If English is not their principal language, the applicant must have achieved a minimum score of 600 (paper-based), 250 (computer-based), or 100 (Internet-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a 7.0 overall score on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
Temporary English Test Arrangements for August 2020 Intake
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, IELTS centers have suspended testing in many countries. It is anticipated that when centers do re-open, there will be a very large backlog of tests to clear.
To enable our international applicants who are planning to join the St. George’s University School of Medicine in August 2020 to meet our admissions documents’ requirements, we will be temporarily accepting English test results by a number of other providers, including TOEFL, CEA, and Pearson.
The approved English Language Test Providers for August 2020 class are as follows:
IELTS – No changes to the current scoring (see above);
TOEFL – No changes to the current scoring (see above);
PassWord-Skills – Scoring is the same as IELTS scoring for direct entry;
C1 Advanced (CEA) – A score of 186 overall is required for direct entry;
PTE- Academic (Pearson) – A score of 85 overall is required for direct entry.
Please note that these changes do not apply to students planning to start their studies with our partner Northumbria University in the UK.
