PTE Coaching

There are many things that distinguish PTE from its close competitors – IELTS and TOEFL. The full form of PTE is Pearson Test of English. The first and foremost distinguishing aspect of the same is the scoring pattern and the results. As the tests are completely computerized, the results are declared much quicker, typically in 5 business days. This makes it aptly suited for students who are in a bit of a rush.

 

The three-hour long computer-based test focusses on day to day English rather than high-level English language and tests a student on his/her ability to effectively understand the language as spoken daily. The multi-level grading system ensures a better understanding of the student’s proficiency in the English language. 

Speaking & Writing

This segment includes the test of two skills, which are the student’s written and spoke abilities in the English language. The segment is divided into six smaller sections, and the time taken to complete this segment is usually between 77 to 93 minute long session. Here are the sections into which this segment is divided – 

  • Personal Introduction
  • Read aloud
  • Repeat sentence
  • Describe image
  • Re-tell lecture
  • Answer short question
  • Summarize written text
  • Essay

Reading

The second section of the PTE Academic Test is the Reading Section and is usually 32 to 41 minutes long. Essentially designed to understand the candidate’s ability to understand written instructions and language, the reading segment is further divided into five sections which include –

  • Fill in the blanks
  • Multiple choice questions 
  • Re-order paragraphs
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Multiple choice questions 

Listening

The final section of PTE is the Listening section. Stretched over 45 to 57 minutes, the section is designed to ascertain the ability of the candidate to understand spoken English. The emphasis is on the ability of the student to retain the audio file played. The listening segment is divided into 8 parts, namely –

  • Summarize spoken text
  • Multiple choice questions
  • Fill the blanks
  • Highlight the correct summary
  • Multiple choice questions
  • Select missing word
  • Highlight incorrect words
  • Write from dictation
