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

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 don’t have a given or family/surname, enter a single dash in the space for the surname/given name.

It’s important to remember that whatever name you use to register within myOET, will need to match the ID you use on test day.


First name:   John


Last name:   -

Note: 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.
