Ruth McEwanHiI'm a teacher of migrants to Australia and so am pretty familiar with the OET. I've also attended a workshop on it. I've trained doctors and nurses from overseas in preparation for their English test in order to practice in the health industry here.The OET is becoming more and more trusted in Australia. there are 2 other options - IELTS and ISLPR. The IELTS score for nursing even is very high - 7.5. I had a German paedeatric nurse who had already been nursing in a reputable London hospital for 2 years who was struggling to get the IELTS score. I suggested she take the ISLPR as it is the most communicative and natural face to face test or English proficiency and of course the assessor makes sure that the texts used in the test are industry specific.But, in short, the OET is most in use for doctors, and becoming more and more accepted. You can reply with more questions if you likeKind regardshi ruth,

AnonymousHello my name is Fransiska Hutahaean, I am a medical doctor and sat OET last March in Melbourne.My experience is I have difficulty in finding OET stuff apart from what I can bought from OET CAE. Because of that, I tried to create a blog that contains my OET stuff. Writing that I wrote and corrected by my friends ( 2 of them are English teachers ) and speaking phrases which I wrote based on my practice with my friends in Launceston ( we don't have a course for OET in my town ).So, if you want to browse my blog, probably you can find some resources that may help you, I will write the blog regularly until I have no materials to write.Here is my blog address :
