The OET Test
The OET Test
Unlike other general or academic English tests, our test has been developed specifically for 12 healthcare professions.
Who recognises the OET Test?
Regulators, hospitals & universities in the UK, the US, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and Singapore recognise and trust the OET Test as proof of ability to communicate effectively.
Complete a writing task specific to your profession such as a document of referral, advice or a letter of transfer or discharge.
Engage in a profession-specific role-play, with the interlocutor playing as your patient or carer.
What makes OET a global leader in English language assessment?
Our test accurately reflects a candidate's ability to communicate in an English-speaking healthcare workplace
OET reports a scaled score (from 0 to 500) and a letter grade (from E to A) for each individual sub-test. OET does not report overall scores or grades.
Developed for 12 healthcare professions
We've designed our test to match the language healthcare professionals will use every day in healthcare settings, so they’ll be equipped to communicate easily and effectively with patients, colleagues and healthcare teams.
Backed by research, built from research
Our test is underpinned by ongoing research from leading academic institutions, including Cambridge Assessment English and the University of Melbourne.The reliability of the Listening and Reading sub-tests is reported using Cronbach Alpha, and the reliability of the Writing and Speaking sub-tests is reported using Spearman Reliability.
