Title: All You Need To Know About OET - Avigna Learning Academy

OET is an English language exam that tests the
grasp of an individual over the English language
in every aspect regarding reading, writing,
listening, and speaking. However, dont mistake
this test to be just like another English
assessing test like IELTS and TOEFL, because
there are a few features that extensively
distinguish it from these tests. While it is
true that just like IELTS and TOEFL, the OET is
also a test that examines the English skills of
an individual who wishes to study or work abroad,
but here the individual has to belong to nothing
else other than the medical and healthcare field.
In addition, the OET test focuses not just on
the simple English language, but emphasizes on
the English communication required in special
healthcare professional settings.
WHO CAN SIT FOR THE OET TEST? As mentioned above,
the OET test is only for those who wish to set up
their career in the medical field. It could be
any of the 12 main healthcare professions
dentistry, dietetics, medicine, nursing,
occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy,
physiotherapy, podiatry, radiography, speech
pathology and veterinary science. WHAT DOES THE
OET COMPRISE OF? The OET comprises of 4 segments
reading, writing, listening, and speaking all
of which focus on medical related issues.

    because writing within the limits is very
    important or you start losing marks. You also

    skills. Research on different kinds of letters
    and layouts.

    and get acquainted with different

    on a single question.
  • Speaking You need to be very sure of what you
    are speaking within a given time limit. So, keep
    practicing on your speaking skills and let it
    look natural. Also, make
  • sure to finish what you want to say in a given
    time limit. You also need to know how
  • to keep the conversation going, and you also need
    to be a good listener here to be able to carry
    an effective conversation further. Last but not
    the least, practice looking into the eyes of the
    person you are speaking to. You need to look
    confident and bold while speaking.
