How to Pass TRCN PQE Exam

To help teachers prepare and pass the PQE CBT, I have highlighted very important points to note and they are as follows:

Step One:

Be familiar with a computer keyboard. Get to know the shortcuts and practice severally because this gives you a better chance than someone who’s not familiar with the keys on a computer keyboard. Secondly, learn how to move the Mouse pointer with ease, this will help you to choose quickly and correctly.

Step Two:

Your preparation will improve your chances of recognizing the right answers and answering them correctly. TRCN PQE questions are mostly drawn from educational courses (e.g. history of education, curriculum development, classroom management, educational technology, educational management, etc).

Others will be drawn from general studies (e.g. English Language, Statistics, ICT, and Current Affairs). You can find the full list of TRCN syllabus here.

Step Three:

Practice, practice, practice!!! With a good CBT platform. Even if you’re familiar with a computer and the internet, you need to constantly practice with an online CBT platform, so you can work on your speed and perfect the art of online exams.

Step Four:

Learn to time yourself when taking the exam. Before you start any exam, you should be able to share the time proportionally between the questions. E.g. If you have to answer 40 questions, and you’re given 50 mins. It means that you need to spend an average of 1 min 15 secs (50 mins divided by 40) on each subject. If you realize that you can’t resolve the question within 1 min 15 secs, you should be smart enough to skip it and proceed to the next question.
