OET in Nigeria? Things You Should Know Before Registering for OET by katty : May 11, 2019, 09:11:46 AM
I woke up this morning to a renewed rumour that the much awaited English Test for Nurses and Doctors who want to migrate out of Nigeria, OET is finally here. Before you part with your money below are the things you need to know about OET Exam as compiled by

1. OET Is professionally tailored English Exam
: OET is an abbreviation for Occupational English Test. It is an English exam designed specifically for 12 healthcare professions: Dentistry, Dietetics, Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Radiography, Speech Pathology and Veterinary Science.  This English exam is set based on typical workplace scenarios in each profession.

2.People also fail OET:
There is this false beliefs that people don't fail OET. The fact that oet is professionally related doesn't automatically translates to passing it. You still need to study for it like you did for ielts.

3. OET Is not accepted in USA and Canada for Nurse migration
: Not all countries accept OET for the purpose of nurse registration and immigration. Canadian Nursing boards for instance accepts IELTS or CELBAN while CGFNS accepts IELTS and TOEFL for Visascreen, a key requirement needed to process your Green card after passing NCLEX-RN Exam.

Countries that accepts OET for Nurse registration include Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Ireland and UK. However, those who are heading to UK and sat for OET Exam might still need to sit for UKVI IELTS which cost #97, 000 for visa purpose.

4. OET Is Costly:
OET is relatively costly, it cost A$587 (Australian dollar) which is approximately #148, 000 when compared to other English exams.

5. Nigeria has not been listed among countries where OET can be taken:
As at this morning, Nigeria as a country has not been listed on OET website among list of countries where OET can be taken. For more information about OET and to register go to the official OET website
