, your application will close. You’ll be required to submit a new application and will not be able to sit the CBT again for a minimum of six months. NMC initially allowed only two attempts and also the applicant had to wait for a minimum of 28 days between the first and second attempt of the examination.
Consequently, Mentor Merlin has decided to give the CBT materials in reduced price and 100% refund options to Mentor Merlin’s candidates so as to reach it to every nurses en route to UK recruitment. To know more details you can contact us on +44 2081338135 or WhatsApp us on +91 6282354578
