Listening subtest

The Listening sub-test consists of three parts, and a total of 42 question items. You will hear each recording once and are expected to write your answers while listening. All three parts take about 50 minutes:

Part A

Remember, in Part A you listen to a recording of 2 consultations between a health professional and a patient (dialogue). You take notes while you listen. This part of the test usually lasts around 15 minutes. Use the subheadings to guide you. Write a word or short phrase. If doing the paper test, don’t waste time erasing. Simply draw a line through anything you do not want the examiner to read. Then enter you answer above or beside it. 

Part B

Remember, in Part B you listen to six recorded extracts. You answer one multiple-choice question for each extract. This part of the test usually lasts around 10 minutes and assesses your ability to identify the detail, gist, opinion or purpose and other communication functions of short extracts from the healthcare workplace.  Pay attention to the context information (the general who, where and what) that you hear at the start. read each question carefully. If you are doing a paper test, be sure to completely fill in the A, B, or C option you choose with the soft pencil so you answer is absolutely clear; and if you are changing your answer, be sure to completely erase your previous answer.

Part C

Remember, in Part C you listen to 2 recordings of a recorded presentation or interview on a health-related issue. You will answer six multiple-choice questions for each recording while you listen. This part of the test usually lasts around 15 minutes. Listening for key words in the audio to help know where you are in the audio. And the speaker will often use synonyms when discussing points. Again, if you are doing a paper test, be sure to completely fill in the A, B, or C option you choose with the soft pencil so you answer is absolutely clear; and if you are changing your answer, be sure to completely erase your previous answer.
