The OET Mini Mock Test takes 2 hours INCLUDING a live speaking session with a teacher. 

How to do the Speaking subtest:

When you open the test you will be asked to book this session for a date and time that suits you. Your speaking subtest doesn't have to be the same time you do the rest of the test (though it is a good idea!). Remember the booking times are in your local timezone and 24 hour time, so 1:00 = 1am and 13:00 = 1pm!

Before you start this session, please make sure:

  • you have strong, reliable internet 
  • you are using a laptop or desktop computer with Chrome browser
  • you have tested ZOOM on your computer before hand ( - email if you have issues with the test
  • you are waiting for an email invitation from your teacher 5 minutes before the speaking session is due to start
  • you click on the ZOOM link in the email invitation - and the session will open!

Please note: It is your responsibility to prepare your computer and your internet. You can cancel or reschedule your speaking session with 24 hours' notice, but if you do not show up or if you have technical issues on your side because you haven't prepared, you will need to pay a reset fee of USD$15.

How to do the Reading / Writing / Listening subtest:

Before you start these subtests, please make sure:

  • you are ready to sit for about 1 hour and 40 minutes (just like the real test!)
  • you have strong, reliable internet for this time
  • you are using a laptop or desktop computer with Chrome browser
  • your microphone and speakers are working

Please note that you CANNOT PAUSE the test BUT if you want to stop you can exit the pop-up window and this will cancel your progress so far; you will then need to start again from the beginning.
