Recently, I have been preparing for PTE test for my study abroad.
Until now, I have taken part in the test for two times, but I still failed the exam.
Honestly speaking, my goal is not unreachable, which was over 50 in single subject and over 58 in average scores.
Then, I got this:
It’s an embarrassing score which the average part is ok, but only one point gap on Speaking part, which really depressed me.
Except the testing fee (almost 2000 RMB, it’s not cheap!), I just felt that the destiny plays a joke with me.
While I was writing this post, I was thinking about what should I do next at the same time, so it might be chaotic.
I suddenly realized that studying abroad is a long journey. Even if I had passed the exam successfully, there still have been many problems that I need to face in the future.
For example, if I want to work there, I must get higher scores than 65, whose difficulty is much higher, so it’s obvious that I would need to retry for many times in the future.
Look at my first time scores:
every part is better than before, so I did a good job, whereas not good enough!
In other words, I should be glad for such scores, because it proves two things:
- My direction is right, don’t be afraid, just keep going without doubt.
- Working hard is effective, sweat never cheats you.
After the inner thinking and review, I got much better mood. (self-adjustment is one of personal essential abilities!)
So what should I do next?
Doubtlessly, getting ready for next PTE test!
More specifically, the steps include:
- According to the report of the result, finding the weaknesses of single item
- Improving the quantity of training, which makes me adapt every part of the exam
- Shortening the preparation period, keeping focus (15 days is maximum for me)
- Finding a better practice platform for more accurate mock test and analysis (especially for Speaking part)
Once you beat yourself, you will be unstopable!
See you in 10.25.
