OET Exam Tips

Are you serious about OET Training? Haven’t you heard someone say, “Despite of all my hard work, I failed again!?” Or, don’t you sometimes say, “I didn’t understood?” Don’t you often put a comma after “who”? Or, very often, you have heard or seen people write and speak as:

  • She has been commenced;
  • She was prescribed;
  • Mr John was prescribed.
  • She has been diagnosed since 2016.

These are serious errors!

Unfortunately, although you may not recognize the errors in these sentences, the OET assessor will do! There are over 200 Dos and Don’ts in OET Writing, Speaking, Reading and Listening. Here are some of them.

Look at some of them here:

Error 11 – Scheduled on / Scheduled for

Incorrect Correct
She has a follow up scheduled on 12th March. She has a follow up scheduled for 12th March.
His next visit has been scheduled on 30th of this month. His next visit has been scheduled for 30th of this month.

Error 27 – Your care!

Never write “your” care. Look at these sentences:

  • She has to be provided your care
  • She has to be provided care

Your care can confuse. It sounds like the “recipient’s care!” The correct usage is, “Ms Parker requires care and management at your facility.”

Error 55 – Prescribed or Commenced?

Consider these situations:

You prescribe medicine and the patient leaves your facility… (Discharged)

  • The patient may buy the medicine or not…
  • If he bought, he may start the medicine or no.. we don’t know.
  • As long as he is not in your observation, you cannot say he started taking that medicine!
  • Here you can write, “Metformin has been prescribed for Mr Parker.”

You prescribe medicine but the patient stays in your facility (No discharge)

  • As long as the patient is still under your care, you can make sure she started (commenced) the medicine or not…
  • Here you can write, “Mr Parker commenced medication on Metformin.”

Error 60 – No Experiments, Please

Many of you are highly creative not only in the clinical field but also in linguistics. That means, you are able to “invent” new writing and speaking styles!

  • At times you feel like “profound blood pressure” is better than “high blood pressure.”
  • Then you feel like, “Yours sincerely” is better than “Yours faithfully!”
  • Suddenly you feel like adding a phrase like, “This would mean that Ms Liza would not need to perform strenuous and hard work for the next few weeks” instead of its simple expression, “This would mean that Ms Liza would not need to perform strenuous and hard work for the next few weeks.”

The rest of the errors are here. Get ready for the course.
