Hi.. this is my first post here. Submitted EOI for 189 and 190 in July 2018. 75 pts for 190 under job 261312 (developer programmer). My IELTS score was overall 8 but 7.5 in writing. My questions are :

1) Can i improve my score with PTE?
2) Do I stand a chance of receiving invite soon?

currently there is a good change of invitation on 75 points for 189. Invites on 70 would only depends if the quota is left when all the 75 pointers will be invited. So its always better to increase your points if you can. For PTE, I can say after seeing your IELTS score is that you can easily get 79+ in all. I got 8877 in IELTS and get 80+ in all in my second PTE attempt

I will try PTE then. Do you suggest some study material source? I heard of PTE Tutorial mock tests.

The best material I found was E2Learning YouTube videos. Just search them on YouTube, their techniques are much easier and close to real. Also, take mock test from PTE Gold which will help you in test yourself in real scenario. Also, check PTE GOLD YouTube videos, they publish latest content from previous tests

This is in fact an everlasting issue with our new members. Once they get the hang, no one does it anymore. The thing is that, in the future, the prospective members tend to continue the discussion without knowing the same happening parallel. :D

Cheers.

Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
