The listening sub-test of the OET is divided into two parts: Part A is a recording of a professional-patient consultation and Part B is a recorded lecture about a health-related topic. Each part is about 15 minutes, and the recordings are edited to include pauses in order to enable test-takers the time to write their answers.
