An interview with our PTE Writing 90/90 scorer Mayuresh: Essay Writing Tips for PTE
Pravin Sir (Internationally acclaimed senior PTE & IELTS Trainer) : You scored 90/90 in Writing. Pl. inform for the benefit of students what strategies you followed and how could you do it. It will inspire them.
Mayuresh Thombre: Mostly, I followed your given templates only. Using the same, if you play with words and what is asked in the question; that itself will take about 100 words. Therefore, I only need to worry about 80 words for the actual content to focus on with last 20 words for conclusion. I also noticed that I personally tend to get carried away. As such end up with 20-40 extra words. Therefore, always keep track of word count. Coming back to the 80-word content, stop and think about content idea for 2 minutes and follow through it strictly in order to avoid confusion and waste of time. Don’t write any special word unless sure about its spelling. Finally, leave 5-7 minute for spell check and proof reading. Unsure about spelling, use synonym you know of. Make paragraphs. Use correct punctuations wherever needed.
