What is the OET?

The Occupational English Test (OET) is a language test for overseas qualified medical and health professionals whose first language is not English. The Test measures the language competency of health professionals who are seeking registration and the ability to practise in an English-speaking context

  • Currently, it assesses English language competency as it is used in the following professions in Australia: Dentistry
  • Pharmacy
  • Dietetics
  • Podiatry
  • Medicine
  • Physiotherapy
  • Nursing
  • Radiography
  • Occupational
  • Therapy Speech
  • Pathology Optometry and
  • Veterinary Science

The test is conducted seven times a year in over 40 locations throughout the world, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai in India. In 2009, the test will be conducted in January, March, May, June, August, October and November.
The OET is made up of four sub-tests: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.
You receive results for the four sub-tests that make up the OET as one of five grades – A to E. A is the highest grade, E is the lowest.
There are descriptions for each grade on the printed Statement of Results you receive:

  • Very high level of performance
  • High level of performance; i.e., able to use English with fluency and accuracy adequate for professional needs
  • Good level of performance; however, not acceptable to a range of health and medical councils
  • Moderate level of performance: requires improvement
  • Low level of performance: requires considerable improvement

There is no overall grade; you receive a separate grade for each sub-test you take.
The written papers are normally scheduled in the morning starting at 9.00am. The Listening, Reading and Writing sub-tests are completed by 1.00pm. The individual Speaking interviews are timetabled for the afternoon, from around 1.00pm until 6.00pm. You must be available for the whole of this period; the exact time of your interview is sent to you with the detailed venue information.
Test fee for OET is Aus. $ 775
For an additional score report, the fee is Aus. $ 35.
