The answer is YES. Even if you are a native English speaker, still you need to know how to do the test. Believe you me, I have had many native English speakers in my PTE classes who didn’t get the score they wanted especially in speaking. Some the reasons are:
The PTE algorithm
A lot of PTE candidates, do not have an idea of how the computer scores different modules of the test. They think because they are native English speakers or have a good command of English, this will be recognized by the software. This is where they are wrong. In fact, I have seen more non-native speakers of English score higher than the native one and the reason of course is that the latter take it for granted and sit the test without taking any online or face-to-face PTE training.
High scoring test items
Most PTE candidates do not know which of the twenty test items of the PTE test is the most important one and which one is the least. In my online PTE classes, I make sure that all my students know the order of the test items in terms of their importance and spend time on practicing them accordingly.
Time management skills
When you take PTE coaching, you do not have to make the same mistakes that the first time PTE test-takers make. Because, at thePTE.com, all PTE trainers have sat the PTE Academic test at least twice. This means that you will know all there is about time management in the reading and listening modules.
