!! Urgent Help on PTE writing and listening !!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all are doing well.
I would like to share my concern with marks I have scored after attempting PTE 3 times. Each time I scored less than 20 in spelling. My required score is 65 each module because this would make 65 points to submit EOI.

Adding few important information
1) I joined one famous institute for PTE but that didn't help.
2) I did review the essays and summarized text but still I am scoring very less in spelling.
3) My friend cleared the exam with lesser marks than me in enabling skills.
4) I believe that I am scoring less in listening because it scores half from writing

PFB scores & please help me rid of this blunder because now I am feeling very frustrated and disturbed.

    Hi! me too! @abhishek14mar and @levimervin musta po ang mga exam nyo? sobrang struggled din ako maka superior sa spelling pwede po makahingi ng konting advice hinihila po ang writing ko. May impact po ba ang WFD? kasi chinecheck ko naman ang mga essays ko. huhuhu
  • xero09xero09 PhilippinesPosts: 21Member
    Mas malaki ang hatak ng WFD kaysa sa essay kasi mas maraming points doon. 15 points lang ang essay writing kung isa lang ang item mo sa write essay pero sa WFD pwedeng umabot ng 30 plus points depende sa length ng dictation.
