    @garfield @tobby The mock is more difficult than the actual exam. They purposely do that so that the test takers are prepared for the actual exam. I got R67 and W77 for the mock exam. Don't feel too bad about the mock. Just keep practicing. Sobrang helpful din yung advice sa Page 98 and 166 of this thread.
    Maraming salamat sa encouragement. Sana maka ace din po kmi kagaya saiyu.galing ng scores mo.

    anybody here encountered issues with the Practice Gold Kit? I took Practice Test A two weeks ago and nag stop yun counter for Retell Lecture in all three questions. without the counter I have no idea if na record yun sagot ko or not. thinking that I had a problem with my internet connection I decided to take Practice Test B today, and had the same issue. I got 53 in speaking ..nasasayangan lang ako cause I can't determine if the score is because of the glitch or I really failed.. sigh

    @hanny_k Sinubukan ko dati magparecheck pero hindi natuloy kasi nung chineck nung pte customer service yung eligibility ko for rescoring hindi daw pwede dahil may na-tick ako na option upon registration na once lumabas yung results ay automatically isesend ng system sa DIBP. So kapag nangyare yun, hindi na pwede magrequest ng rescore.

    If you have got extra time, try reading the FAQ regarding rescoring on their website.

    Good luck mate!

    @Urlilangel_christy Hello! :) For the template wala akong consistent na ginamit.

    Retell Lecture:
    For this part, I wrote down key points that the speaker said. As in the important ones only and I used the image or powerpoint that was already on the screen as a guide to how I will retell the lecture. I made sure to at least be able to remember one or two sentences that the speaker mentioned because that ensured that what I said would be correct then I just expounded on the topic from how I understood it. I usually used "The lecturer said/ mentioned/ described....".

    Describe Image: Madalas ginawa ko dito binasa ko yung nasa image. As in sinasabi ko "The graph describes the Gorilla Distribution of...." tapos binasa ko lang talaga yung mga nasa image. Wala pa nga hindi tama yung sinasabi ko sa nasa data. But don't worry about that, what's important is the way you speak and not the content.

    Sa Speaking parts I tried to use up all the time that was given to record and I made sure that the record was starting before I started speaking. I noticed that at some parts the record beep didn't sound. Nung mock exam ko yung ibang recordings ko hindi nasasama yung start. Also, at some part hindi ko natapos ng maayos yung explanation ko or sagot ko. I think okay lang yon kasi ang habol talaga sa speaking is oral fluency and pronunciation.

    @Urlilangel_christy Hello! :) For the template wala akong consistent na ginamit.

    Retell Lecture:
    For this part, I wrote down key points that the speaker said. As in the important ones only and I used the image or powerpoint that was already on the screen as a guide to how I will retell the lecture. I made sure to at least be able to remember one or two sentences that the speaker mentioned because that ensured that what I said would be correct then I just expounded on the topic from how I understood it. I usually used "The lecturer said/ mentioned/ described....".

    Describe Image: Madalas ginawa ko dito binasa ko yung nasa image. As in sinasabi ko "The graph describes the Gorilla Distribution of...." tapos binasa ko lang talaga yung mga nasa image. Wala pa nga hindi tama yung sinasabi ko sa nasa data. But don't worry about that, what's important is the way you speak and not the content.

    Sa Speaking parts I tried to use up all the time that was given to record and I made sure that the record was starting before I started speaking. I noticed that at some parts the record beep didn't sound. Nung mock exam ko yung ibang recordings ko hindi nasasama yung start. Also, at some part hindi ko natapos ng maayos yung explanation ko or sagot ko. I think okay lang yon kasi ang habol talaga sa speaking is oral fluency and pronunciation.
    Maraming salamat sa tips. Very helpful for my husband.

    Btw, dun sa mga naka 90 or above 79 sa speaking, how did you pronounce the words? Natural na filipino english lang or yung may accent? Dun sa read aloud, may feelings din ba yung pagsasalita nyo? Thanks!
