    @cnel_26 just got my results and it is higher (praise God!) L82/R90/W90/S90. Tip lang talaga is focus kasi sabay sabay mga nageexam. Maingay. Kelangan concentrate ka sa exam mo. Also, check yung time. Yung sa listening ko, nagmadali kasi ako, may isang point sa exam na 9 questions pa and 8 minutes nalang time ko.

    Sinundan ko lang din yung tips pala ni @cicciotinnie (thanks!).

    SPEAKING: FROM 66 TO 90.

    Hi guys,

    I would just like to give back and help others na nahihirapan sa SPEAKING part tulad ng pagtulong sakin nung mga naunang nakapasa. I was also very frustrated nung unang take ko dahil dito lang din ako mababa and i dont understand why. I believed I did well nung exam to the point na dapat magpapare-score ako.

    Disclaimer: I will try to share what I did and observed. I dont mean to falsify ung tips galing sa ibang sources. its just that, this is what worked for me and I hope this will help others.


    MIC POSITIONING: halos nasa ilong ko na po nakatapat ung mic ko kasi dun walang buga ng hangin pag nagrerecord ako.

    READ ALOUD:

    1st take: ang nakuha kong tip was make sure na well-enunciated ung words. I also observed phrasing, intonation and stressing of keywords. In effect, ang bagal ko magbasa. this is what i observed na ginagawa ng madami nung nag exam ako last monday, nov.28.

    2ND TAKE: I just looked for the commas and periods. Dun lang ako nagpapause. The rest tuloy-tuloy ang basa ko. kung may mahabang sentence na walang comma, i try to read it in one go. Di po kailangan magmadali basta tuloy tuloy. I focus and read one word at a time then jump to the next without pause. Hindi po perfect ung pagbabasa ko. madami akong di napronounce ng maayos pero i kept on reading ng tuloy tuloy na parang walang nangyari. composure lang para fluent padin. Ung intonation ko basta falling tone pag period pag comma I try na itaas ung tone pero minsan nakakalimutan kong gawin.(NOTE: my pronunciation was low at 69 pero ung fluency is 90, maybe this was the effect of mispronouncing words, pero ok lang as long as 90 ung speaking overall)


    REPEAT SENTENCE:

    I can repeat sentence with high accuracy pero at low speeds kasi I try to remember exactly what was said. Pero since I understand na sa fluency ako madadali, i try to say ung natandaan ko and improvise kung di ko talaga matandaan in a fluent manner.

    ex.
    sentence: yesterday, i went to the pharmacy near my office to buy some pain relievers.

    my response: yesterday, i went to the pharmacy to buy some pain killers.

    I remember, may isang sentence na halos four words lang ung natandaan ko sa start kasi mabilis pero nagiprovise nalang ako.

    Some sentences are short and you can repeat it easily. Just try to be fluent kahit na hindi mo natatandaan lahat dun sa mahahabang sentence.


    DESCRIBE IMAGE:

    1st take: may pattern ako ng sasabihin na nakuha ko sa webinar ng E2language sa youtube. although hindi ako masyadong fluent kasi i need to think of what to say next.

    2ND TAKE: I used this template ( i just adapted this from other tips. sorry kung di ko na maalala kung sino ung original na gumawa. thanks for it).

    "The chart projected on the screen is the presentation of variables from the research entitled .

    Based on the summary provided, it can be seen that the highest was recorder in/for .

    Overall there is an increasing trend/ decreasing trend /fluctuation/ all most the same.

    The chart was concise and accurate and can be used for future studies with the same objectives.

    The source of the data was not disclosed.

    The chart was interesting and informative because it has analysis that can be utilised by students and educators. "


    Sometimes madami kang madidiscuss sa image so unti nalang ung fillers na malalagay mo. pag malapit na ung time i tried to finish with a complete sentence although di ko naman laging nagawa.

    ex. last sentence: ...the chart was informative.

    try to be fluent with your discussion. kung may gusto ka pa idiscuss pero nagsstamer kana, might as well finish with the memorized fillers nalang.


    RETELL LECTURE:

    Dito ako pinaka hirap sa pagpractice. what worked for me is to get around 4 sentences galing sa recording. i tried ung technique na keywords lang ung isulat ko pero pag magsasalita nako, hindi ko na alam pagdugtungin ung madaming keywords na nasulat ko. so ang ginagawa ko is listen for the topic, then get my first sentence basta lang may subject, verb at object ok na un. habang nagsusulat ako di ako makafocus sa ibang sinasabi so nagfocus nalang ako sa pagsulat. then after ng first sentence, i listen for my second sentence.

    Example

    Notes taken:
    Bees
    1. color flowers tell temperature
    2. diff color same nectar
    3. energy to keep warm
    4. bees like warmer flowers


    TEMPLATE: (thank you for the person that made the original template, i modified this a bit)

    "the lecturer provided a brief information about and a significant time was spent discussing around this topic.

    The speaker concluded after all the data points were completely discussed.

    To summarise his analysis he points out that:
    >The color of flowers can tell their temperature.
    >And flowers may have different colors even though they have same amount of nectar.
    >In addition, bees take a lot of energy to keep themselves warm.
    >Finally, he concluded by saying that bees prefer warmer flowers.

    Fillers: the lecture was interesting and informative and can be utilised by students and educators."

    again, i tried to finish with the a complete sentence kung mapuputol na ung time. hindi ko po sure kung anong effect kung ma cut ka in the middle of a sentence pero nabasa ko lang na baka maapectuhan ung grammar. In my experience, minsan minsan na nacucut din ako midway.


    SHORT ANSWERS:

    I did not know lahat ng sagot pero i gave answers anyway. try to make sure na "recording" na before giving your answer. ung una ko kasi, nagulat ako so nagsalita nako bago mag recording. kung hindi nyo po alam ung sagot, give any answer muna, then if bigla nyo maalala, then pwede nyo ihabol.

    ex. what do you call the piece of paper you get when you purchase an item.

    response. paper...receipt.

    just give any answer kahit hindi nyo alam. i remember may hindi ako alam na sagot, something about statue, so ang sinagot ko statue... liberty. alam ko maling mali ung sagot ko, kaya i was surprised din na naka 90 ako.


    FINALLY: I know its a lot of money. I used "PTE2015" promo code to save some. from around P10,200 to around P9,300.

    "Failure and Success are faces of the same coin, you cannot have one without the other."

    Nung nagfail ako ng ielts and pte 1st take, i feel frustated kasi i know i did my ultimate best. But I thought I wont allow this failures to stop me from what i want and dictate what I will get in my life. Lets be PERSISTENT and ACHIEVE OUR AUSTRALIAN DREAM!

    Got my PTE 2nd result and at last 20pts! My 1st take was okay with 80+ on other sections, 90 in speaking but only 75 for reading hence need to take it again.

    Serious 2 advices.

    1. Practice and Focus on all sections. Sounds general ito but on test day, either you "have it" to pass the exam or not.
    2. Speaking - Follow speaking formats that can be found here. Focus on your fluency more and not content. Basta salita lang ng salita kahit na anong mangyari. Use "and", "in addition", "moreover", "however" na mabagal ung pagkakasabi to give you time to think instead of just stop speaking.

    Cheers!

    @pinaycpa im glad you ask. i am from Cebu and will be taking this Sep 11. I am also looking for hotel near the Trident Tower na hindi mamahalin. I tried One Pacific before, lapit lang talaga (i think 3 buildings lang ang pagitan) pero medyo mahal cya.
