    Hello po. question po. I am a non-ict and a graduate of business admin. May positive assessment ako galling ACS through RPL. I lodged my EOI and claim 15 points for education since my school is section 2 at meron po akong GWA na 1.8.. Ok lang po ba na hindi na ko magpaVETASSESS.

    Natatkot po kasi ako baka mareject visa application ko for overclaiming ng points.

    Salamat po in advance!

      Hi! Is this for the points test advise? Yes no need na as long as you have above 2.0 gwa. Though Im not so familiar with ACS ruling, but if the vetassess assessment is not a requirement, then no need na.

    Hello po, I got my GWA na and unfortunately 2.39% lang po. Can I still claim bachelors degree po ba if tinake ko ung BS Accountancy ko in a Section 2 school for five years and 239 total credit units po. Thanks po sa pagsagot. :)

      Hello. Sorry Im not sure sa units. Meron ako nabasaha before sa thread yata on schools and sections but not sure din sa criteria. Try mo din mag ask sa mga ibang nakapag apply na Accountants. Thanks
    • chococrinkle
      Btw, if BS Accountancy ka and you have PRC license as a CPA then comparable to a bachelors degree ang course mo.

    Hi sir sorry sa abala... ask ko lang po anu po yang CTC? and how to do it? accepted po ba yan sa EA and Visa requirements? TIA po

    • chococrinkle
      Hello po. Ang ctc ay certified true copy of the original document. Yung document mo photocopy mo from the orig then pa stamp mo sa lawyer lalagyan nya ng ctc remarks. For visa application colored scan lang ng original doc accepted sya no need to ctc. For the EA assessment sorry po di ko kayo masasagot iba kasi occupation ko. Thanks
    • ginpo
      thank you po.

    Hello Sir, ask sana ako regarding sa essay format na ginamit nyo. Confused ako sa introduction part. Thank you.

    • chococrinkle
      Hello po, I used E2 language format po and applying what I learned from Ielts. Sa intro, sa 1st sentence ni restate ko lang yung question using my own words. Then sa 2nd sentence if one sided lang yung question, I give summary of the reasons ( 2 reasons only). Example, if ang essay is about importance of computers (one sided), eto 2nd sentence ko. Computers are valuable resources as they (1st reason) aid in learning and are (2nd reason) used to communicate with others. Then sa 3rd sentence sasabihin ko para pampahaba-- In this essay, I shall discuss my point if view by giving points and examples about the topic.

      Then sa 2nd paragraph, elaborate ko na ang 1St reason. Mga 2 sentences na magsupport sa 1st reason. Tapos sa 3rd sentence example. Pwede ka din mag add pa ng 4th sentence parang isummarize mo lang ang 2nd paaragraph.

      Sa 3rd paragraph discuss naman ang 3rd reason same sa ginawa sa 2nd par.

      4Th paragraph 1st sentence conclusion, then 2nd sentence recommendation.

      If 2 sided naman yung intro pwede mo gamitin yung nasa template like kina Heprex na samples. Then yung 2nd par yung kabilang side, then yubg 3rd paragraph yung other side. Tapos same last paragraph.

      If medyo nahihirapan ka sa mga ideas, research ka dito sa forum ng mga recent topics. Check ko if na save ko pa send ko din sayo. Tapos based dun sa topic reasearch ka anong pwedeng maging points and reasons para may idea ka ano ilalagay mo sa essay.

      Kaya yan! Pray lang at practice, tyaga lang puhunan. God bless you :-) btw girl po ako. :-)
    • ceasarkho
      Sorry Ma'am. :) Wow super nice ng strategy nyo super clear, IELTS na IELTS nga.. How about po sa summarize written text, gumagamit kayo ng

      1. FANBOY
      2. Identify keywords
      3. Identify cause/effect, problem/solution, comparison/contrast
    • chococrinkle
      For summarize written text strategy ko is to first get ano main topic. Then analyze what important points were given, may nangyari ba? If meron ano ang nangyari, kelan nangyari? ano at para kanino ang purpose? Usually kasi sa mga paragraphs naka detail lang pero yung point lang naman dun is parang dinedescribe lang yung main topic. If you can answer who/what, when, how and why about the topic pwede mo na pagdugtungin yung ideas mo thru connectors and form a sentence. If you will have multiple paragraphs, summarize mo muna per paragraph then summarize mo ulit lahat in one sentence.
    • ceasarkho
      thank you po. Effective po kayo maging teacher.. :)
    • chococrinkle
      Hahaha. Di ko po pangarap yun. Hehehe.. Im glad to have helped you. God bless you on your exam. :-)
    • ceasarkho
      hello, help me naman po. If ma recall nyo last exam, ilan words po naisulat nyo sa essay? maraming slamat.
    • chococrinkle
      Around 230 to 250 words lang pi. Pag nag practice test po ako usually di umaabot ng 250 words yung essay ko. Between 210 to 230 ako palagi.
    • ceasarkho
      thank you.
    • chococrinkle
      No prob :-)
  • jon1101a
    Hi sir,

    May I know kung pano yung template nyo sa describe image kapag picture or process and pinakita? Also sa summarize spoken text okay lang ba kahit na yung template na conclusion ang gamitin? Overall, the lecture seems accurate and concise and can be used as a reference for future studies?
    November 2017
    • chococrinkle
      Hi jon. For describe image picture, example: gorillas distribution, I just say kung ano ang nakikita ko, also using the same conclusion sa template.. The picture projected on screen is about gorillas distribution, and it is divided into 3 areas. The largest area is in western australia, while the 2nd largest is in southern Australia. The lowest distribution is found in the central area. Overall, the picture seems accurate and precise and can be used for future references.

      Pag process naman sinasabi ko lang kung ano yung makikita sa process. If marami ang process dapat brief description lang per process para mabilis. I just start with the intro.. The picture projected is about the process of .... Then yung conclusion ko is same pa din.

      For summarize spoken text, since writing eto dapat walang fillers unless if wala ka talagang may na jot down na points sa lecture. Pero if madami naman kuha ka ng 4 to 5 points tapos sabihin mo yun using the template.. The lecture was about (topic)... The speaker mentioned (point 1)... He/She also discussed about (point 2).. Moreover, she cited that (point 3)... Finally, he/she concluded that (point 4). If nakuha mo kung ano ang conclusion ng speaker yan ilagay mo sa point 4, if wala naman kahit yung sinabi lang nya sa last point.

      God bless you sa pag rereview. Focus, patience and perseverance lang yan. Pray and claim for it, sure ako makukuha mo desired scores mo. :-)
    • chococrinkle
      Btw, girl po ako. Hehehe :-)

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
