What is the Occupational English Test?

The Occupational English Test evaluates the English language competence of people who have trained as medical and health practitioners in one country and wish to gain provisional registration to practise their profession in an English-speaking context. In most cases, applicants are subsequently required by their professional board or council to sit a test of professional knowledge. The test is currently used by governing bodies of the professions at state and national level in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Each board or council determines the result required from candidates to meet the language competency standards required in order to function in their profession.
