    I'm not sure if automatic nag turn off. Di ko na matandaan hahaha pero i think may countdown bar naman sya, ung parang sa describe image. Don't worry di nman sya kasama sa score mo. I think gusto lang malaman ng PTE-A peeps kung anong purpose mo bakit ka magtatake ng exam :) yup, ikaw na rin ang susunod. I-claim mo. :) practice ka lang ng bongga, keribels na yan, and above all, pray and have faith in God. Tiwala lang :)

    @cnel26 pag nag open na yung mic at hindi ka nakapagsalita after within 3 seconds, auto shutoff na sya. Once magsalita ka ng tuloy tuloy, magsha-shutoff na yung mic after the alloted time

    @rich88: Ah okay. Ang taas ng score mo sa PTE mo, ang galing! Ano pwede mo ma-share na tips pagdating sa speaking?
  • rich88rich88 Quezon City
    Posts: 1,022Member
    edited September 2016
    @cnel_26 Sa speaking, iwasan mo lang talagang magpa-distract sa iba. Yung iba kasi tlagang sobrang lakas ng boses pagkausap yung mic kaya nakaka distract talaga. Pag nawala ka sa momentum, make sure na makaka recover ka dahil after 3 seconds, sarado na yung mic.

    Aside from that, make sure na may templates ka para pag wala ka na masabi, stick to your template. Kumbaga, ito yung pang recover mo pag na-distract ka sa iba at filler na rin pag wala ka na masabi. Make sure lang na yung filler mo is related pa rin dun sa section ng exam.

    Iwasan mag "umm", "ahh", at "hmmmm" kasi nakakabawas ata ng score yun. Gaya ng sabi ng karamihan dito, dapat parang reporter ka magsalita. Make sure na derederecho ang salita, tama ang pronunciation at diction para mag register ng maigi sa computer.

    Walang pake-alam ang computer sa accent, so wag mo na artehan. Hindi lahat ng accent ay tama lalo na kung pa-slang na ang pagkakasabi. Stick to the proper pronunciation lang. During practice, if may word na mejo unfamiliar, i-google mo lang kung ano yung tamang pronunciation para sure.

    At bago ka mag simula, i-test mo ng maigi yung mic mo. Verify mo if maganda yung register ng boses mo. Pag choppy, papalitan mo yung mic. May iba dito nadadale dahil sa technical issues.. mas ok if ma-eliminate mo yung mga bagay na pwedeng gawan ng paraan before you even start your exam.

    Sorry napahaba hehe..

    @mrfifi88 Hi! Sad to hear about your speaking result. Baka sa delivery nagkaproblema? Like yung volume ng boses, intonation, or maybe the software detected some hesitations and false starts? Before I took my 2nd exam, I listened to all the sample responses at inaral ko pano sya ini-score ni PTE dun sa score guide. It helped me pinpoint the things I shouldn't do or how I shouldn't sound like. Tapos, mas confident lang ang tono ko even if template na lang yung sinasabi ko kasi I ran out of details to say. And lastly, I maintained the volume of my voice all throughout the speaking session, I made sure that it matches kung ano yung ginawa ko sa mic test and even sa introduction part.
    May nabasa kasi ako before na even though the intro doesn't count for scoring, it serves as the software's benchmark of your natural voice. Best of luck, don't give up! Keep practicing and praying! :-bd

    Thank you very much for this thread and to all those who have shared their tips. Finally, I was able to get my desired scores for superior English. Took my exams last Tuesday at 9am, got my scores the same day at 9:40pm. All I can say is... PTE is the answer. So to those who will be taking their PTE, practice, practice and more practice. You will definitely ace it.
