    @gingpoy once na release na ang result final and official na yata sya. if you want to challenge it need mo remarking which cost you almost the same with a re take. Give it another shot for sure kuha na yan the second time around (speaking based on my own experience). Good luck.

    @SAP_Melaka congrats. Are you aiming for a higher result, di ba aabot ag points mo sa 60? kasi sa occupation mo if im not wrong khit 60 pts lang naiinvite naman. But of course mas maganda pa din mataas points.

    @SAP_Melaka Sorry to hear that. You can still submit EOI with 5 points from state sponsorship. Kasi khit 55 tpos pag nag click ka ng state for SS 60 ka na. In demand nmn work nyo kaya malaki chance for SS while working on additional points at least naka pila na EOI mo.

    @batman Thank you, kaso po yung desired State ko is VIC and based on my ANZSCO Code 261111 (ICT Business Analyst) need nila at least 5yrs experience po.

    Might retake PTE again or else wait until January for additional 5 points :(

    @gingpoy Baka nga. Ang worry ko Lang, matagal nilabas results mo. Baka Na manual check Na nila yan. Yung technical problems ba, natapos mo naman lahat? O may mga Di Ka natapos? Sayang Ang lapit Na ng scores mo? Minalas pa at nagka problem. I suggest you take it Na Lang ulit. Medyo mahal nga lang

    @batman yeah, you are right. once na processed na daw yung result, final na daw yun. sabi sa aking nung kausap ko: "I apologize as we are unable to make any changes to your scores once generated."

    ang gusto ko lang sana malaman if kung naka affect yung technical problem dun sa points since konti na lang and if may tumingin ba dun sa incident that was raised by their site admin dito sa SG before na release yung result since they acknowledged yung issue - kaso hindi daw nila alam. hehehe!

    salamat sa info re challenge, hindi ako aware dito and hindi rin ako na inform. pero like what you've suggested, try na lang ulit if same price lang halos nung actual exam.

    @SAP_Melaka ang taas na pala ng score mo. puwede na yan. or wait till Jan 2017 nga :) unless nagmamadali ka talaga. hehe! ambunan mo naman ako ng galing mo sa PTE. need ko lang naman ng 65. hahaha!

    @xiaolico baka nga nag manual check sila ano? hindi lang alam nung kausap ko pa ano i check. LOL. with regards dun sa technical problem, yung last part lng ng speaking mga 2-3 questions siguro and first part ng listening, 1 question. sa reading and writing oks lang naman since hindi gumamit ng headset and natapos ko naman yung exam.

    sa listening part lang, nagmamadali ako sobra and nawala na yung concentration and focus ko. yeah, take na lang ulit. mwehehehe.

    @gingpoy Makukuha mo na din yan next, look at my first take po mababa din. Need ko talaga ng 20 points para maka-EOI ako - though di naman ako nagmamadali, masaya pa naman ako sa job ko (might be unusual no? hehe).

    Concern ko lang po kasi, up until now. 65 pointers pa lang naiinvite - prorata po kasi occupation ko. Baka po kasi pag-January, maubusan na ng allotment :(

    @michel_75 and @xiaolico Thank you! L86/R82/S65/W90. Sabit ako sa speaking kasi sinisipon ako and inuubo when i took the exam yesterday. Tapos may result na yesterday din around 9pm, same day. Need ko pang mag pa-assess sa CPA Australia, then after nun, pag positive assessment, lodge na ng EOI :) As far as CPAA is concern, pasok naman scores ko, although I'm really aiming for the "superior" english, pero I think that's enough. Magpapaka-practical nalang ako kasi another 10k if I'll retake the exam.

    It was my first time to take the exam kaya siguro medyo kabado, pero overall, it was God's grace who pulled me through. To Him be the glory :)

    Ok, for practical tips:
    1. Time: Go early sa testing center. Asa Trident ako ng 7am hahah kahit 7:45 pa magbubukas. I think ako pinakamaaga. It pays din na maaga kasi most likely una then sa line. Similar to what others suggested here, I grabbed number 1 sa PTE exam kahit hindi pa ako tapos mag-read ng house rules hahha. I really suggest mag number 1 kayo kasi maganda ung area sa mismong exam (this is if you are taking the exam at Trident Makati). Naka-separate cubicle kayo (number 1 computer), both sides are walls so kahit asa isang room lang kayo, parang na-fifilter ng wall ung noise galing sa ibang speakers. I also started early, mga 8:30, so asa reading na ako, ung iba speaking pa rin. While others would be bothered by the noise, so far sa akin hindi naman. Keri naman :)
    2. Clothes - wear comfortable clothes. Ako comfortable ako pag naka-corporate attire ako, or smart casual. It boosts my confidence heheh. Pero for others who are comfy in rubber shoes etc., then so be it. Basta whatever is comfy para sa inyo minus slippers and shorts hahha bawal sya sa trident.
    3. Mindset - this is one of the important things. Mindset. Isipin niyo lang "english" exam lang to. Actually mas mahirap pa nga ung mga practice sets provided here in the thread kesa sa actual exam. Mas mahirap ung Macmillan. Mas mahirap ung mock exams. The exam is relatively simple yet TRICKY. Parang nililito nya isip mo, particularly sa mga synonyms. Dito magiging relevant ung mga collocations. Level of difficulty is at par with that of the official PTE book by Kenny something. Pero other than that, isipin niyo "english exam" lang talaga ung PTE, mas mahirap pa board exams na kinuha natin. With that mindset, mas magiging confident tayo at mababawasan ang kaba. Kaya pagdating ng exam proper, chill lang tayo.
    4. I won't give na mga practical tips for each component. I think lahat ng sinabi nila dito sa thread, especially those 90ers like allej and lliyah are more than enough para makuha nya ang desired scores niyo. Finollow ko lang talaga sya. Sadly sa speaking medyo sablay kasi nga ngongo ako kahapon. Actually hanggang ngayon hahah. Un pa pala important, health. Kailangan healthy kayo when you'll take the exam, kasi nga it might affect your scores, like me sa speaking lol

    Above anything else, let's have faith in God, not only in his unlimited abilities but also in His goodness, kindness and faithfulness. Mabait sya and mahal nya tayo. So it's more than enough para lumakas loob natin for this exam.

    If there's any help I can give, or any questions, just let me know. I might help you. God bless to all future PTE-A takers!!! :)
