    @bait0211 Hi share ko lang po experience ng husband ko. 2 weeks din sya nag prepare and he got 70++ sa lahat ng modules. I suggest na bili ka ng online practice exam nila, big help daw po yun.
    At sabi din sa expat forum, pag nakakuha ka ng 6 sa ielts, Most likely ay makakakuha ka ng 65++ or 7 band score equivalent sa ielts kahit konting time ka lang nagprepare.
    Nakakadismaya nga po talaga ang ielts at ang tagal pa ng result kagandahan ng PTE, 5 working days lang may result na.

    Good luck and wag ka lang mag papanic daw. Lalo na if you missed something out, just move on dahil marami pang items na pwedeng makabawi. Review mo din or atleast familiarize with the process and pagkakasunod sunod ng exam para medyo alam mo na ang ieexpect mo sa susunod na tanong. Hth.

    Thanks @TTam. Grabe kakahinayang nga sayang ang time. Nagpatumpik tumpik ako sa paghihintay sa NSW. hehehe. Pero no worries I know (feeling positive) kakayanin ang PTE. Eto kakabili ko lang nung online practice exam. Binabasa ko pa yung mga Tips sa website. Once familiar na ko sa pagkasunod-sunod, I'll try one sa weekends then pag nag ok, magbook na ko for my exam. Galing naman nakapagsubmit na kayo ng EOI. Invite na yan kasunod antaas ng points nyo. :) San nagreview si hubby mo sa PTE?

    @bait0211 Sana nga po mainvite na..

    Online lang din po sya nagreview, yung Gold Kit ba yun. Hanap ka din ng mga website na pwede mo pagpractisan, kasi konti lang yung nasa Gold Kit din eh, parang di enough at yun din yung nasa offline practice test nila.

    Try ko search yung mga link na ginamit nya before. Ako kasi tagahanap ng mga practice test, sya naman tga review. Haha! Teamwork lang.

    Hello po! I'm determined to take the exam as well however the next schedule that is available online is May 21. I am hoping that there is an earlier schedule but unfortunately that's the latest that they have here in SG. Please help to share your experiences because hindi ganon karami ang thread and advises for this exam e. What review materials did you use guys? Meron pa akong 2 weeks to prepare. I am planning as well to take the paid practice exam on Saturday?

    @filipinacpa: sabay mo ng binili yung dalawang practice exam? may discount di ba pag dalawa na agad?

    Guys, I am hoping for your kind assistance and sana pumasa na tayong lahat. :)
    Yung Gold Kit package din po ang binili ko, mas makakamura kasi $59.99 lang lahat including the sample questions for every module. I used yung McMillan review set yung link po niyan is naka share na dito sa.. then yung sa ptepractice po nila.. tapos how to describe graphs and writing essay, same lang sa ielts ko. I used simon and writefix. I just go on reading to get ideas do they construct in describing graphs and discussing essay.

    Goodluck! Sana talaga makagraduate na. Grabe yung gastos kapag naiimagine ko and yung time na super precious!

    Btw, I took the exam at Bright Centre in Tektite Bldg in Ortigas. May isa akong kasabay na nag-take. I came first then I requested for the test administrator if she can place the other examinee somewhere in the other corner. Lol. Buti nalang pumayag kundi medyo mas magiging awkward kung talagang katabi ko siya. Haha.
