Before you invest your hard earned money in buying one of these question banks. Please go through some of the little known facts about these PTE Real Exam Questions Bank and learn how effective they are? and from who you should really buy it?
Ever since Australian Universities and Immigration department started accepting PTE as an alternative test to IELTS for English proficiency, PTE got popular overnight (since late 2014) among students and skill immigrants. Mainly because of its impartial method of marking as it is marked by computer, not by some biased human who somehow hesitates to give more than 6 points in writing section even if you do Ph.D. in English language.
Since then so many PTE coaching and related business have erupted all over the world. One of the PTE business formats that have emerged since the dawn of 2017 is “PTE REAL exam question bank.” This business idea started taking shape due to the fact that PTE has limited test questions and they keep repeating same test questions with certain permutation and combination. If you have given PTE test more than once then you may have realized that some questions indeed does repeat.
Currently there are more than 10 Real exam question providers and some of them are getting pretty big and organized. Moreover, some of them are getting so aggressive in their approach that they have started ads to sell their product. Due to this increased competition, some even have started making false claims about their question bank which often misleads PTE students. Therefore, here I am going to answer some of the most frequently asked questions that you should ask before buying these question banks.
1) In real, how effective are these Real Exam questions Banks? And how many percentage or chances it has got to come in my next PTE test?
2) Which providers has got the best and maximum number of real exam questions?
3) Which one should you really buy?
Question 1: In real, how effective are these Real Exam questions Banks? And how many percentage or chances it has got to come in my next PTE test?
Some sellers are claiming that more than 50% of their question bank may come in your next PTE test. Similarly, some are claiming that 3 in every 10 questions in PTE test may come from their test bank. Let me tell you straight away that these are just a marketing gimmicks to lure the uninformed students into buying their product.
Well, the truth is, no one can say it for sure or give any number or percentage on how many of them may come in your exam. Why so? Cause as per one estimate, Pearson group has got more than 700 test modules and each test module has got minimum 67 to maximum 89 questions and they keep adding new test question modules every 3-6 months. Even if you consider minimum question per test module then it comes whooping 46,900 questions (67 question per test x 700 total modules). And currently, in the market, there are around 900 real exam questions, which is like only 1.92% of total questions. So you can say you have around 2% of chances for any question to come in your test.
However, it depends on your luck as well. Some students have reported to me that they have got all questions from reading fill-in-the-blanks and some said they just got 2-3 or none. Likewise, same goes for other sections. But, even if you don’t get lucky, still these questions are a very good resource for practice. And the less known secret about cracking PTE exam to get 79+ each score is not real exam question or your luck but its three magic words, “Practice-Practice-Practice.” I have written more on how you can practice for PTE exam here>> you will get all the free resources and proven action plan there.
Question 2: Which providers has got the best and maximum number of real exam questions?
Quick fact check – the term “PTE Real Exam question bank” was first coined by me and now it is being used by almost everyone 😉
Currently, there are more than 10 Real exam question bank providers and I can understand it’s very difficult for anyone to choose between so many choices. The paradox of too many Choices. I will give certain criteria or testing parameters, which may help you to make your mind to find the right match for you.
2.1 How many questions they have?
Well, currently the top 5 providers have more or less 95% of the similar content. I know some students who have bought from all top 5 providers with a hope that they will get different questions but the fact is that once one question is out in the market, same question get circulated and updated in all the questions banks. It really doesn’t matter who you choose as everyone has got same questions. So you can choose any provider from this parameter.
2.2 How often do they update their questions?
Almost all of them update their question bank regularly due to cut-throat competition in this small niche segment. So again you can choose any provider from this parameter.
2.3 How easy is it to access their question bank from any device?
Access from Multiple Device:
This is a very good parameter to decide from. You should choose the question bank provider which gives flexibility of accessing it from multiple devices like; Mobile, Laptop, and IPad etc. There are some providers who allow you to access it from only one device and some of them don’t even let you take screenshots. That is kind of a bummer for me as you can’t carry one device all the time. So choose your question bank provider wisely. (I think by now you know that none of the providers allows you to download or take print out due to tough competition.)
The Question Format:
Almost 99% of new question bank provider has simply copy-pasted from older providers and didn’t spend much time on its format and user experience (UX)/usability. For instance, they provide reading fill-in-the-blanks questions with answers in them. They didn’t put effort to separate the answers from questions. So, it becomes quite difficult to practice with such resources as you can’t memorize every single word of it. Just for your knowledge, I am the only provider who provides questions and answers separately with simple to read UX (doing marketing here ;).
2.4 The price factor
Next best parameter is who is providing at the lowest price. As almost everyone has got the similar questions and if you can access it from multiple devices and has got decent usability format then the price could be the only determining factor remains. You will be amazed to know that one of the real exam question provider sells it at $11,000 through one-to-one personal selling channel but the sad part is they also provide the same questions what a $150 or $160 provider provides. So don’t get influenced by deceptive marketing tactics.
Question 3: So finally, which one should you really buy?
I will not misguide you by saying I am the best and buy from me only. Instead I would suggest you that, you can buy from anyone but just keep all the aforementioned points in your mind before buying so that you do not have to waste your money on buying it again and again.
