OET CEO Sujata Stead said:
‘These are really challenging times, but learning doesn’t have to stop. We’ve developed these weekly challenges for ambitious OET candidates who need to prove they can communicate effectively and safely in a healthcare setting. The challenges will allow candidates to continue to improve their English language skills and get them ready for when tests become available again. They will help candidates to build confidence and increase their chances of passing OET when the disruption ends.’
