OET sample material for exam preparation
Now OET being accepted in almost all countries, I am sure that you feel a relief that you no longer have to meddle with IELTS graphs and essays for writing. Although writing module of OET is far easier, it can be tricky because you need to filter the information given in the case sheet and include only the relevant ones. Moreover, word limit should be between 180- 200 ; unlike IELTS there is an upper limit which you shouldn't exceed. So here we go with a sample letter which I prepared for my students. For more information and queries please do contact through mails or website.

Re: Ms. Betty Olsen, DOB 29/01/1926
I am writing this for an urgent admission of Ms. Olsen, a resident of Golden Pond Retirement Village, who is being transferred to the hospital in an ambulance due to persistent chest pain.
In the evening, Ms. Olsen was feeling slightly nauseous and did not have her meal. She also complained about shoulder and neck pain due to which she was unable to sleep. In spite of giving 1 Normison and 2 Panadol at 10 pm , she was distressed , pale and sweaty and BP level rose to 190/100. Moreover, she complained about persistent chest pain and so had to be shifted immediately.
The client was feeling tired and weak this morning and was confined to bed. GP had been contacted and had promised to visit tomorrow after surgery. However, since the condition worsened, we couldn’t wait until then.
It should be noted that Ms. Olsen is allergic to penicillin and is a known case of Hypothyroidism, Hypertension and Glaucoma. She suffers from arthritis in hands as well. She is on daily medications of which the details are attached.
As her night nurse at the retirement home, I am very familiar with her health condition . So in case of any further assistance please feel free to contact.
