I think it is best to be clear in what you speak. Record any practice attempts you make. Listen to it. Send it to some experts here and ask them to judge on what the mistake is. Often, people from the same country like friends and all have same speaking habits and cant judge properly.
Furthermore, take all notes while the retell lecture and other stuffs.
For the read out loud, be clear and confident. Speak with enthusiasm.
For the describe image, I followed my rule for giving out the following information only and it worked.
**Topic - 1 sentence on the topic. Make sure you paraphrase the topic and dont just say it as it is.
**Trend/axes - Say " the x axis of the graph shows so and so and ranges from so and so while the y axis denotes so and so ranging from so and so.
**High - Speak about the highest value on the graph
** Low- Speak about the lowest
** Conclusion - Say a sentence on the conclusion if time is enough or else leave it.
This should do the trick. IT did for me.
Cheers and best of luck.
I tried PTE Online Scored Test A. I found it very very very difficult. I guess, still I have not reached to the level of 65 scoring.
Can u address me in my problem? I am sure hundreds of students would have been struggling with the same problem.
Speaking section of test was very fast. I can not find out when is the last question for the particular task type. While going through Task Type 1, I can not figure out when will be the last read aloud passage. I click "Next' button in anticipation of next reading aloud passage, but suddenly, computer system starts speaking. And, before I realize that Task Type 1- Read Aloud has already ended and Task Type 2 - Repeat Sentence has started, I already lost 1st sentence and could not produce any answer due to lack of time to prepare my mind for the change in task type.
Than I keep going answering all repeat sentence tasks , and, click 'Next' button for next sentence, all in sudden, diagram appears on screen. Before I realize that Task 2 has ended and Task Type 3- Describe Image has started, over 10 seconds has already passed, giving me not enough time to produce good (or any) answer to describe image due to panic. The whole task goes in such way.
I click 'Next' button in anticipation of next Image, but without any notification, computer starts its speech. I used to loose initial 10-12 seconds lecture (Task Type 4) due to fast delivery of test, and could not understand what was the topic of the lecture which affect my response negatively in Re-tell lecture.
Same thing happens with Task Type 5, I do not get when will be the last lecture, and Task Type -5 Answer Short question starts. I could not listen 1st question properly because my mind was not ready for change in task type.
Can anyone help me to sort out this problem??? Plz....Plz...Plz.... I am toooooo scared now for my test...
