Asta Achievers Preparation for OET Reading

The OET Reading Subtest lasts for one hour. You have fifteen minutes to answer the 20 questions in Part –A, and then 45 minutes to read the texts in Parts B and C and answer the 22 questions.

Task-Specific Tips – A

In Part A, you have four texts on the same subject. You have 15 minutes to find the answers to 20 questions. There are three or four separate tasks. Read the instructions for each task so that you’re sure you know what you have to do. The questions don’t follow the order of information in the texts. You need to read the question carefully and find the text which answers the question.

The first task asks you to scan the four texts and decided which one contains the information. Your answer is the letter A, B, C, or D. In the other tasks, you need both to find the information and to write it down. In these tasks, you may need to answer short-answer questions or to complete gaps in a set of sentences or notes. Be sure to write clearly, write only the words you need to answer the question and check that your spelling is correct.

Here are some pointers to remember as you complete Part A.

  • There are usually three different tasks (sometimes four). Read the instruction for each task carefully. Make sure you know what to do.
  • You have 15 minutes to answer the questions.
  • Always begin with the first task. The questions are designed to help you find your way around the texts.
  • In the first task, the answer is a letter (A, B, C, or D). using the headings and sub-headings to help you.
  • Underline the most important words in each question.
  • The questions don’t follow the order of the information as presented in the texts.
  • Sometimes there will be words in the question that help you find the answer.

Task-Specific Tips –Part B

In Part B, you have six different short texts to read. These are the type of texts that healthcare professionals need to read and understand in the course of their work. Each of the texts is on a different topic and there is no link between them. The layout of the text, the heading and the question you’re asked can all help you to quickly see the type of text you’re reading. It could, for example, be a memo or an email to all staff, or an extract from some guidelines, etc.

Read the question carefully and think about what you’re being asked. For example, you may be asked to understand the main point the text is making, the overall purpose of the text, or what you should do as a result of reading it.

Here are some pointers to remember as you complete Part B

  • There is no link between the six short texts.
  • The texts are all things you would read in the workplace.
  • Read each question before you read the corresponding text. Think about the type of text you’re looking at. Think about why you would read this type of text at work.
  • Think about the context and the question you’re being asked before you read the text.
  • Underline the main words in the question stem and option.
  • The words in the options (A, B, C) aren’t always the same words that you read in the text.
  • You’re being tested on your reading skills – not your medical knowledge. Don’t worry if the topic is unfamiliar, read the text to find the answer.
  • Don’t leave a question unanswered. If you’re not sure guess! You’ve probably understood more than you think (marks aren’t deducted for wrong answers).
  • If you can’t find the answers to a question immediately, don’t spend too long searching. You only have 45 minutes to finish Parts B and C, and you want to answer as many questions as possible. You can always come back to any difficult questions at the end.

Task – Specific Tips –Part C

In Part C, you have two longer texts to read. These are the type of texts that healthcare professionals might read as part of their continuing professional development. The texts are on different topics of general interest to a wide range of healthcare professionals.

There are eight multiple–choice questions to answer about each reading text, and the questions follow the order of information in the text.

Read the question carefully and think about what you’re being asked. For example, you may be asked to understand the writer's point of view, to identify the main point the writer is making, or to research studies. Sometimes questions may ask you about specific language point in the text, for example why specific words and phrases have been used, or what information in the text pronouns refer to/ to answer all the questions in Part C, you need to read both the questions themselves and the section of the text very carefully.

Here are some pointers to remember as you complete Part C

  • There are two texts on different topics to read in Part C
  • Read through the questions quickly before you read each text. Underline the main words in the question stem and in each of the options.
  • It’s a good idea to read through the questions before you read the text.
  • Think about the question you’re being asked.
  • The questions follow the order of information in the text.
  • Each question asks you about one paragraph or section of the text.
  • In some questions, you have to think about the function of a word that is underlined and bold in the text. You need to read the rest of the paragraph and understand the arguments in order to answer the question.
  • If you can’t find the answer to a question immediately, don’t spend too long searching. You only have 45 minutes to finish Parts B and C, and you want to answer as many answers as possible. You can always come back to any difficult questions at the end.
