Will I be penalised in PTE badly if I don't finish on time?
As a mandarin speaker, when I read aloud quickly my consonants and vowels are bad. But if I read slowly I can't finish in time! I have practiced a lot! I take the test in two weeks and don't have time for a full course...
Which do you recommend I do? Read slowly and more clearly and not finish or read quickly and finish but with poor consonant and vowel pronunciation?
You need to make sure you finish within the allocated time for eq. 35 or 40 secs. you will have time. You will get it with practice. The key is to emphasize the kw's and give meaning what you have read. It is easy to say but your confidence comes with practice. I hope it helps.
