Managing your time in PTE plays an important role. Let’s talk about the Speaking module- Read aloud and repeat sentences, as we know that as soon as we are done speaking, we must click on the NEXT button and go to the next question, just so that no unnecessary sounds are getting recorded. In regards to the Describe image and Retell lecture, we must speak till the last second of the recording bar, as the contribution towards the speaking module is more. Again with Answer short questions, we must speak the answer in one word and go to the next question.
- Writing module- Summarise written text; make sure for the first 2 minutes you read the paragraph and understand what sentences you are going to pick and then type them. For the essay, the first 7-8 min must be dedicated to typing the template; while typing, think about the ideas; for the next 10 min, add your general views/ideas, and last, always leave 2-3 min for proof-reading.
- Reading module- Understand what the TIMEWASTER questions are, and do not waste time on them. For the Reorder paragraph, spend about 1-2min and Reading FIBs, both 2-3min.
- 7Listening module- There are 4-time wasters, and there are 4 important questions in listening. Any person wanting their desired score cannot use the traditional path of learning and solving every question. The points drastically vary between the important and least important questions in PTE. Important questions are summarising spoken text, Filling in the blanks, Highlighting incorrect words and Writing from Dictations. (4 questions). The Least Important questions are MCQ multiple answers, MCQ single answers, Highlighting correct summaries and Selecting missing words (As soon as the audio stops, click the most preferred answer and go next asap).
On The Day Of The Exam!!
On the day of your final exam, it is recommended to practice the Speaking module, just as a warm-up session 30-40 min before your exam, and never miss the INTRODUCTION SESSION. Always book your exam at the productive time of your day (some are morning people, while some are evening people). Analyse when you are the most productive, and always book your exam during that time. Do not forget your passport and arrive at the centre 30 min before your exam starts.
Revise All The Templates And Word Counts Before The Final Exam
It is recommended to revise all the templates word to word before the exam, even the punctuations in the template (to avoid any grammar errors), and also the word counts for Summarise Written and Spoken tests as well as the Essay.
Always Talk To Your Pte Experts Before The Final Exam Clear All The Doubts
Check Your Equipment And Surroundings While Giving Your Exam!!
Expect a NOISY ENVIRONMENT; at Englishwise, have exam like environment in all our physical institutes, wherein you are not sitting alone while giving the mock test similar to your final exam, so what I am trying to say is, in the final exam, expect about 10-12 other students to start the exam with you at the same time, that means when they are giving speaking, you are also giving speaking, which can create some sort of distraction, but DO NOT PANIC, if you are an English wise student, you have been through it, and you have trained yourself for that, others, please expect noisy environment and have a complete presence of mind.
It is highly recommended to check your microphones, laminated booklet, and marker that they provide during the test, check your microphone; your voice must be heard loud and clear, and there must not be any breathing sound or any background noise in it; check the marker see whether it is not dried up, always close the lid of the marker after every use; otherwise, the ink will dry.
If you have faced a technical issue during the exam, DO NOT PANIC; raise the issue then and there with the invigilator, and get your case number right there; it will work in your favour if you don’t end up getting your desired score; you can talk to PTE customer service and avail a free test with the help of the case number (there are some exceptions to this)
Lastly, be confident. If you have practised enough, nothing can stop you. Just relax and try to keep track of the time, and you are all set to ace your PTE exam! GOOD LUCK!!
