Just want to know kung mas okay ba talaga na itake ang IELTS over PTE?

Naguguluhan kasi ako since sabi nila mas madali daw ang PTE. Iniisip ko kung pte nalang kukunin ko since I have to get results by june para sa conversion program ko for nursing.

    PTE is easier. Kumuha ko IELTS and I failed to get all 7 in all bands kahit nag review pa ko ng 1month compared sa PTE nakakuha ko 80 in all which is equivalent sa ielts band of 8 with 2weeks review.

    Pero again its up to you. Good luck

    @bulbasaur sir ask ko lang kung mas maganda ba kumuha ng ielts kesa PTE? Yung nagreresearch kasi ako laging same lang sila. I’m planning to take conversion program in nursing this July. Ayoko naman masyado mapressure sa ielts kung pwede naman pala ako magpte which is mas madali. Iniisip ko lang kung may benefits ba pag ielts kesa PTE

    @leaxxx same lang sila na itetest ang english skills mo but in a different way and setup from one another nga lang.

    Ang ups ng IELTS in my POV, ay ung dami ng review centre. Madaming resources. Meron din naman resources ung PTE kaso it will be on your own. I havent been to the Philippines for 4 years now kaya wala akong alam kung may mga PTE review centres na.

    Again sa setup ng PTE ang kaharap mo ay computers only, sa Ielts speaking naman tao. Kung mas comfortable ka sa tao kaharap mo kesa computer (I prefer computer), mag ielts ka. You need to be comfortable and loose para gumana ung utak mo at madami ka masabi nga pala.

    Sa results mas mabilis mag labas ang PTE since computer based. two days lang alam mo na. Tapos ang testing ng PTE mas frequent compared sa IELTS. Pwede ka try and try until you get superior english results.

    I suggest mag-PTE ka nalang. It is not an easier exam but a fairer one. Test scores get delivered fast as well, so there's no need to wait. Plus, yung preparation time for the exam mas maikli din. Minsan in two weeks kaya mo na siya ipasa. Mas mura din ang PTE kung may voucher code ka. If you're taking PTE for the first time in the Philippines, I can help. PM me. :)

    Hello, I am planning to take my PTE exam next month. I need to hit atleast 80. Any tips please.

    Choose PTE. Got superior scores on my first take which became an advantage during my 189 independent skilled application. Since computer based sya, kalaban mo lang ung mga kasabay mo mag-exam during the speaking part kasi magiging maingay dahil lahat kayo magsasalita. Another tip is make your voice louder. When I did my review, simulation sya ng real pte exam, so nakarecord ung boses ko during speaking. Feeling ko nun sobrang lakas na ng boses ko. When the recording was played back, halos wala akong marinig sa mga sinasabi ko.

    @Peregrine thank you po for the tips
  • PeregrinePeregrine PhilippinesPosts: 24Member
    @leaxxx no prob. Kung magconversion ka, some universities prefer ielts. Though not sure about this kindly check. Bridging kasi ang ginawa ko kaya accepted ang pte. Ang sure ako nag-aaccept ng pte for conversion is ECU in WA kasi ung friend ko nag-inquire doon. All the best!

    Double check ko lang po na acceptable si PTE as replacement ni IELTS once magsend na tau requirements for pointing?
  • australiandreamsaustraliandreams Posts: 12Member
    Yes PTE is acceptable. And PTE is much better to take since walang human bias when it comes to scoring.
