PTE Score

The PTE Score measures the overall performance of the candidate in the English Language. The overall performance consists of communication skills and enabling skills

Communication skills include listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Enabling skills include vocabulary, spelling, pronunciation, oral fluency, and written discourse such as writing content effectively in a properly structured manner.

Communication skills scores consist of content scores that identify how content has been addressed and form scores which consist of formal characteristics such as numbers of words used in the content.

PTE scoring is of two types:

  1. Correct or incorrect – Items in different sections are scored as either correct or incorrect. Points are allotted if the item is correct and no points are allotted if the item is incorrect.
  2. Partial Credit – Apart from the correct and incorrect scoring, some items are scored as partially correct only if they found near to appropriate. Points are also allotted for partially correct items but they are less than the maximum score allotted to the correct.
