Hi guys, I've attempted IELTS twice and scored 7.5 above in reading, listening and speaking, but I could only score 6.5 in writing on both occasions. Now I am planning to attempt PTE. While preparing for PTE, I find it very different from IELTS pattern and therefore I am also looking for strategies/preparation material/tricks & tips to get 65 in each PTE module.

Please help !

Hi all guys out der,

Need ur assistance to evaluate my PTE-A score.

I received my score card yesterday.

Below are the scores.

Writing - 86

Enabling Skills

Grammar - 85
Oral Fluency - 86
Pronunciation - 70

To apply for Australia PR (189 category), whether they check for scores only under "Communicative skills" or do they check for "Enabling skills" also ?

Pls help me to understand this score.

Thanks in advance. !!!

They check only Communicative Skills. You fall in 8 bands/ superior English category (each 79+) and will get 20 points for 189 category.

Very Nice Score Nihal,

I am also planning to take PTE - A. Can you please share some advice on how to get good score like you?
Specifically, I find difficulties in Speaking - Repeat sentence, Describe Image/Graph, Retell lecture.

Can you please explain me how can I improve in above areas?

Regards,
