    @MSS, sis yung mock test ba? IMO, malaking tulong din yung mock test online kasi dun mo maga-gauge yung scores mo. Yung sakin kasi medyo malapit yung scores ko sa actual. Di ko lang talaga maintindihan bakit yung kay @filipinacpa eh hindi ganun ang nangyari. Which I think dapat pasado na sya sa totoong buhay.

    Iba pala yung questions sa book kesa sa online practice. Difference? Hmmm.... Si book kasi may explanation about sa score ng candidate based dun sa sagot nya. Actually, sya lang yung book na nakita ko na me ganyan, si McMillan kung maalala ko wala eh though may model answers sya. Pero si book kasi magkakaron ka ng idea ano yung mga dapat mo i-mention sa Describe Image, Retell Lecture, etc. :)

    @filipinacpa: Sis nagbook na ako ng exam sa June 3. Matinding review na ito from now on. Thanks sa mga reviewers and sa promo code. Nagamit ko sya. 25USD din yun a sayang din. :) Wish me luck mga kapatid.

    I'll try yung second practice exam by Saturday to gauge kung kaya ko na ba talaga...

    Is it true na mas mahirap ang mga practice exams kesa yun actual exam?

    Finally, naka pasa na sa english test.

    First try: L73 R69 S63 W76
    Second try: L90 R80 S78 W80 (Sayang, 20 points na sana)

    @filipinacpa,

    Sa bright centre ako nag take ng test. yung mouth piece wag mo ilapit masyado sa mouth mo. Katapat ng mouth pero mga 3 inches ang layo gawin mo. Tas mag "testing testing 1 2 3" ka hangga't di perfect yung pag playback mo. Kelangan wala ka ibang madidinig na noise, yung boses mo lang. Pag malapit kasi meron parang "thump" na kasabay yung boses, or parang may buga ng hangin. Nung first try, di ko pinansin, pero nung second try ganun ginawa ko. Nag improve naman speaking score ko hehe, kahit na ang pakiramdam ko mas ok performance ko sa first try. HTH

    Thanks thanks! MsVi and filipinacpa! :) Di ko nga inexpect na ganyan kataas ang score. Kasi feeling ko mas ok yung performance ko sa first try haha! Baka naka apekto talaga yung distance ng mic. Nung first try ko kasi, sabi nung invigilator ilapit ko daw.

    @filipinacpa

    Ganun ata pag malapit yung mic sa bibig. I-adjust mo lang yung mic hanggang mawala yung unnecessary sound na kasabay ng boses mo sa playback. Basta nilayo ko lang yung mic, tas okay na sakin. Na b-bend yung mic nung headset, bend mo lang palayo sa bibig mo tas test mo ng i-test. I'm sure hindi speaking skills mo ang problem, yung extra noise lang yung nag cause ng low scores mo. Hehe dami ko kasi palpak sa speaking section pero 78 nakuha ko - at di ako makatulog kanina sa saya haha. Good luck! Ace mo na yan next time.

    @Liolaeus medyo nakakaloka yung invigilator dun.. yung magandang babae sakin na may color ang hair na maputi.. haha.. nung 1st take ko, sabi niya hindi ko na raw pwede i adjust yung volume.. fixed na raw yun all throughout the exam.. i was surprised she told me that pero masunurin ako di ko na inadjust.. (which is wrong when i tried it on my 2nd take, pwede naman pala iadjust)..

    then during first take ko, nag paalam ako if pwede ko ilapit yung mic and takpan ko para lumaki boses ko, no problem daw. wala daw issue yun..

    2nd take naman.. same invigilator.. medyo nilayo ko yung mic.. sabi niya masyado daw malayo baka daw hindi marining ng computer..

    kaloka lang.. haha pero mababait naman sila dun.. yung sa pearson center sa makati mukang medyo mahigpit.. one time tinawagan ko sila asking about their facility, average number of examinees per schedule, background noise, exam schedules etc.. yung babae dun di ako binigyan ni isang info dahil confidential unless i am already in the venue for the exam.. lol

    Mukang di pa nya na try yung test. Ganun din sabi sakin sa first try, ilapit ko daw, naniwala naman ako. haha lagpas pa yung mic test nun, pinagalaw pa yung mic sakin. Basta yung Playback nalang ng voice mo ang sundin mo. Clear and crisp. hehe

    Sabi nung lalaki na chinito bago ko umalis, good luck and sana makuha ko daw ng first try. Sa loob loob ko, 2nd try ko na po ito. lol

    Ang gusto ko dito sa Bright Centre, 4 seats lang available tas ako lang mag isa yung test taker.

    @bait0211

    Repeat sentence: 7-10 words, may isa sigurong 14 words.
    Describe Image: Yes, meron image, chart, table na pag a-aralan mo for 25 seconds. Minsan may mahabang note or title na kasama, binasa ko na lang yun nung wala na ko masabi. haha

    Try mo yung Sample Test A and B. Sayang yung na purchase kong practice tests, di ko naman nagamit. Excited kasi haha. Sana pwede ipasa sa iba yun. sayang kasi.

    @filipinacpa honestly speaking i've already prepared myself for re-take kasi sobrang sabog.. Yung sa speaking, i didn't care kung mabagal or hindi.. Basta kung pano yung normal na pagsasalita ko tpos kung anu-anu lang basta may masabi. As in un lang... Basta iniisip ko fluency fluency kahit anung sbhn ko kahit paulit ulit.. Hindi ko natatapos yung time.. Clicj next agad..

    Pero above all this preparation, faith in The Lord tlaga!
