In order to pass your PTE writing, you need to make sure you do the following things:
1. Use a template for your Summarized Written Tests (SWT)
In this first part of the writing section, you are given a text of 250 words and 10 minutes’ time to summarize it into one sentence. That one sentence can be as few as 5 and as many as 75 words. You will get 2 or 3 SWT in your PTE academic test. On rear occasions, students have got only on SWT in their test. If you write two sentences, then you will get no points for this section.
We would recommend using a template for this section. This would mean you are going to write only ONE sentence and that sentence would be grammatically sound. To take part in our online PTE coaching, click on this link.
2. Use a template for your Write Essay (WE)
For the second part of the writing section, you are given a topic and 20 minutes to write an essay of 200-300 words. You may have one or two topics in your PTE academic test. Your essay writing contributes points to your enabling skills as well. Those skills are Spelling, grammar, vocabulary and written discourse.
To tick all the boxes, we would recommend using a template to have an organized piece of writing. To take part in our online PTE training, click on this link.
3. DO NOT practice typing in Microsoft Word
Do not use Microsoft Word for essay writing practices. Use Notepad instead as it does not automatically correct your misspellings. Once you are finished typing in Notepad, copy it to Microsoft Word to find out your misspellings. Take notes of your typos because they are the same mistakes you are going to make in the real PTE test.
