Why use SLC’s OET Placement Test?

If your school or university is preparing students for OET, the Placement Test gives you an accurate picture of their level in the four skills and how much work they need to do before sitting the test.

SLC’s Placement Test enables you to plan your course effectively by highlighting students’ skills mix and their strengths and weaknesses.
SLC was the first accredited OET preparation provider in the UK and Europe. We work with hundreds of candidates every year, preparing them to achieve their best score in OET Test.

Approved by OET

The SLC OET Placement Test has been approved by OET as part of our Premium Preparation Provider accreditation.
It consists of a combination of Medical, Exam and General English. It is not a mock OET test.

The OET Placement Test has been used successfully with hundreds of OET candidates. We know it works.

Taking the OET Placement Test

For the Listening, Reading and Writing parts, students receive a login to the SLC’s online learning portal www.slc-campus.com. They take the papers online; they are timed. For the Speaking test, each student gets an invitation to schedule a Speaking Test online, where they book a time that suits them. They need 15 minutes for the test. Before the test starts, they receive confirmation and full instructions.

The results

The results are reported using the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), used worldwide to describe language level.

We differentiate into low-, mid-, and high- levels within B2, as this category is a critical starting point for so many OET preparation courses. This gives an accurate picture of student levels. A typical result might be Listening high-B2, Reading mid-B2, Writing mid-B2 and Speaking C1, for example.

These results can be mapped against the OET, using the equivalencies set out below.

C2 A (450-500)
C1 B (350-440)
B2 (high) C+ (300-340)
B2 (mid) C (250-290)
B2 (low) C (200-240)
B1 D (100-190)
A2 E (0-90)


We send the results are sent to you and the students – if you wish – with a clear explanation of what they mean. We are happy to discuss how we can support you further, should you wish.
