OET Results 2022
Many candidates who have taken the OET frequently have questions concerning their results and when they can access them.
The OET is conducted on twenty-four specified dates throughout numerous major cities in India. After that, the results become accessible within fourteen to sixteen business days after the date on which the examination has been conducted. Therefore, healthcare workers who succeeded in taking their Occupational English Test (OET) can access their results.
The candidates can view their OET results by logging into their OET accounts. They will receive a statement of their results that includes their scores on a scale of 0 to 500 for each of the four subtests.
Bearing in mind the accessibility problems caused by the pandemic, OET at Home has been launched by the organizers of the OET exam. This allows candidates to take the exam from the safety and comfort of their homes instead of a test center. So far, OET at Home is only available for the disciplines of medicine and nursing, but the test conductors hope it makes it accessible for other disciplines too. This undertaking was a step to ensure that the pandemic does not become an obstacle to the aspirations of numerous healthcare professionals who wish to study or seek employment abroad and require OET exam results as part of their application process. This article is dedicated to addressing all sorts of queries pertaining to OET results.
Availability of the OET results
The availability of the results varies depending on the format of the examination. Candidates should bear in mind that for those writing the paper-based version of OET, results on paper are accessible 14 business days after the exam, whereas, for those taking the computerized version at a testing center or at home, OET results are published 16 business days after the exam date.
Viewing the OET exam results
Candidates must go to the official website in order to obtain their OET results. To view their scores on the dashboard, they need only log into their “myOET” account. Results can be accessed under the heading of MY TEST HISTORY. Candidates can check the results for each subtest by going to the respective grade and scrolling downwards.
From their profile dashboard, the aspirants can view, download, and print their electronic statement of results. It is to be noted that the test results will not be delivered via fax, phone, or email. On the official website, https://www.occupationalenglishtest.org, test takers must input their OET login information in order to access their online OET accounts, where their OET scores will be displayed. Additionally, candidates can access their online profile to download a paper copy of their OET statement of results.
Grading of the OET exam
Each of the four subtests that make up the OET exam—Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening—is graded on a scale from 0 to 500 in increments of 10 points. Candidates should be aware that the OET DOES NOT publish a final score for your OET performance. The candidate’s numerical score is subsequently translated into an individual corresponding alphabet grade for each subtest, ranging from A (Highest) through E (Lowest).
OET Assessors are randomly given Listening Part A and Reading Part A answer booklets to mark. Reading Parts B and C answer booklets are automatically scored after being scanned by a machine. To eliminate any conflicts, audio files and scripts for the Writing and Speaking sub-tests are distributed and graded at random by multiple experienced OET assessors. Candidates can view the complete score reporting method on the OET official website by clicking the link provided above. Candidates can request a re-evaluation of the marking of their answer sheets if they are not satisfied with the outcomes of their exams.
Benchmark OET scores
One important query faced by several candidates taking the OET exam is whether there is any benchmark or average score that one needs to attain in their OET results. The answer to that is that there is no average or good OET score as such. However, there is a general expectation for candidates to usually score above 350 marks in each of the components comprising the OET exam in order to qualify for a host of great opportunities in the healthcare professions. It would be best if candidates could check with the concerned authorities, the medical board, or the council, to find out what scores would be deemed acceptable to them and would match up to the present eligibility trends and demands of the market.
Validity of the OET exam results
Test takers frequently believe that the validity of their OET exam results is only good for two years. This is not accurate. As with other exams, the Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment Trust (CBLA), the body which conducts the OET, does not determine the test’s validity; rather, the regulatory bodies that need the OET scores decide whether the scores obtained by a candidate are valid or not.
The OET exam’s validity period is not specified on the official OET website either. Candidates must inquire about the length of the predetermined validity of the OET results from the relevant authorities (e.g., boards and councils, government departments) that recognize the OET exam.
There is no overall validity of the OET exam. However, it is accepted in multiple countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, Maldives, Malta, Namibia, New Zealand, Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, Spain, Ukraine, United Kingdom (UK), United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the United States of America (USA) with the concerned medical council or board in each country holding discretionary power as to whether a candidate’s score provides an adequate indication of their proficiency over the English language as used in the healthcare arena.
Re-grading of the OET exam results
If candidates find that the results of the sub-tests are unsatisfactory and strongly believe that their performance in the exam was better than what their grades state, a request can be made for re-marking of their exam. A request for re-marking should be made within five working days of the results being published. Re-marking and appeal fees will be refunded in their entirety if the grades are found to change as a result.
