Finally, by the grace of Waheguru !!!!
I’m happy to share my PTE result; LRWS-87/83/89/90
I can’t believe my eyes when I saw the result. I appeared yesterday (3rd Jan – Punjab-India) and result was released by 11:00 AM today.
My previous tries with IELTS;
Monash Uni, Melbourne- Academic (2012)- L/R/S/W – 8.5/8/7.5/7
IDP INDIA (April’2014) – General (2014) – L/R/S/W – 9/7.5/7/7 (result released after 3 weeks)
IDP INDIA (Sep’2014) – Academic (2014) – L/R/S/W – 8.5/9/7/6.5 (result delayed by 1 month)
I gave the mock test A also and the result of the same was way below my actual result;66/68/72/68.
I just practiced using PTE Academic Test Builder(Macmillan) for around 10 days.
I will say about IELTS is their methodology is old as they judge your writing on the basis of just two essays, which in my opinion is not justifiable. And speaking is very much subjective.
I was in need of 20 points and I got the same from PTE Academic.
I got one essay it was about global climate change. My reading score is bit low may be it is because the time was not much and I rushed through it. There was another two candidates and I will say it was distracting and I was not able to concentrate during speaking and writing but tried to gave my best shot.
Thanks to the friends over here, who shared their experiences and I was able to learn a lot from it.
I will advice don’t be afraid have confidence and you can crack PTE Academic easily….
