PTE Academic - On Exam Day

On the big day, when your skills will be finally tested under strict environment, you may feel nervous! But you are not alone. In our experience, the majority of first-time test takers are nervous though they have practised very hard and knew all the modules and their items. The reason is simple – anxiety and probably a little fear.

Here are a few tips that will help you get rid of tension and all the bothering worries.

  • Keep yourself mentally fresh. Try to avoid arguments and skirmishes
  • Get the checklist ‘checked!’ Don’t forget your ID card, passport, receipt, and other essential documents
  • Arrive at least half an hour before the time
  • At the entrance, you’ll be asked for your passport, and test receipt downloaded from the Pearson website
  • The biometric check (scan your palm) happens on the day of Pearson Test of English. They will use both of your hands
  • You also need a photo clicked on the spot and sign in digitally. Sit straight so that the camera can capture your photo
  • The administrator will assign you a locker to check-in your belongings
  • If you have any query, ask the invigilator
  • In general, there are 10 seats at the test centre from which you’ll be allotted with a seat.
  • There will be other test takers around you, but each will be sitting in their private booth.
  • Check the microphone, its volume, and other functionalities. Contact the authority in a case it’s not working correctly.
  • In case you need help in between, you may raise your hand
  • You will have a 10-minute break after the reading module. However, it’s not mandatory
  • Once the test is over, you are expected to leave the hall
  • Collecting passport and other formalities may take 10-15 minutes

That’s the end of the big day!

Pearson declares the results in 2-5 working days.
