FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FAQ’s by International Students in Australia regarding International English Language Test

Q
Which test is better for me; IELTS, PTE or OET?
A
It really depends on your strengths. All these 3 tests are quite different from each other especially in terms of content. Also, it is suggested that you check with your migration lawyer or related educational body to find out which test is applicable in your case. If you are still unsure, please consult the staff at EnglishWise.
Q
Which test is easier to pass IELTS, PTE or OET?
A
The first thing to be considered in this case is your desired score/band in the official exam. The main difference between IELTS and PTE is how they the official assessment takes place. IELTS can be subjective whereas PTE is an objective test. On the other hand, OET is a test for medical professionals and OET content mainly contains medical terminology. Your strength is again an important factor here. It is highly recommended that you get in touch with the consultant at EnglishWise to know exactly what test would be most suitable for you.
