OET Test Dates 2020

It was recently announced that there will be 22 OET test dates in 2020, with one test in both January and February and two tests a month from March to December.  With OET being offered in 40 countries at over 130 venues, an increased number of test dates is great news for all test potential takers as it means you have more chances to sit the test at a time and place that is convenient for you.

When should I take the OET?

 Due to personal situations like a pending job offer or immigration, you may be under time pressure or have a deadline for when you have to sit the OET.  However, it is important to take as much as time as you can to prepare for the test to make sure you are ready and to start your preparation as early as possible.  

Doing so will mean that you will feel confident on test day and will minimize your chances of having to repeat the test.  With more frequent OET exam dates in 2020, you can choose a date that fits both your circumstances and allows you to take the time you need to prepare.

How do I know when I’m ready to take the OET?  

It is important to work on both the skills you need for each part of the test as well as your test taking strategy.  E2Language offers one-to-one tutorials and live classes that can help you with both of these areas.  

In tutorials, our expert tutors will give personalized feedback about your strengths and weaknesses so, no matter the OET test date you choose in 2020, you will go into your exam feeling prepared and confident.
