If you could help me out with some templates/ strategies to boost my score, it would be really grateful. I desperately need some help as I have spend so much money on writing it several times and my visa gets expired next year.

Hi Jerry.. well its too much money and I am sorry that you have not been able to get this.

I know the feeling as I myself had to go through 6 attempts to of IELTS or PTE..
Dont loose hope

Firstly plan before your next session.

1) do basics right:
sit down and check if you are using english all the time.( being honest here is key) what I did was when I was struggling.. I decided to speak only in english to anyone who tries to communicate( much to the dismay of my wife). but that was very important.

2) searched for wren and martin and re visited all the grammar rules.
3) Stopped reading Toilet news paper( TOI). subscribed to HINDU and ET. Read All the UK and Australia NEWS papers online. this helped me in reading and getting words corrected with right grammar. Yes Lot of people laughed.. but Hey.. who has the final laugh.

4) Practice is the key.. I practised the same set many times over to get the strategies correct. I must have practised the whole PTE materials 15-20 times before every exam. (Analogy- Body builders do the same work out again and again to increase the muscle tone. we need to get into habits of getting the stratergy right to score well in exam.. Motive of Defence forces.. bleed and sweat in peace time so that you bleed less in war)

5) utmost belief that you will get the score. the moment you say you are not getting the score then you will never get it.

6) cross exam practice.. dont stop IELTS practice.. they have similer exam. its pattern is different but you can still gain valuable English exam exp.

All the best buddy

Can anyone have idea on speech to text software's. Is google speech auto correct our words?
I have a problem in speaking. Most of the time Dictation.io does not capture all my word, but google speech does. Is that because of auto correcting?
Please advice

Check Speechnotes software. Just type in google & you will find a link to open it.
Then check what you speak is getting recorded correctly or not.

If you can arrange for it, get the Dragon Naturally Speaking software from Nuance. It will adjust itself according to your voice and will have no problems converting your speech to text, provided your pronunciation is clear. (Accent does not matter)

I appreciate your perseverance. I think you can do it. What I find is that. Apart from English exam, You need to be well prepared on the test day with a relaxed mind.
Can you try meditation or other techniques to calm mind.

For English,
listen to podcast while in office or in travel and observe. Read a book and observe the usage. Also check the meaning of unknown words and see the synonyms and usage using a dictionary.

Practice talking with the newly learnt word.

Try different mic positions in mock test and find a suitable one.
