IELTS is the International English Language Testing System – an assessment of proficiency in the English language. Candidates do not have to pass the IELTS in order to take the MRCP(UK) examinations. However, we advise that in order to be sufficiently prepared to sit the exams, their English language ability should be equivalent to IELTS Level 7.5 in each module.
