Why some OET tests are Profession specific
The OET is a test of English language ability, not of medical knowledge, and our test developers take care to minimise areas where candidates may use prior knowledge rather than language skills to respond. The OET Listening and Reading sub-tests are therefore not profession specific. They are common to all candidates and focus on a variety of issues of general medical and health interest. While some topics may include content that is familiar to one particular health practitioner's area of experience and expertise, the language tasks and questions associated with the texts are designed to test language knowledge and ability, over and above the candidate's knowledge of that field.
The OET Writing and Speaking sub-tests are profession specific in the sense that a candidate's profession determines which test materials they are given. The reason for this is that the communicative skills of writing and speaking provide opportunities for candidates to draw on their professional role in order to demonstrate their level of ability to communicate in common workplace situations. For example, all medical professionals conduct consultations with patients/clients, but they are likely to need to engage with those patients/clients about different issues in different contexts. Recent indicates that preparing for OET helps make candidates ready for the workplace and increases their confidence in communicating with patients and colleagues.
