PTE mic position

Many candidates, especially those taking the PTE test for the first time, often wonder about the optimal placement of the microphone for high-quality voice recordings.

While it may seem intuitive to position the microphone directly in front of the mouth, speaking naturally involves sounds like blowing, hissing, and coughing, which can have a negative impact if the microphone is too close. Therefore, the best microphone placement, as shown in the photo, is above the mouth and parallel to the nose.

This positioning ensures that exhalations do not directly affect the microphone while still capturing clear audio. It may require speaking slightly louder than usual in this setup.
