What is OET?
In many English-speaking foreign countries, including the UK, the USA, Singapore,Australia, New Zealand, and so on, healthcare professionals are required to demonstrate their English language proficiency to gain work opportunities in the healthcare sector. This is where the Occupational English Test (OET), an internationally acclaimed test of English language proficiency, is utilized to evaluate the English language skills of a healthcare professional.

OET Eligibility Criteria: Healthcare professionals who have finished their foundational education in medicine,nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, or other related fields are eligible to take OET.These professionals include doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals. Numerous healthcare boards, councils, and employers in the private healthcare sector accept OET results as they apprehend the healthcare professional’s communication skills even in a stressful medical emergency.

OET Exam Pattern: Like most English language proficiency tests, OET also has 4 sections that contribute to your final score. They are

 ➢ Listening: You will be given 45 minutes to listen to various healthcare-related subjects that are divided into 3 parts and will have to respond accordingly.

➢ Reading: Lasting around 60 minutes, you will be asked to read passages related to the healthcare sector and assess how well you can comprehend them by examining your answers.

➢ Writing: This section requires the candidate to write a letter based on a healthcare scenario, proving the appropriate usage of language and terms in 45 minutes.

➢ Speaking: This is the shortest section of the test, lasting around 20 minutes. The candidates are requested to play out a profession-specific conversation with a simulated patient, testing how smoothly the communication flows.

 OET Grading System

The overall is determined by how well you do in each section, respectively, with grades starting from the highest being A and the lowest being E. Oftentimes, many organizations expect at least a B grade from OET applicants
