WHAT IS OET?
The Occupational English Test or OET, is for healthcare professionals. It is the English language test, and it assesses the language communication skills of the professionals who want to practice and register in an English-speaking environment. OET is available for the healthcare professionals who are from the professions of occupational therapy, veterinary science, dietetics, podiatry, medicine, speech pathology, pharmacy, nursing, dentistry, radiography, optometry, and physiotherapy.
The councils and regulatory healthcare boards of different countries recognize the test of OET. These countries include Ukraine, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Namibia, Ireland, Dubai, and the UK. OET is also recognized by The Immigration New Zealand for all visa categories where an English test may be required and the Australian Department of Home Affairs. In a demanding healthcare environment, OET is used as proof of a candidate’s ability to communicate effectively in many organizations that include universities and hospitals.
Under the guidance of NOOSR or the National Office for Overseas Skills Recognition of Australia, Professor Tim McNamara designed OET in the late 1980s. For keeping up the test with current practice and theory in language assessment, it has been developed and researched continuously. This work has been done by Cambridge Assessment English and by the University of Melbourne’s Language Testing Research Centre. CBLA or Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment now owns the test, and it is a venture between Box Hill Institute and Cambridge Assessment English.
With an emphasis on communication in health and professional medical settings, OET provides a reliable and valid assessment of all four language skills are Speaking, Reading, Listening, and Writing. The test of speaking takes approximately 20 minutes while listening, and writing both take 45 minutes each. The test of reading takes around an hour. For the scoring of OET, there is no overall grade. A numerical score in 10-point increments from 0-500, e.g., 350,360, 370 is given to the candidates for each of the four sub-tests of OET. Ranging from A (highest) to E (lowest), the numeric score is mapped to a separate letter grade.
OET can be taken at different test venues around the world. This test is available 14 times per year. Approximately 16 business days after the test, the results of the test are published online. Separate grades are given for each sub-test. The results of the test are considered valid for up to two years. Most of the recognizing organizations require that for each sub-test, candidates achieve the requisite grades in one sitting and that the candidates also have at least a grade of B in all the sub-tests.
