Yea...was able to download it. Thanks a bunch.

In the practice tests, how can one rate his scores. Like for speaking.... how would you know the computer can grab everything you've said. I just finished the speaking practise tests and didn't see scores.

Secondly, can i use my usual phone earpiece for the practise tests...or i have to go get a professional one like the pilots use?

mctowel01:
So, this is for those of us who are preparing for PTE as a medium to exchange information, preparatory materials and very important tips concerning writing the exam.
So let me start.. I know a lot of people have been looking for materials for PTE. I have uploaded it to a Dropbox account. You can download it from this link

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vrxfb23yh2jubz0/AACqQqja5SXpPfZkhvozNTyqa?dl=0

Edit.
If you download it successfully, please kindly indicate on this thread, so i ll be sure the link is still working.
Its a zip file of about 250mb.

. This thread is basically a PTE assistance thread and not for insults and banters. Those who have written the exam can come and share information and tips to we future test takers, especially those of us gunning for very high scores. Please help others by sending dropbox links to files not in this link.

Sorry, you can't really rate the speaking. Just have a speaking template /strategy which you will use to answer the speaking questions. Ensure your recordings fit the tips required to effectively answer the questions.
You can use your earpiece, as far as the playback is clear. Changing headphones doesn't really influence preparations.
Re: Preparing For PTE? Get In Here by POTUSUK: 9:11am On Dec 29, 2016
okay...thanks for the great feedback

did you have to change your voice like Bnimz did?... or you just spoke clearly but not oyibo-ish?

Speaking template I lifted from another forum

The xxxx chart represent ( the topic of the chart)
The x-axis (between 1990 to 2010)
The highest number, next highest no, then the lowest (striking features)
Conclusion: the highest and the lowest number

Retell lecture
The speaker said xxxxx, the lecture was about xxxx
He/she mentioned xxxx (key points)
Conclusion

Reading
Try to read with rhythm and pronounce words clearly

Repeat sentence
You can write down the first letters of the word you here eg.
Communication in the last century:- C ITLC

Strange..Maybe theirs might have been exhausted. I cant be certain also. Why don't you wait till work resumes next year to be certain of the official price from UKEAS.

I called UKEAS and was told that there's no voucher available for now and that the price has gone up, the actual official price will be known by Thursday or Friday. On retrospect, I should've bought the voucher and kept it when it was still at #38k. Seriously regretting this...
