PTE Training

Even if English is your first language, all applicants must prepare for PTE Academic. Applicants who find themselves fluent in English often score less well on English tests than they should have, since their performance on the day is influenced by lack of training.

When the PTE training and practice is done, the answers clarify the marking scheme. The same test should then be repeatedly taken at every break explaining the same thing to the students with different sets of questions. In this way the testing is completed on all exams. Mock-tests are administered after classroom sessions simulating the test conditions and scores are given for each mock test.
