Make sure you’ve prepared enough for the test in terms of question intelligence and also put in the adequate effort in practice. The amount of practice needed for getting 79, 65 or 58 marks in PTE varies from test taker to test taker. On the test, day reach your respective PTE Academic test center at least 30 minutes in advance. If you are going to test centre just on time can impede your performance. You don’t have to carry any stationary items like pen, pencil papers to the test center as PTE Academic is a computer-based test. For rough work, they give either an erasable notepad or booklet. You are not even allowed to carry your watch or any gadget inside testing room.
The first module you’ll attempt is speaking in PTE Academic, after speaking writing and after writing, Reading and at the end, you will have the listening module in the test. The test flow is SWRL.
When you start your test with speaking you are supposed to test your microphone and headphones. In speaking module, if your voice level is not up to the mark you may not get 79 and above marks in PTE Academic even with multiple attempts. Speaking slightly louder than usual can be highly beneficial. In the test room generally, 12 to 13 test takers sit for the test and your speaking section will always be disturbing, you must focus on back to back speaking questions and should be able to
hear your own voice. In your PTE Academic speaking module, we have 6 different types of questions
in that 6 questions. Personal introduction is not scored item. The first scored question type is Read Aloud. Repeat sentence is the 2nd question type. Describe Image is the third question type. Re-tell lecture is fourth question type. Many test takers score straight 90s in PTE Academic speaking as it is easy and if you follow certain rules getting 90 score never a big deal. Writing is second module you get 2 question types in writing module they are Summarize Written Text and Essay Writing. These 2 questions are very important for writing and Reading score as well. Summarise written text gives you marks in Reading and Writing modules whereas the essay gives you marks only in writing.
After speaking and writing test takers will do the reading section in this section there are 5 different types of questions. This particular module is all about accurately answering 14-17 questions in the
limited time. A lot of people score less than 60 marks in reading module. Your success in PTE Academic reading module is highly dependant on the clear judgment between the choice words.
Using collocations can be of some help with this module. If you have good grammar sense, you will be comfortable with this module to some extent.
Listening is the last skill in PTE Academic, before you move to listening you have an option to take a break of 10 minutes. If you feel you are already exhausted you can utilize the optional break or if you feel you are in the perfect state of mind to finish the test then continue without taking any break. Listening is all about dealing with 20 different short audios and answering eight varieties of questions. Summarize Spoken text is a very influential question in this section and it can come in 2-3 quantity. Remaining all questions are pretty much doable with little amount of practice and with some proven guidance.
