What Should I Bring to the OET?

OET Test Preparation Specialists

What you need to bring to the OET will be the same whether you are planning on sitting the exam at home or at a test centre.

Firstly and most importantly, you must bring the same piece of identification that you used to register for the test. That means if you booked the test with a passport as your ID, you need that passport; if you used an ID card, you need that same ID card. The identification must be a government certified form of ID, and must not have expired before you sit the test (i.e. it cannot expire between you booking the test and sitting it). If you are a refugee or asylum seeker without a valid form of identification or a passport available, then you will need to contact the OET team directly and investigate what options are available to you. There is more information available for those in this situation on their website.

You must also bring a 2B pencil, sharpened, that you will use to fill out the multiple choice sections. You should bring multiple pencils of this type in case one breaks or they become blunt.

You should bring either a plain pen (e.g. a biro) or a pencil and eraser for writing notes. We recommend bringing a pencil and eraser, in order to make maximum use of paper for note taking. That paper will be provided in a test centre – at home you will need to provide the blank paper yourself. You may also bring a clear, plastic water bottle.

If you are sitting the test at home, ensure that you do not have any other items on your desk or the walls around you – be it notes, posters, bottles with information printed on them, etc. The desk must be empty bar your ID, note paper and pencil / eraser. You cannot use a second monitor on your computer.

Whether you are sitting the test at home or at a test centre, you must not bring into the test any electronic device with a screen or communications capabilities. That includes smartphones, older mobile phones, MP3 players, digital watches, tablets, etc. You may also not bring a mechanical pen or pencil, a highlighter, correction fluid, correction tape, a bag, notes, or any other study materials. Clearly, you may not bring any dictionaries or thesauruses.
