OET English Preparation Test In Melbourne, Australia

Is this a test which assesses the medical knowledge of the medical professionals? 

Well, a large number of medical professionals when they hear of OET Test or OET Training then the first question that comes up in their mind is this: “Is this test going to assess the medical knowledge I posses in my own field?” In simple words it can be said that this test is not meant to asses the medical knowledge of any of the test taker. This is purely for the purpose of the assessment of the English level. This is meant for the evaluation of the fluency of the English of those who are looking for a career in medical or health care industry in Australia.

SO, is it similar to other international English assessment tests like IELTS / IELTS etc?

Well, it can not be said that they are similar to these tests. No. This test is different than IELTS and TOEFL because in OET English test the content of the test (on which the questions are based) will be dealing with the medical topics or health related topics suitable for the professionals like nurses, technicians, dentists, doctors etc.

This test, like many of the other international tests which are meant to evaluate the proficiency level of English in applicants, also has four modules. They are:

  • Reading test 
  • Writing test
  • Speaking test 
  • Listening test 

The test taker will have to score at least grade B in all of the modules in order to be able to get through or qualified in this test. The time duration for the test would be 3 hours. Interesting thing is this test is conducted for 6 times in many locations across the globe. There are about 40 locations from where you can have the chance to take this test and be qualified to work in Australia as a medical professional.
