I'm a doctor / nurse / pharmacist. Will this course help me?
While Reading & Listening tests are relevant for all medical occupations, Writing Case Notes and Speaking Roleplay Cards are provided for doctors and nurses only. However, even with reading and listening tests, the course still offers great value for money.
Are the sample tests in this course suitable for me if I am sitting for the OET paper-based test?
Yes. The format of these sample practice tests follows the OET format 100% so you can be sure that the questions are of the same standard as the paper-based OET test. Not only that, we have trial tested every single Reading paper, Listening paper, Writing paper and Speaking paper to ensure that they are of similar standard to the actual OET exam.
Are the sample tests in this course suitable for me if I am sitting for the OET on computer test?
Yes. First, you need to know that the OET on computer test can be taken at home (this is called the OET@home test) or at selected OET test venues (this is called the OET computer-based test). Both these versions of the OET test are online (monitored through remote proctoring) but the format is exactly the same as the OET paper-based test. All the rules and regulations governing the OET on computer test are the same as those governing the OET paper-based test. If you plan to sit for the OET on computer test, the Benchmark OET Course actually helps you get more familiar with answering questions on a computer so you can be more confident on test day.
What if my preparation is affected due to COVID-19?
We know there’s a lot of uncertainty around test dates and application cycles right now. Candidates are understandably concerned about whether the OET test is going to proceed at the test venue of their choice. Then there is the latest news that you may soon be able to opt to sit for an OET computer-based test at an OET test venue closes to you or even the home-based OET@home test. With all these new developments, if you purchase an OET Course from us and your plans change, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will pause your account until you're ready to start studying or give you a free extension until your new test date (whether that be a computer-based or home-based OET test). We also offer a 7-day money-back guarantee -- no questions asked!
If I'm struggling with a question, can I get help?
We’re happy to answer any questions you have about our material. Send us a message while you're studying (using the “Help” button), and we'll respond as quickly as we can.
How does the refund policy work?
This is a digital product so cannot be refunded once you access/open it. If you are unsure, you can start with either a Reading or Listening package at a lower price.
How many practice tests are included in the package?
There are 20 full practice tests each for Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking. That’s a total of 80 tests! You will be able to practise those multiple times within the validity period. The Reading and Listening tests are suitable for all OET professions, but currently, our Writing and Speaking sample tests are only for medicine and nursing (i.e. doctors and nurses)
Is Benchmark enough to practice for the OET?
In addition to Benchmark, we recommend using official practice material for the best OET preparation. But Benchmark Education does include everything you need to learn the test and the best strategies!
What types of payment do you accept?
Currently we accept credit cards, debit card and PayPal. We also accept Bank Transfer and Western Union Money Transfer. If you have trouble paying, email us at email@example.com, and we’ll walk you through the payment process!
Do you provide answers to writing and speaking tests as well?
Currently, we provide listening and reading answers along with their explanation so you can check the answers yourself. For the Writing and Speaking, we provide the Writing Case Notes and Speaking Role play cards for you to practise at home. Since the Writing and Speaking output are subjective, no answers are provided. However, if you need someone to check the letters you have written, just book an additional writing correction service from us and we will help you check your letters and give you feedback. For Speaking practice, if you need someone to practise with, just go online to our website and book a separate Speaking mock test. Our OET trainer will then meet you at the appointed time to practise with you! The best thing is, you can be sitting at home, and you can still practise OET Speaking online with us. It will also prepare you to take the OET Speaking exam through an online platform should you decide to take the OET on computer test later.
In addition, we are also providing reading training videos, vocabulary exercises and eBook free of charge.
How do the practice tests work?
Note that the OET Practice Tests are completely ONLINE with no books or printed papers. Practising these is quite easy as all questions have been well laid out with easy access to each section. Instructions are given in the course as well to guide you but it is so easy - you simply have to click on the test number to open any test and start it. They all come with an in-built timer to give you an exam-like experience.
The tests can even be done on Android and iOS devices as well, though we advise practising on a computer/laptop for best experience.
