OET: OCCUPATIONAL ENGLISH TEST>> TIPS & TRICKS

Reactions: 


Remember, they're only evaluating english at your workplace, not your dental knowledge.

KEY FACTOR is a positive attitude to the exam, cos there is very less to prepare for such an exam. These kind of exams require you to be more relaxed than get worked up.

WRITING
* Check various reference letters online- basically be familiar with the PATTERN
*Be BRIEF... its not a case sheet writing
*Have your address/reg no, patients D.O.B/address/, date, signature... etc (constant factors)
*you should have an intro describing patient n complain
*you should have the relevant history (dental/med/drug if imp) and clinical/radiographic findings that you do know
*Request update on treatment (optional)
*Mention to 'contact you for any further queries or additional information on patient'.
*If referral is for a medical consultation, then describe briefly date of procedure, the procedure itself, selected tooth, LA admin(if any), post op complication, post op medication, etc

READING

*Its just like the comprehensive exam taken throughout our school days- The only thing diff is that its medical topics instead.
*Its very direct, you can read again to confirm
*Answer to the point!


LISTENING

*Again pretty much the same as reading- very direct. And just keep your ears open.
*Most common mistake done- WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT P***AGES THAT ARE OVER, cos that would affect your ATTENTION for next exercises 


SPEAKING
*Here they'll judge how comfortably you handle english with a patient
*Be very RELAXED.
*Use the FULL time given to think, scribble your points and then start to converse.
*Be patient, HEAR all that the patient (examiner) has to say.
*Speak slow- u need to be CLEAR
*Ask leading questions, like you would in a practice
*Be POLITE, do not offend them by saying eg. "You/your kid has bad oral hygiene, etc"
.... instead try saying things like "Oral hygiene is fine, but it can be further improved by"...
*Always be CALM and CONFIDENT... Remember you are a doctor (its ok even if you dont know full treatment)
*Recall patient for review
*SMILE always!
*Examiners are nice people.. so DONT be prejudiced
