As you know, the OET exam changed in September 2018 to OET 2.0. This change can seem daunting but the main thing to remember is that the tests have not become harder.Essentially, it is just their format that has changed, so there is nothing to worry about!
One of the biggest changes to the format can be seen in the Reading tests. We will outline those changes and give you the information tips you need to make sure you are properly prepared for the new reading tests. Read on and you will find all the tips you need to master them
As you are probably aware, the previous reading module was comprised of 2 parts: part A and part B. The updated reading module is made up of 3 parts: part A, part B and part C. So that you are clear about what is coming up, below is a simple outline of the format for the OET 2.0 reading test
Part A is basically the same as the original part A: You will have 4 short texts to read about one health-care theme. There are some small changes to the format. There are 20 questions in the form of competing sentences, matching phrases and simple short questions. You are being assessed on the ability to locate information. OET candidates finds Part A easier now as compared to the past
Part B is where the main change takes place. There will be six short texts (100-150 words each) set in workplace contexts such as emails, policy documents or manuals. You will be assessed on your ability to understand the keys points and messages conveyed.
The answers will be in multiple choice format with 1 question per text. You will need to understand what type of text you are reading, and the vocabulary used. You then just have to identify the correct answer for the question related to the text. Not so hard really!
Part C will be very similar to the ‘old’ part B. You will be required to prove a deeperlevel of comprehension, understanding the meaning and giving your opinion abouttwo healthcare related texts (800 words each). There are 8 multiple choice questions for each text
Part B and C will be taken in the 45 minutes that were originally given for part B.
Even before the changes, a high proportion of OET candidates failed to get their registration as a result of failing to achieve their grades in the reading module. Many of them struggled as they did not have the right materials and samples to practice or they prepared using a reading test that did not meet OET exam standards.
This is even more of an issue now that the test format has changed, and it is extremely important that you are using up-to-date revision materials that are in line with OET 2.0 standards and of excellent quality. Many students are still using the revision materials and practice tests designed to prepare for the previous OET exam and this is where they may well fall-down when faced with the new format outlined above.
