Complete Your PTE Test Efficiently Using Different Exam-Labs Test Prep Courses and Online Materials



PTE Test

There are plenty of English language exams at present, but none as meticulously challenging as the PTE test. Even native English speakers can’t easily get through the sharp lenses of PTE.

But like all pursuits sprinkled with hard work, focus, and relentless utilization of study materials, a well-deserving high score is feasible. So, let’s explore the steps you need to take to get the results you are dreaming of.

The First Step: Learn Deeply What PTE Is for

The PTE exam evaluates your overall real-life command of the English language. It is referred to as the Pearson Test of English and is taken by hundreds of individuals seeking to assess and verify their skills needed to work or study in English-speaking countries.

The Second Step: Be Informed of the Test Format

This step is the cardinal rule for all Exam-Labs tests: don’t jump right into the exam without checking its structure and question formats. For example, in PTE, the tasks are spread out into multiple-choice, essay writing, and fill-in-the-blank types. Regarding the sections, the first part of the test is all about Speaking & Writing. The next one, on the other hand, is Reading. Finally, the last part is intended for measuring your listening skills.

The Third Step: Collect the Most Promising Study Resources

A reliable provider of test prep courses for PTE is Pearson itself. Get ahold of the Official Guide to PTE Academic that comes with intensive discussions and mock tests. This one touches on different sections of the assessment, so you can easily incorporate the topics into your learning. You may also utilize its Practice Tests Plus as supplementary material.

The Fourth Step: Execute Your Study Plan

Rereading relevant information on the rules of English pays off. Through this, you’ll realize things you thought you already knew but actually, you don’t. To prepare for the Listening module, get your ears used to different accents so as not to get surprised during the exam.

Speaking of taking practice tests, an ingenious way to train yourself using them is by studying in an environment devoid of comfort and silence. Sounds ridiculous, right? But taking your trial attempts in such conditions will prepare you for any discomfort that may emerge during the real PTE. Hence, it will be easier for your mind to stay focused despite challenging surroundings.

The Fifth Step: Head to the Pearson Test Center with Confidence

Once the pivotal exam date arrives, walk to the test centre like you’re about to ace your PTE. Why? Because you would! You will nail the assessment as long as you will follow each of the above steps with consistency. Claim your success and take it easy. Now is the time to relax and hope all will go well. Also, notice that the test spans for 3 hours, and you’ll be given only one 10-minute break, so take advantage of doing full-length practice tests to prepare yourself for this process.


Allot some time to familiarize yourself with all the details of the PTE test. From then, you can take matters into your own hands. Have faith in test prep courses, put in the work, and seal your PTE success!

OOU Introduces Work-Study Programme to Reduce Attrition



work-study programme

By Adedapo Adesanya

To boost employment numbers and reduce the alarming attrition of students, Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ago Iwoye, Ogun State, has announced the commencement of a work-study programme for skilled students to earn while still attending classes.

The university said in a statement issued by its Registrar, Mr Femi Ogunwomoju, that the initiative would help ease the financial burden on parents and guardians and reduce the rate at which students drop out of school due to financial constraints.

Mr Ogunwomoju said the programme, through the directorate of entrepreneurship studies, “will enable students with demonstrable and proven vocational skills to work in the university and earn some stipends and still attend classes.”

Nigeria has the second highest number of unemployed youths in the world, with 53 per cent of the youth population without jobs. This country is second to only South Africa, which has 61 per cent youth unemployment.

OOU said it launched the work-study programme during its 40th anniversary in February to checkmate the increasing rate of dropouts in the institution.

“When we noticed the rate at which students were dropping out, we did the SWOT analysis of what happened to them,” said the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Mr Ayodeji Agboola, was quoted as saying in the statement.

“We came to realise that the major problem there is funding. So, we instituted immediate funding, but of course, it cannot take care of all of them,” the professor said.

He said the university, therefore, resolved to cater for 500 students under the work-study programme.

“With work studies, we are sure that the majority of them will be accommodated, and that will also solve the problem,” he said.

Students of the university who are interested and qualified to be part of the programme are requested to fill out a form.

The university management, therefore, urged interested qualified students should register through the Directorate of Entrepreneurship Studies within two weeks beginning from May 25.

He noted that the number of annual scholarship recipients was increased from 100 to 200, as education should not be a luxury reserved for a select few but accessible to all.

By investing in the academic journeys of these exceptional students, the leading end-to-end financial institution will not only make a difference in their lives but also contribute to the development and prosperity of the nation as a whole.
