Has anybody tried the PTE Academic test. I'm just curious since we got my wife's results from her second IELTS attempt and it is not very encouraging.

Post PTE Academic

Hi All,

Me and my friend appeared for the PTE Academic exam today and for me it was very difficult as I did not practice the test (I guess I was a bit over confident). The results will be out next week(Friday). Will update you once I get the results.

Hi Mandy

It is an online computer based test, from what I have gathered.

Yes, 75% of the students get their results within 48 hours of the test.

Test dates are available as early as a week.

Its an online test. The only problem is u have to pay for the practice test. Which is $35. Not enough material available online... I guess u need to do a lot of reading and writing. Read any Chetan Bhagat book I am sure you can score at least 7 by reading those books.
Call up your bank or any call center and speak in English. If you are still unable to catch up with your speaking approach an English professor. I am sure they will help u but they will charge u. Check with the British Council in your city. For listening watch English movies with English subtitles

Regarding your question about the points. My current score will get me 10 points but I want 20 points so will be appearing again for the test in November.
