    The gang is quiet for a while. What's happening? No visa grants? with low number of applications, the grants should have been higher.

    Pearson Test Help!

    Hi Degsy, Yes they generally charge for mock tests which they check & provide results too. However there are sample tests available on internet for practise but they would not give you results. You tube has many tutorials for each section. Some tips 1/ Put your microphone above your nose so that your breath does not ruin your speaking recordings. 2/ Fluency is important. So even if you do not know what to say, say something. Fluency is more important than content. 3/ Please follow correct format of essay writing 4/ do not make typo error. While practising, turn off autocorrect or spelling flags. This will let you find you are of typing errors. 5/ Do not try to copy another accent. Pronunciation is more important than accent. All the best for your exams.

    I did not have birth certificate and my agent said that we can use passport & my school certificates. However, when CO contacted they asked my birth certificate still. I had to get this made on priority & provide. So better you do it before.

    IELTS help !

    Hi Orosci, i gave IELTS and got 8/9 in all sections except speaking. Then i gave PTE 4 times & achieved 86/89 in each section. I think speaking test in IELTs is little intimidating & dependant on the the person sitting in front of you & about his/ her perception about you. My speaking test was taken by an old lady who seems to be very angry & frustrated. This can be just my thought but i found speaking in PTE better. With little practice you can crack it & get great results.
