Successful candidates receiving their Occupational English Test (OET) results from 19 September 2019 onwards will get a prestigious digital badge. Announcing this on their official website, OET now stands out as the first English language test for healthcare professionals that awards these e-badges.
Candidates who receive these badges will enjoy the convenience and security of sharing them online as they cannot be copied or tampered with.
