Call them every day after work on Skype just because it's ridiculous. It's frustrating because I'm in New Zealand at the moment and the only call centre open is in India so it's like getting blood out of a stone.. I recieved an email stating it was still unavailable on Saturday. One of the reasons I chose it was because they advertised a 5 business day turn around time..ahhhhhhhhh

Been reading this post with interest as I took my PTE a while back and got Superior as I had to get the 20 points to qualify.

I am a native English speaker but tend to get nervous. I did a lot of practise 2 weeks leading up to the exam. The one thing I luckily found out, pretty much the evening before my exam, was describing fractions

 

Good thing I checked coz 3 of my describe the image were based on fractions. So 1/4 is 25%, 1/5 is 20%, if they show 25% you should 'a quarter of the....'

Also, on the same lines, are simple graphs showing varying quantities and slopes : Gradual, exponential, constant increase, steady uniform trend and on and on and on.....

 

It's a test to see how you use English as a common language to express ideas. I mumbled and fumbled a lot but still scored 90,90,79,90 Made it through by the skin of my teeth!!!!!

Hi all

 

Yesterday I took the Pearson PTE test and within 14 hours I have received my score, which is thankfully the required Superior English level.

 

This is was the first test that I have taken, therefore cannot compare to ILETs. I can however say that I found it relatively easy and straightforward.

 

I did did buy the sample tests and would recommend this so that you are prepared for the format of the tests. To paint a picture for you, I should say that I have always had a good command of English, do not struggle with spelling and grammar and feel quite comfortable with all aspects of English. I don't, however, have any higher level quals than GCSE and have not studied English since school, over 22 years ago!

 

I would say say that unless your English is particularly poor, as long as you practice and prepare, you should not struggle to reach Superior level.

 

During the the test you can make notes. This was good for the listening section, but probably only if you can listen and make notes at the same time. I found the listening part harder than the others, but still received a score of 81 for that part.

 

Hope that helps someone. Please ask away if you have any questions.

 

Jane

My written discourse scored only 55 but must have done well in other areas but don't know how it's calculated. I scored 84 for writing. Third time lucky

Hi.  So I had my IELTS with 8.5 overall so superior, but lost out on 10 points on EOI as I had 8.5/8/8/7.5 ?

Is PTE the same, do you need a certain score in all to get full 20 marks on EOI?  

Thanks guys
