Hello Brethren,

I have done PTE in Sydney and Scored 90 in all bands on the second attempt. First Attempt was 84 75 82 85 LRSW. So Australia is the only place I actually got the speaking. Had 2 tests in London(Speaking was around 50 & 60) and 1 test in Nigeria(all bands had useless results). So please do not be discouraged...It is possible.

Can't say i did anything special or used any materials different from what is obtainable here. Frankly i was just tired from all the English wahala. Between 2016-2017 i took 9 IELTS Test (6 In UK and 3 in Sydney). In all these tests they were claiming my writing was poor alternating between 7 &7.5 while other bands were always alternating between 8, 8.5, and 9. I believe i appealed 4 of the results, which proved to be a colossal waste of time and money. There was a particular result IELTS withheld for an extra 2 weeks after all results were released, saying they were checking the integrity of the scores( i would like to believe i had 9 in all bands to warrant the stress, but it was eventually released as LRWS 9, 9, 7.5 & 8.5. So i completely lost faith in IELTS.

I was only motivated to sit for PTE when my friend came back with an 85 in speaking here in Sydney. It hit me...ah ah! I speak English pass Chuks na...SO YES YOU CAN!

I guess what worked for me was going in there with a mentality that this was really the last test. Mic positioning is important and i used stresses in my speech(sounding like Oyibo). I kept talking even when i was talking rubbish in the describe image part...basically don't stutter, just keep flowing( don't overuse fillers like uhmm, you know...and others).

I cant say i practiced a lot because after the first attempt, you'll basically have no motivation to study...after all being Nigerians, we've been speaking English all our lives, so what else is there to study.

I believe the most important part of this journey is believing you can do it...and having that conviction that i am not coming back here for a repeat.


Hmmmm this is WAWU!!!

Sorry I am just seeing this. Painfully many of us are seeking nomination to get 489. The other option is port to Cannie. Maybe others can also advise.

No one can really say for sure (at least, I can't). Depends a lot on when you applied, your nominated occupation (pro-Rata or not) and the number of 75/80 - pointers ahead of you in the queue.

Here's an estimate from Iscah that should provide some clarity:
