Final PTE Exam Tips Before Taking The Exam.

Read all test instructions carefully: It can be a huge mistake not to read the instructions. Be sure you know what you are required to do before you begin. Is there a single correct answer? Or multiple answers? Does the essay prompt contain 2 questions or only one? If there are 2 questions and you only answer one, your response is incomplete, which will affect your score.

Slow down, relax: During your test, you may feel rushed when you see the timer on the screen resulting in making mistakes. Remember to breath deeply and slowly.

Get enough sleep: Make sure you get enough sleep the night before the test. Once the test starts you will not have much time to relax or regain lost focus.
Do not forget your passport: Prepare your passport the night before the exam to not stress out before the exam.

Take your optional break: You will be allowed a 10-minute break after the Reading Section. Make sure to take it.

Dont focus on background noise: The center will be crowded, it may get noisy, especially during the speaking part. Are you worried about that? Activate the background noise available in PTE Success to get used to it.

Use your notepad: You are given a notepad, make use of it for the more demanding exercises.

Capital Letters and Punctuation: Make sure you use them everywhere. Especially in write from dictation otherwise you will loose unnecessary marks.
