Yes, you can apply to have one or more sub-tests remarked. However, you must do so within 72 hours of your results being published. Please see the OET remarking policy.
The length of time the results are recognised as valid is decided by the authorities that recognise OET (e.g. boards and councils, government departments). Always check your authority’s website for details to make sure you know their requirements. The Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) also publicises their requirements on their website.
You should always check the English Language Proficiency Requirements of your regulatory authority. This is not a matter of OET policy.
If you are not a health professional working towards registration in an English-speaking context, OET may not be the most suitable test of English language for your purposes.
OET is an English language test that assesses the language and communication skills of healthcare professionals who seek to register and practise in an English-speaking environment. It is designed to focus on the communication needs of health professionals in the workplace and to provide a valid and reliable assessment of language skills in that setting. Regulatory authorities who recognise OET as proof of English language proficiency do so on that basis.
It is recommended to consult the relevant regulatory authorities before you decide to register for a test.
