I would like to wear a mask, or my venue has asked me to wear one on test day.

You may wear a mask if you wish, and also, we have advised all of our test venues that if they want you to wear a mask, they need to send you advance notice of this.

However, please note that:

  • You must remove the mask at all identification verification points during test day.
  • Venue staff may check the mask being worn and any spare masks brought by you at any time as required.
  • You cannot take spare masks into the test room.
  • You must ensure that the mask you wear does not make it difficult for you to be heard clearly during the Speaking sub-test. If the use of the mask impacts the recording of your Speaking sub-test, OET will work with you on a one-on-one basis to find the best solution for your circumstance.

    How is the speaking test going to be direct at the venue or at home. I am going to wear the mask while speaking, so asking. My test is on march 6th.
