Your myOET account can be used to arrange your first test, apply for a resit, organize your applications, and view your results. Simply follow the instructions on the website.
It is crucial to remember the email address you have used to create your myOET login account since all communications from OET will be delivered to that address. Check your email on a frequent basis, not just the Inbox, but also the Spam and Junk folders, in case your test details have changed.
Step 2: Booking the correct test
- Examine your schedule, preferred test mode and location, and occupation.
- Choose the appropriate test according to your medical speciality.
- Proceed to the payment page.
- Fill down your credit card information on the secure screen to complete your booking.
Search for an OET testing centre near you or in a location that is convenient for you. Examine all of the available dates for the OET test as well. You should be aware that not all of the 12 OET exam occupations are available for testing in all locations on all dates. Make sure to double-check everything.
Choose at least three days for your OET test because the initial date you want to schedule may be unavailable if the test facility is already at capacity. Also, be prepared to retake the test if you do not attain the desired score on the first attempt. As a result, it’s a good idea to keep a couple of dates in mind.
Successful OET students have the English language and clinical communication skills necessary to provide high-quality, safe patient care.
This means better healthcare for everyone. A high OET score correctly represents communication ability in an English-speaking healthcare setting. OET was specifically designed to represent workplace tasks for the 12 healthcare professions, with problems imitating real-world workplace circumstances and measuring important language skills for healthcare.
Now that you know all the details of the exam booking, it is time to roll up your sleeves and start preparing for it.
All the best!
