I don't have a given/family/surname, what should I do?

Skip to: Section 2. OET on computer at a venue

Section 1. OET on paper

Quick Read:

  • If you don't have a given or family/surname name, add a dash when you register.
  • The name you enter must exactly match your test day ID.

When you register for a myOET profile, you need to enter a name. We have categories for First, middle and last names. However, we understand that you may not have a given or family/surname.

If you do not have a given or family/surname, enter a single dash in the space for the surname/given name.

For Example:

First name:   John

Middle:

Last name:   -

Note:

  • The name you use to register within myOET, will need to match the ID you use on test day.
  • Once you enter your name, you will not be able to change it through your myOET profile. You will need to contact Customer Service to make any changes.

 

 

Section 2. OET on computer at a venue

Quick Read:

  • If you don't have a given or family/surname name, add a dash when you register.
  • The name you enter must exactly match your test day ID.

When you book OET on computer you are required to enter your given name(s) (first and middle names) and family name (surname).

If you however do not have a given or family name (surname) simply enter a single dash (-) in the category you cannot complete.

For example:

Given name(s): John

Family name: -

Note:

  • The name you use in your OET account must match the ID you use on test day.
