Attention Doctors & Nurses!
Do you fear face-to-face interviews? Or are you struggling to find a reliable OET speaking practice partner for private feedback? You are not alone! Acing an OET interview is a skill, not a talent, which means you can improve with practice, guidance, preparation and reliable evaluation. Be it nurses or doctors, our OET assessment services are proven to boost speaking skills, giving you everything you need to score an A Grade on the speaking section of the OET! Our professional speaking evaluation team has a strong record of organising hundreds of classroom OET speaking interviews and acting as a patient to provide reliable evaluation and feedback. Our expert teachers know how an OET interlocutor would play the role of a patient or their next of kin and what evaluation criteria the OET Speaking examiner would use to evaluate the recorded conversation.
We can help you predict and improve your grades with constructive live face-to-face private feedback with tips and materials on every role play card.
If you are a doctor or nurse and have been trying to record sample role-play practice for evaluation all by yourself or with your friend, who is not an OET expert in giving feedback, chances are you wouldn’t feel confident on the exam day and might even struggle to keep control of the interview process held in private during the exam. Not everyone knows how to play the role of a patient and apply speaking assessment criteria. Our OET Speaking Practice and evaluation course pinpoints exactly where in the speaking sub-set YOU need improvement allowing you to gain confidence with every small improvement. You can be a first-time nursing OET test taker looking for some sample simulated exam environment experience to record roleplay performance before taking the real test or a doctor who has taken the test before but couldn’t succeed in getting 350 or B grade. This speaking evaluation service course is going to help YOU!
Why choose Benchmark Education?
Our expert teachers can notice what you can’t. They are also quite adept in playing the role of a patient for evaluation. Identifying mistakes in our speech, even when we record it for preparation, is not easily possible. For nurses, things as small as how you greet a patient or respond to the patient’s concerns can affect their speaking score when passing through the assessment criteria. While it may be tempting to turn to generic free sample materials for preparation or some recorded videos and record your performance for evaluation, those would give you no way to pinpoint where you need help in your speaking sub-test–whether it’s clarity, fluency, choice of words, skills in grammatical accuracy, professional approach or level of engagement.
Our teachers are expert at locating your most common speaking mistakes and giving you the evaluation tools you most need to improve your role play performance during the course of interview. So no matter what’s holding you back from success as a doctor or nurse, our OET Speaking Evaluation course has got you covered!
How does the OET Speaking Mock Test Evaluation Service work?
The evaluation process is very simple. Once you book a timeslot with us, we will send you instructions, along with a recorded video, on how to join our online private one-on-one live conference room. All you need to do is follow those recorded instructions and appear online on the booked timeslot. One of the expert teachers will first introduce herself and give you an overview of the speaking test (in case you are new to the OET). After that, she will display a sample speaking role play card on your screen and give you 3 minutes to prepare. The interview will then continue for 5 minutes and then the teacher will record and share her feedback based on the assessment criteria and highlight your mistakes. She will also advise you how you could correct those mistakes. Later on, she will give you the second role play card and follow the same evaluation criteria and process to record your performance. Here is a simple flow diagram to explain how the Speaking Mock Test evaluation service would work.

* Recording will be made available within 24 to 48 hours after the mock test.
What exactly does our Speaking Mock Test provide?
Our expert OET teachers analyse your sample role play performance based on the OET Speaking Assessment Criteria and determine your projected grade on factors including, but not limited to, clarity, fluency, choice of words, grammatical accuracy, professional approach, information gathering and sharing, and level of engagement.
It’s not just about fixing mistakes in your recorded speaking, however! Through one-on-one private feedback, our doctors and nursing students learn not only what they’re doing wrong, but also how they can improve their speaking skills through preparation and tailor-made speaking tips. With this OET training course, students will learn how to take charge of the role play scenario and ensure a positive outcome by dealing with the patient during the role play. And when you see your speaking performance improve with every recorded role play card, your confidence and skills will increase manifold.
