About the course

When you login, the timer starts. You have 40 minutes for the Listening and 60 minutes for the Reading. The format and question types in the Listening and Reading papers are the same as in an official OET test. The listening automatically plays. You cannot pause the audio track or listen to it again.

When you have finished, you have some time to check your answers. When you are happy or when the timer is up, you submit your answers. You then see your scores on the Results pages, along with grade we predict you would score.

When you login to the OET Writing paper, the timer starts. You read a set of case notes and write a letter based on them, just as in the official test. You have 45 minutes to write your answer. You cannot stop the timer. At the end you submit your answers.

An examiner then marks your letter using the official OET writing criteria: (1) purpose (2) content (3) conciseness and clarity (4) genre and style (5) organisation and layout (6) language.

OET Medicine and OET Nursing Speaking sub-tests take place on Zoom. SLC schedules the OET Speaking test with you and an examiner at a convenient time. At the agreed time, you login and you take part in two role plays following the same format as the official test. The test takes between around 20 minutes.

At the end, the examiner marks you using the official OET Speaking criteria, both linguistic – (1) intelligibility (2) fluency (3) appropriateness (4) grammar and expression – and clinical communication (1) relationship-building (2) understanding and incorporating the patient’s perspective (3) providing structure (4) information-gathering (5) information-giving.

You receive a test report which shows your scores in the 4 sub-tests, including the criteria scores in the Writing and Speaking papers. You also see a predicted grade in each of the sub-tests, so you can see how close you are to the grades you need.

If you take the test in a quiet space where you are not disturbed, then your scores will reflect your level.

The tests were written by experienced OET test writers, so you know the content is very similar to an actual test.

Taking a practice test is an excellent way to see your current OET level and your strengths and weaknesses. You then know where to focus your study and practice before taking the official test.
