There are multiple English tests which people give for student and migrant visa like IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, etc. In just three years, PTE – A (Pearson Test of English Academic) has gained a good amount of popularity among people who want to work, settle or study in Australia. In fact, the long waiting time to give PTE test speaks a lot about its demand in the market.
In short span of time, a lot of people are going for PTE for their English Test score requirement but most of the people are not sure about the test, its format or how the scores are distributed in different types of questions. This causes stress among the candidates, the reason could be probably they didn’t get the desired score and lot of money is involved.
PTE Academic is a well-structured exam for testing the English Language. One of the reasons for its popularity is that PTE Academic is completely different from traditional tests. It is purely an online, computer-based and timed examination. Although there is a lot of demand of it but this new kind of English test is also making many students stressed out which result in students getting less marks than they can actually achieve.
Here at kimbosabe, we have specified and defined certain tips that are followed by our students before attempting PTE Academic exam as mentioned below:
• What is this test all about: We have always stated this and even the definition of PTE Academic test is that it is a test of your command over the English Language and all the questions are directed only to test your English. This exam is not considering your knowledge of a particular topic. There are four modules in which they are testing your ability i.e. Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading.
• Read the instructions: It is always a good habit to read the instruction to understand what type of question it is and what they expect as an answer. The reason is that the sequence in which question-type will come first is in a random order. Hence, it is beneficial to read the instructions before attempting the question.
• Relax: It has been observed that many test takers feel nervous and end up hurry up to complete the paper as they are running against the countdown. Take a deep breath, relax and be calm during the examination. You will be just fine. Stress had never helped anyone in solving the problem. Overthinking can also have a negative impact as it can affect you psychologically.
• Rest properly before the exam: It is advised to manage your sleep properly as it is necessary to have sufficient amount sleep before going for the exam. Because if you are already tired and exhausted you won’t be able to score up to your potential. You do not want to give the exam with sleepy-eyed especially PTE Academic where you barely get 10 minutes optional break in between exam.
PTE Academic is an English Exam which is not as hard as it seems. I would say having a strict and focused preparation also with a right approach to attempt the exam, it is very much possible to clear the PTE Academic exam with your desired score.
