Hello. To improve your Writing scores you need ace all tasks affecting writing such as SWT, SST, WFD, FIB (drop down, type the missing word) and Essay. I have sent the reviewers I used to your email, please check your inbox too.
SWT - I make sure I follow the word count and summarize in just 1 sentence. You need to make sure you capture the key word/s and main idea by using complex sentence. Sometimes if mahirap intindihin ung passage, I go to the conclusion then re-write in my own words na lng. Most of the time conclusion is in the last paragraph. Nung exam ko ung isa sa SWT ko is parang 3 reasons why American English is a dominant language parang ganyan. Each paragraph elaborates each reasons so I just summarized in one sentence containing ung 3 main reasons na un and I tried to compose a complex sentence to explain briefly each reasons mentioned. (e.g. The three main reasons why American English is considered a dominant language are X which blah blah, Y which is blah blah and Z which blah blah) Tipong ganyan. Sorry hindi ko na maalala ung saktong sinulat ko. Try to ask yourself questions like "Who did what?" When or How it happened?" then make sure your sentence can answer those questions .
SST - I used somewhat same strategy sa Retell Lecture pero mas madali para saken ung ngsusulat kesa sa ngsasalita kasi mas mahaba ung oras dito. I use template lang but I play around lalo na at madami nmn ako nakuha sa recording. Else, I use fillers lang pag wala ako masyado naintidihan just to make sure I meet the word count as a last resort.
" The speaker mentioned about KEY TOPIC. Firstly, he/she mentioned that KW1. In addition, he exemplified (use exemplified as applicable lang else use other word/s) that KW2. Moreover, he/she cited that KW2. Overall, the interview/lecture was entirely clear and very interesting which can be used as specific reference for future studies."
WFD - This is easy. You make sure you get all the corrects words (Order, spelling, etc), you'll easily earn 30 points kasi usually 10 words kada sentence and you'll get 3 of these most of the time. Though nung recent take ko hindi ko ito na-ace, I am pretty sure may 4 words in total ako na sounds like lang isinulat ko but to my surprise I still got 90 sa writing. Mauubusan na kasi ako ng oras nun so parang ngpanic mode ako, buti nakaabot nmn ako na makatapos, cguro a few seconds lng natira saken. So I think even if you mess up here but you ace the rest you still have a chance to get Superior. But strongly recommended you ace this one. You just listen carefully and type kahit mali mali spelling then saka mo ayusin later on.
FIBs - Ung type missing word nung exam ko may 2 words ako na hinulaan ko lang. Pero this one should be easy as long as you focus and listen carefully and masabayan mo ung recording while you type the answer. Try to ace this one too.
Ung sa drop-down, familiarize yourself with collocations. I make sure na logically correct ung word na pipiliin ko by reading the passage. Wala short cut here, you have to understand the mood of the writer for example to know what appropriate word to select (negative ba or positive). May mga practice samples sa reviewers that I'll share with you. Galing un kay Ms. Hilda.
Essay - I use Steven Fernandez' template but not exactly kung anu ung nasa template. Kumbaga ginawa ko lang sya guide para mabilis ako makapgumpisa ng essay. Follow E2 languange structure din.
Katatapos nyo lang mgmedical, pede magtanong? Ng aalala kc mister ko bka mataas sugar nya at cholesterol kya after 2 weeks from now p plan nmin mgmedical. meron kc sya history n ngshoot up ung cholesterol nya at sugar pero d sya ngmamaintenance n gamot kc npapababa nmn nya with proper diet at exercise. Ask ko sana if kasali un s factor s medical. inaalala ko bka matagalan kmi at mgkproblem kung d agad ngpamedical.
Hello. Yup, hindi pa ako naka-lodge but we already did our medical, this week hopefully may result na. Planning to lodge over the weekend na kasi hindi ko magawa on working days. I just want to make sure all our docs are ready na para i-frontload ko na lahat. Ok lng nmn na naka-lodge ka na para nakapila na visa application nyo.
Actually, wala ako idea at first kung check din ung cholesterol at sugar so ang ginawa namin kahit before pa kami mgka-ITA, ngapa-laboratory kami mag-asawa for sanity check na lng din on our health. Si mister mataas din sugar that time so ng diet sya and exercise. Then this month bago medical namin ngpa test ulit sya, this time tumaas namn cholesterol nya pero sabi doctor kaya pa sa diet and exercise kasi hindi nmn consistent na mataas (whole week kasi ang dami party so napakain si mister. hehehe). Sa Nationwide cla ngpamedical. Ng-email ako kanina lang asking about anu pa included sa blood test to confirm kasi ika-5th day today, wala pa result. Ng-follow up lang ako. I'll share with you once I got any response from them about it.
Ako dito sa SG ngpamedical, pero sabi saken ng doctor na ng check saken, ung blood test is purely for HIV test naman daw kasi sinabi ko sa knya may flu ako, so sabi nya hindi nmn kasama ang blood count etc kasi HIV test lng nmn daw gagawin.
I guess they will base din sa sagot mo sa health declaration. Naka-indicate naman sa Referral Letter anu ung test required sa inyo.
Hi, I saw your post last September 28, and I'm having the same question din po. we are still in Dubai and I'm pregnant din po and we are planning na sa Aus ako magdeliver para citizen na agad baby naming then balik ulet kami ng Dubai after 2 months. kelan po due date mo?
Hi @Sophia sorry for the late response..I might have overlooked my inbox. I'm not yet pregnant..planning to pa lng..hehehe...But that is our plan once God bless us with our second child. One of the forumers sent me a private message and she did the same as I what I am intending to do. Kaya I think feasible nmn un. Giving birth in public hospitals is covered by Medicare naman daw and make sure lang have funds to support ung stay nyo dun while you are on Maternity Leave. If ever ba un ang IED nyo? I am still in the midst of completing my requirements for skills assessment pa lng din nmn. So i am still way far from being granted a visa..hehehehe..I just like to have my options ready in any scenario kaya curious ako malaman agad so I will not be caught by surprise. Hehehe..
