It is always advisable to keep track of all the necessary information, requirements and guidelines before appearing for any test and the OET is no different. At times, failing to adhere to the guidelines or failing to reach the test centre or uploading the wrong documents can open the gateway wide for the uncalled for inconveniences and unnecessary hurdles. Hence it is always wise to get acclimatized to all such details.
All the best!
