Get your test day stationery kit decided now.
The OET test day regulations include information about stationery that is and isn’t allowed on test day. You can use any of the following:
- non-mechanical pens
- non-mechanical pencils
- pencil sharpeners
Your choice should be about what you feel most comfortable using and how you prefer to deal with mistakes you make. Do you prefer to cross out mistakes clearly in pen and carry on? Do you prefer to erase pencil mistakes and write the correction over the top?
For Reading Part B, you will need both a pencil and an eraser as this part of the test is computer-marked and specifically requires you to use a pencil.
You can take your stationery into the test in a clear plastic bag, similar to those used at airports for gels and liquids less than 100ml.
Start using your test day stationery now so it feels comfortable and familiar on test day.
