The answer to this question depends on the level of English competency of the person in question and how much time the person is willing to spend on learning and practicing different parts of the PTE test. But make sure you do the followings before you actually sit the test.
1. Get proper coaching
This test is full of tricks that you should know before you attempt it. I have had English native speakers in my class who failed to get their desired score in their first attempt. So get proper online or face-to-face coaching before you actually sit PTE the test.
2. Practice as much as you can on a PTE practice platform (www.thepte.com)
This test is about habit formation. Once you form those habit, you can easily score what you want. Online practice is very important because you need to use a computer. And if the PTE practise platform is a professional one like ours (thepte.com), then it means you would be at home once you sit the real test.
3. Do at least 3 standardized PTE mock tests before your test
Standardized PTE mock tests are the same as the real PTE exam in every aspect. Click this link to do our free standardized PTE mock test. In terms of appearance, they are very close to the real one. The content should be standardized and on the same par as the PTE test questions. And finally, the score it gives you should mirror and predict the score you are going to get in the PTE test. A good PTE mock test will expose your weaknesses and strong points. Therefore, do the test 2-3 weeks before your PTE exam so that you can take care of your weakness and smooth them out.
