QUESTION OF THE WEEK…

What English Language Tests do AHPRA accept…?

AHPRA accepts the IELTS, OET, PTE Academic and TOEFL iBT. They will only accept results from these exams if they were obtained less within 2 years before the date you lodge your AHPRA application, unless you lodge your application for registration within 12 months of finishing your last period of employment. 

For IELTS you will need a minimum overall score of 7 and a minimum score of 7 in each four components.

For OET you will need a minimum score of B in each of the 4 components you are tested in.

For the PTE Academic you will need a minimum overall score of 65 and a minimum score of 65 in each of the four communicative skills.

For the TOEFL iBT you will need a minimum total score of 94 and a minimum score of 24 in Listening, 24 in Reading, 27 for writing, and 23 for speaking. 

Whilst there are several online versions of the English Language Test- some even run by OET and IELTS- AHPRA has informed us that they will not accept the results of these exams.
