Hi OTR takers,

I am hoping to pass my NBCOT exam by the end of this year. Currently I am working on IBT and Application of NBCOT.

I submitted my nbcot application on may 2005. I recieved application status email on 12th may 2005. According tothe status I needed to submitt my Toefl score . Unfortunatly I did not get required score in TSE. Now I am working on IBT.

Another thing, last week I again recieved an email on my application status that I need to submitted ACVF along with TOEFL score. What is that? I am getting this information after 9 months. Were they sleeping?:wallbash:

I Called nbcot told them," I can send Internship completion Certifiacte. It has date of graduation and type of degree". But they want that same thing on the different format. I mean on ACVF form.

The thing is that it will take lot of efforts and time on my part as currently I stay in US. I am highly pissed off.:mad:

 

Does anybody face such kinds of problem?Or it is only me who is having this problem.

Thanks:(

Hello fellow OTs

 

i am very happy that we have a forum here in test magic. [dance] [bounce] THANKS NISHA!!! :tup: I am now reviewing for NBCOT exam. I hope i will pass it. please pray for me.:luck2:

 

In regard to the toefl /tse, what i can advise is that just visit the tse forum here in testmagic. its really a great help. just follow the advice of those people who had taken the exam and passed it. the twe part of the toefl exam, i also used this site to guide me on how to compose an essay in an appropriate, passable twe essay.

 

as for the nbcot requirement, as I know of, one should complete all the requirements before taking the exam. if one has submitted the toefl score to nbcot and has not yet passed the tse, then they will inform the person what else should be completed. if the nbcot have already received the scores from ets then they will inform the applicant.

 

I hope our other fellow OTs will give us information, advices and other helpful tips in order to pass the nbcot.

 

Thanks very much and God bless us all.

Hello Folks

 

All the best for those waiting for results of TSE and TOEFL and also those who are perparing for OTR? I am still stuck waiting for the iBT and TSE results. Hope I pass this time and join the bandwagon of OTR preparations. I am running out of patience and time.

 

Do you know if we can take OTR next year without having Masters provided that TSE and TOEFL is passed this year? Is this a rumour or truth?

Hello OTR!

 

This information was emailed to me which was taken from the NBCOT:

 

NBCOT® Policy Change for International Occupational Therapist

Eligibility Determination (IOTED) Program

 

On January 1, 2007, the following change to the education criteria

of the NBCOT International Occupational Therapist Eligibility

Determination (IOTED) Program will take effect:

 

All occupational therapists applying for eligibility to take the

NBCOT Certification Examination must have successfully graduated

from a post-baccalaureate accredited occupational therapy

professional program recognized by NBCOT . Programs should be

accredited by either the Accreditation Council for Occupational

Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy

Association or the World Federation of

Occupational Therapists (WFOT).

 

As a result of this policy change, December 31, 2006 is the last

date that NBCOT will accept any new or reactivated IOTED

applications from occupational therapists holding

diploma/baccalaureate degrees.

 

Active applications from diploma/baccalaureate applicants that are

approved to take the NBCOT Certification Examination for

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST REGISTERED OTR®, will be given a one-year

period—until December 31, 2007—to take and pass the examination.

Candidates who do not take and pass the examination by this deadline

will be required to repeat the eligibility

determination process, and must meet the new education

criteria. This examination deadline also applies to repeating

candidates who have failed prior exam attempts.

 

Inactive applications from diploma/baccalaureate applicants that are

on file at NBCOT as of December 31, 2006,

will become permanently closed from further review.

I hope this will help.

hi, everyone!!! I just took the NBCOT exam last July 1st in Manila, of course, it's where I am located. For sure, I will not pass the exam coz I wasn't able to study while working. I just want to know if anyone had taken the exam last July? What reviewers you're going to study? I have an old reviewer by Cottrell, copyright 2001. brand new but old edition. if you're interested to buy it, just send me a message.
