OET DISCOUNTED GROUP
SGR is able to gather large groups of candidates every few weeks, from past and present students and via word of mouth, to access a discounted rate. Registration with the group closes on the Friday indicated in red below and is submitted the following Monday to OET for processing, which typically takes 5-7 working days.
Discounted groups are open for exams from July until December 2020. Not all professions are available on listed dates - please check the OET list for details.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1 - IS YOUR TEST DATE CRITICAL?
Please make sure you understand how the group works and have read the terms and conditions (linked above). As SGR submit applications to OET only once every few weeks there is a chance that the venue(s) and/or date(s) you desire become unavailable between submitting your form to SGR and SGR submitting to OET. We will contact you to select another date/venue should we become aware it is not available. It is for this reason we recommend booking well in advance. If the test date is critical then consider applying to OET directly, but at full price.
STEP 2 - REGISTER WITH OET
If you don't already have an OET candidate number (format 10XXXXXXX or 20XXXXXXX) then please register at the OET website. If you have an OET candidate number beginning '10' then to avoid any possible issues please ensure you can login to OET and the number is valid; if not recognised you may need to contact OET and/or re-register.
STEP 3 - CHECK VENUE AND DATE AVAILABILITY
When logged into the OET website, from 'My Dashboard' click on 'APPLY FOR THE TEST', select profession, desired country and date. If your selection is available then note these down as 1st preferred venue and date. Cancel and check again for a second date and/or venue if required - note these down as 2nd preferred venue and date.
STEP 4 - CHECK ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION AVAILABLE
Ensure you have the following information ready to submit during payment or communicate to SGR:
Full candidate name as used for OET registration;
OET candidate number;
Candidate email address as used for OET registration;
Candidate mobile phone/WhatsApp number including country code (optional);
1st preferred venue and date;
2nd preferred venue and/or date (optional);
STEP 5 - COMPLETE PAYMENT FORM BELOW
Determine how you wish to pay (see below), noting that the amount varies by payment method. The prices will be updated at the start of each group to reflect fees and GBP/AUD exchange rate changes.
