OET at Medcity

Here at Medcity, we offer online as well offline OET courses in order to accommodate the time constraints of working professionals who constitute the majority of our trainees. Though OET is offered to 12 categories of healthcare professionals, at Medcity we focus mostly on the training of nurses, as they are our dominant stakeholders. The exclusive attention on the training of the nurses has enabled Medcity to carve out a niche among the OET training academies of India.

Our regular offline package includes 1-, 2- and 3-months’ courses along with 15-days short term training. We also have exclusive exam preparation batches. Our online packages are highly flexible, specially designed to dovetail with your work schedule without the least compromise on quality or content.

What is OET?

The Occupational English Test or OET as it is popularly called is an English language assessment test created for the healthcare professionals. The OET can be taken up by 12 different healthcare categories: nursing, dentistry, dietetics, medicine, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry, radiography, speech pathology optometry, pharmacy, and veterinary science. The OET is owned by Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment Trust (CBLA) which is co-owned by Boxhill Institute and Cambridge English Language Assessment.

What is the OET test format?

The OET, like any other language test, evaluates the performance of the candidate under four sub-skills which are listening, reading, writing and speaking. The listening is a 45-minute test, followed by a 60-minute reading test. The writing tests last for 45 minutes and is the last test taken in this order. The speaking test, which lasts for 20 minutes, is to be taken in the second half of the day, post 1 pm.

Format of the test


  • The listening test includes 3-parts which tests different skills. Part A of listening requires you to answer 24 questions, which has note completion as the task. Part B and Part C of listening include multiple-choice questions.
  • The reading is a 60 minutes test which has matching and sentence completion as the tasks in Part A, followed by multiple-choice questions in Part B and Part C of reading.
  • The writing test involves the candidate in a letter-writing based on the case notes given of a patient. This is the only task and the candidate can take only 40 minutes to complete the letter with the first 5 minutes to read and go through the case notes.
  • The speaking test is to enact two role cards, each lasting 5 minutes. The candidate will take up the role of the health professional whereas the interlocutor (the person who will help you enact the role play) will take up the role of the patient or the bystander. In this test, you need to re-create the scenario of your everyday workplace.
  • If at all this information feels new to you, do not worry. All you need to do is register with us and get to know OET in more detail.

What makes OET different from other language tests?

Most other language assessment tests are for a general audience. This simply means that anyone irrespective of their professional background can attend the same test. But in the case of OET, the test is designed for medical professionals. This ensures that a medical or healthcare professional can easily identify the test scenario from his/ her everyday work experience. This factor makes OET highly favourable among healthcare practitioners.
