OET Diagnostic Test



The Placement Test is required for potential students and students enrolling in all OET Preparation Courses provided by The Matt Christie Institute of Australia (MCIOA).

-You are responsible for being prepared for the test.

-Do not take the test if you are not feeling well.

-If you wear reading glasses, have them with you.

-According to MCIOA policy, re-tests are not usually allowed.

- It is important that a ‘True Result’ is obtained to enable us to gauge your current level of English language proficiency; although there may be a temptation to use spell checkers, the Internet, calculators, etc it is in your best interest to avoid these – remember the end result is not a ‘Final Grade’ but an assessment of English language proficiency.


This test is a requirement to enable MCIOA to offer you the most suitable course for your requirements.
