In: OET By: Meha Mittal

Medical professionals who want to pursue their career in Australia or New Zealand must pass either OET(Occupational English language Test) or IELTS. With very little knowledge about OET many choose IELTS. In my opinion one must be completely aware about about these tests before making the final decision. In this article I will bring out the differences between both these exams.


1) OET and IELTS are two very different exams.Though they both test English language skills but their methods are totally different. OET has medical context making  reading listening writing speaking much easier for theory laden medics. On the other hand Academic IELTS requires a very high level knowldege of English and is often termed as "gold standard ". Candidates who are thorogh in their field but not very stong in English should opt for OET.


2) OET targes workplace and thus offers greater benefits to candidates in their future employment while IELTS is general exam and aims at many professions.


3) IELTS is substantially cheaper than OET is offered at many places and more often  OET.


4) If you get a low score in one section of OET you only need to repeat that section while in IELTS you need to take the whole test again if you fail in one section.
