PTE Practice vs Real Test

Recommended Posts

How does PTE practice test A compare to the real test, difficulty wise?

I took the first practice test last night and it went better than I expected. Although I found the questions quite difficult, with words I had no clue how to spell.

Would like to hear from those who took test A and how your score differed from the real test.

I found the practice harder than the real test.

I would book an exam based on those results.

I agree with @JetBlast

You’ve clearly sussed the methodology and should see similar results in the actual test. 

I was talking absolute gibberish in parts of my test, but the trick is to keep going regardless making sure your gibberish is grammatically correct, flows without hesitation, and follows a recognised format.

Thanks for the responses, I just took the test yesterday and got my result.

I found the test harder than the practice one.

One thing that especially threw me off was that the question types were in DIFFERENT orders than the mock test. I thought it was always the same order, but that was certainly not the case.

Very well done. I wish I got that good of a result first time. I think that is the best result I have seen posted on here!

It took me a few times and they do occasionally switch the ordering around.

The expiry on that is 2 years. But the department of home affairs consider them valid for 3.
