PTE Magic-79+ Success Story

Today, let’s watch her success story on PTE MAGIC International Facebook page and learn her tips .


I try my best to follow and stick to the PTE MAGIC study plan and checklist.

I printed the repeated questions file. I made sure that every morning from Monday to Friday I read all the Repeat Sentence and every night I read all the Write From Dictation from the repeated questions to be familiarized with them.

Aside from reading the Repeat Sentence and Write From Dictation, I practiced at least 30 RS and WFD on the PTE MAGIC platform with AI scoring since I couldn’t do 100 each because I got home late from work.

Every night, I spent at least 2 hours studying on the platform doing all the 4 components. Since I struggled with the reading section, I focused on reorder paragraph and RW-FIB. I timed myself for 3 minutes per question, so I would be familiarized with how long I should spend on each question. I also googled the meaning of some words that I didn’t understand from the FIB.

For speaking, I did this part with a loud voice to get used to speaking clearly and loudly for the exam. Everyday, I practiced Describe Image with line graph, bar graph, an image and a life cycle/process.

On weekends, I completely followed the study plan which was:

-RL & SST- 10 each

-RS & WFD- 100 each

-FIB (R&W, R)- 30; RO- 10

-SWT-5, Essay-1

1 week before the exam. I read the predicted questions.

For speaking:

 I read ALL the repeat sentence, answer short questions, and I went over all the Describe Image in that file and I practiced describing them.

For reading:

 I went over the reorder paragraph and analyzed why they were arranged in a certain way. I also went over the R&W FIB to be familiarized with them.

For listening:

 I read ALL the Write From Dictation.
