Overview of OET

OET is an internationally recognized English language proficiency test developed specifically for healthcare professionals. It tests your ability to communicate effectively in an English-speaking healthcare workplace through four skills: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The test materials and tasks reflect real-life situations you are likely to face when you step into the workplace.

OET caters to 12 healthcare professions:

  • Dentistry
  • Dietetics
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Podiatry
  • Radiography
  • Speech Pathology
  • Veterinary Science

OET comprises four components or sub-tests. The Listening and Reading sub-tests are common to candidates from all professions while the Writing and Speaking sub-tests have been made profession-specific in order to ensure that OET is the language proficiency test and not a sort of medical knowledge.

How is OET Training at Centre beneficial?

Successfully finishing OET not only means recognition from healthcare organisations, but it also gives you an increased sense of confidence in your own English ability. The skills you learn while preparing for OET will be useful for the rest of your professional life. As you prepare and then eventually attempt the test, you are very likely to see your confidence increasing because you are able to gauge how well you can communicate when performing everyday tasks at work.

How is OET different from other general and academic English tests?

While a general or academic English test assesses you on everyday English skills or academic skills, OET tests your ability to use English for a specific purpose in a healthcare setting. OET uses real workplace scenarios that healthcare professionals in English-speaking countries would encounter and expects you to be proficient in the skills you require to communicate successfully in those situations. That is why the Writing and Speaking sub-tests are designed differently for each of the 12 professions that OET tests.

Who marks or scores OET test papers?

OET is scored by trained Assessors and computers. Trained OET Assessors mark Listening Part A and Reading Part A with a detailed marking guide. Answer booklets are assigned to them at random so that results are fair. Answers to Reading and Listening Parts B and C are scanned and automatically scored by a computer.

OET has a strict process for scoring that ensures test results are objective and unbiased. In the Speaking sub-test, the test-day interlocutor (the person who plays the role of the patient in the test) does not take part in the assessment process. Each Speaking sub-test is recorded and these recorded audio files are scored by at least two trained Assessors. Similarly, Writing sub-test answer scripts are also scored by at least two trained Assessors. In the event that the two Assessors assign different scores, the audio files and answer scripts will be marked by a third senior Assessor who has not previously been involved with the assessment.

What is the application process for OET Coaching & Tests?

You can apply for OET on the website Ensure you check the test dates for your chosen profession before you register for the test. If you are a candidate with health- related or any other special needs, you can make requests for requirements on the Help and Information section of the OET website when you apply. You will need to apply before the application closing date mentioned on the website.

Where is OET conducted?

OET is available at several locations globally. The website indicates available test dates in different locations throughout the year.

What is the best way to prepare?

If you want to attempt OET, your preparation should include two equally important aspects:

  • Improving language proficiency through regular practice: Work at your English skills daily as soon as you decide that you want to attempt OET. Language proficiency cannot be developed in a week or two, so begin practicing every day.
  • Familiarizing yourself with test structure and task types: Understand what the different sub-tests assess and how to approach the task/question types. Practice doing the tasks using sample question papers at least a few times to avoid struggling with the format of the questions on Test Day.

What happens on Test Day at OET Coaching Centre?

OET has a list of regulations that detail what you must and must not carry with you into the venue on Test Day. For example, MP3 players and mobile phones aren’t permitted into the venue, and you must bring the national identify document that you applied with. It is very important to read the latest version of these regulations on the OET website well in advance of Test Day.

You’ll receive information from the Test Venue prior to Test Day telling you when you should arrive at the venue for registration. Remember that the registration time is not the same as your test time, so be prepared to arrive earlier. The exact timings of sub-tests are available in the timetable which you’ll receive by email after you apply and pay for OET. You can also view your timetable online on your OET profile.

OET tests the four language skills of Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. Each skill has a separate sub-test. While the Listening and Reading sub-tests are common to all professions, the Writing and Speaking sub-tests are designed to test your ability in a profession-specific context.
