    Concerning the Pearson Vue CBT part 1 of NMC exams, I am scheduled to take it next month and am still confused about the question structure. Coming from the (PN) NCLEX layout (although that was a transition from any other (standardized, etc) testing, the NCLEX was pretty straightforward once you got the hang of it. I finally found one study material for this (had to pay) and am still figuring out how to access everything. Although about half of the questions are very easy, considering the other possible answers are completely off-base. One question was completely wrong to what the answer would be on the NCLEX, though I couldn't really find an NCLEX-approved answer. And another had made-up words as incorrect answers. Some questions even include NHS health stats. Like the NCLEX, they also want you to look through the current health act legislation as relevant to UK. I encountered ONE question of priority/triage, and it also happened to be the only scenario-based one I found. Has anyone who has taken it have any advice about the question format? I am questioning if there is any form of consistency between nursing education world-wide. Am I wrong to think this test is only for foreigners having to prove their level of nursing education, which to me shouldn't include UK-specific stats and laws? And out of curiousity, what is the name for the NHS nursing boards?

    Hi, NCLEX is quite different from uk cbt. I reviewed nclex materials on my 1st attempt but only made me confused during my cbt exam. I suggest drop your nclex reviewers and focus on how UK CBT is structured. British also have different approach on several issues. Focus on royal marsden and domains and otjer nmc standards.

    Hi Bajaana5,

    I agree with SelangRN! I think the NCLEX is very different from the U.K. CBT. The procedures are slightly different, some medications have different names, etc. I too understand that science is science and anatomy is the same all over the world. However, there are different approaches to nursing and caring for others. Throw away all your NCLEX material and read the Royal Marsden! Good luck!
