    @kholoudmanlucu god bless you in your coming exam. I'm located in the Philippines and it has one center accredited by PTE-A... there were 2 centers few years back but I reckon that the other one had more mic issues since majority seem to fail more there (just an observation based on numbers) ... prior taking pte exam, I called up PTE center in makati to inquire the brand of headset and keyboard which they were currently using... It seemed that they do not disclose this info. Having that small info meant that I wont be worrying about adjustments in terms of typing and utilizing the mic of the headset.... However when I took the exam last tym, thats the only time I knew that they were using a standard Logitech keyboard and Plantronics Audio 655 USB Multimedia Headset with Noise Canceling Microphone image

    Im not sure about the model of the plantronics wired headset but I'm certain that the headband has a reverse orientation which was uncomfortable since I'm wearing glasses, and has a volume adjustment on the left speaker side which was not clearly indicated if it was for speaker or mic volume by the invigilator... (based on the manual i recently read, it was for the speaker volume adjustment and this meant that there was no means of adjusting mic volume from external physical switches of the headset...)

    Regarding not clicking "next" after recorded answer is generally okay. However if the recording continues after 3 seconds of silence, this might be a mic adjustment issue. i guess mic volume plays a big factor particularly capturing background sounds or even ur breathing sound after saying your answer to the mic. With this, computer also analyses these sounds as bad pronunciation and low oral fluency which lowers the overall speaking score. I know it may sound peculiar and defensive but i think these are some of the limitation of computer assessment which is based on software. Despite of such, I believe this is better than those ielts examiners who are forced to fail some exam takers for the sake of putting more income to their business.

    I really hope PTE should also be available in cebu or davao to avoid flying to manila to take the exam.

    @chemicalh in the exam center where i took the exam, they have similar headset with adjustment on the side. I should have asked the invigilator for help since I have a doubt if the mic set up is ok. And yeah, it keeps on recording eventhough i stopped speaking, since it was my first time to take the exam, i am hesitant to click Next even if it keeps on recording after i speak especially in the Read Aloud part.

    I hope you get your desired score in ur nxt try.

    @kholoudmanlucu click next na once you already stopped speaking. otherwise, there's a chance that the mic could still grasp sounds from the background so it would not stop recording. plus, you save more time. then always make sure dun sa tip nila here to ensure that you sound clear and crisp. you don't have to hurry to immediately start the exam, take all the time you need to check whether the mic volume (as you can hear yourself from the feedback?) is already fine. i'm not sure kung naririnig niyo rin self niyo while talking in the mic in pte makati, in my case narinig ko naman sarili ko kayo medyo naka-adjust ako nun. tapos focus nalang kasi sobrang ingay talaga ng background.

    I agree na baka nga may mic issues sa isang exam center sa Ortigas. That's probably why until now they haven't reopened it yet. Ang advise before is renovation lang. If in case it's true, buti nalang at tinanggal na nila. They took two exam fees din sakin ah, sayang yun.

    @kholoudmanlucu i tried asking the invigilator about the placing of my mic in two of my exams. They just said yeah yeah that's okay like it was really 'ok'. Though my tutor last week said moc placing is important.

    Yes guys i keep on telling myself it's a mic problem but after 5times I'm loosing hope and I tried all the possible position for mic.

    I read the 600 pages of PTE thread in expat forum too and a lot of us have the same problem...speaking.. I'm so stuck and don't know what to do . My scores are very far from each other. I got 81 in R and L, 90 in W and 57 in Speaking in my 2nd attempt.

    @kholoudmanlucu by the way there was someone in expat forum who got 90 in speaking with below 50 pronunciation and fluency. So it's the content as well I guess..

    Goodluck pala sa exam mo

    @mimic check moba pausing mo sa (. & ,) Intonation higher/lower esp. after ng mga conjunctions & keywords, try moba mag read aloud while reading book or sabayan british accents sa youtube(BBC News). Baka when you it fast you forgot to observed what i've mentioned.

So I kept striving hard for it. ngayon, i'm halfway na to my goal! if I can do it, you can do it all guys as well. naniniwala ako na walang forever sa english exam! hehe..

    @mimic nsa perth ako naun and dito na din ako mg exam. haven't heard any feedback kung ok ang test center nila. we really need to be prepared nalang
    Maayos naman facilities ng test center sa Perth. May mga divider tapos 1 or 2 seats apart ang test takers. Simula na ng summer bukas pero magdala pa rin ng jacket kasi malamig sa loob ng room. Mabilis nga lang maubos ang slots kasi sila lang ang nag-iisang PTE test center sa WA. Good luck!

    @kymme Yes. Twice ako kumuha ng exam doon, parehas naman maayos yung condition ng headsets nila. Na-capture naman yung sagot nang maayos.
