I know some people will say that they can get good scores without preparation.

Salute to those super-geniuses, but I am talking about normal people like me.

Everybody knows how important it is to prepare for the PTE exam to get 60 or 70+ scores.

But the problem is that they do not have the information about the right steps for the PTE exam preparation.

I have seen a lot of candidates who are attempting this exam and working day and night but still do not get a satisfactory result.

This is going to be a detailed blog in which, with the preparation tips, I will suggest some books for PTE preparation, exam preparation material, online exam preparation websites, preparation tips for exam day and many other things.

Section Wise Tips For PTE Exam Preparation

PTE Exam Preparation Tips Section Wise

Now let’s check tips for exam preparation for each section.

As you know, there are four sections in this exam, and you have to get good scores in each section to get good overall scores.

Moreover, you should know that it is a must that you should get good scores in each section to increase your chances of getting a visa.

Because if you are applying for a visa, then authorities will check your level of knowledge in the English language for all sections.

So, you can’t take any of the sections lightly.

Here are the section-wise tips that will help you to get good scores in the PTE exam.

Speaking Section

This is the first section of the PTE exam; in this section, you have to complete tasks like Repeat sentences, Re-tell lecture, Read aloud, Describe images and Answer short questions.

You should have 20 to 25 minutes to complete this task.

Note: The candidates have to attempt tasks of speaking and writing sections together; they will have 54 to 67 minutes for this.

But for managing time, it is advised by many experts that candidates should complete the speaking section in 20 minutes to 25 minutes so that they should have enough time for the writing section.

So, these are the tips for the preparation of the speaking section of the PTE exam:

  • Practice your speaking section in such a way that you can complete this section in 20 to 25 minutes; if you are asking why, then I have already given you the reason.
  • The Read-aloud is one of the most difficult question types of the PTE exam; this exam gives you scores on the basis of your fluency and pronunciation, so work on your fluency and pronunciation.
  • Practice different types of templates for different pictures; this will help you get good scores in the Describe image question type of the PTE exam.
  • Practice as much as you can for Repeat sentences; the repeat sentence is the biggest reason for fewer scores of the candidates in the PTE speaking.

Writing Section

Candidates have to attempt tasks of writing and speaking sections together in the PTE exam.

They have to complete tasks like summarizing written text and writing essays.

The candidates should try to complete speaking tasks quickly so that they can get enough time to complete tasks of the writing section.

These are the tips that will help you to get good scores in the writing section of PTE Exam:

  • The writing section is the easiest section to get good scores, but this section can take your majority of the time, so manage the time properly for the writing and speaking section.
  • Keep your answers simple; in the writing section, you have to write something on a topic, so talk directly about the topic, don’t roll up things.
  • You have limited time for the writing section, but still, give some time to note some points around your topic before writing.
  • Format your write up in a proper way; it will help you to get good scores in your PTE exam.
  • Write everything you want to say about that topic clearly.
  • Re-check your answer after writing; check if there is any grammatical, spelling, or another type of error in your answer.

Reading Section

Candidates will have around 30 minutes for this section, and they have to complete tasks like fill in the blank, multiple choice (multiple), re-order paragraphs, and multiple choice (single).

These are the tips for preparation of the reading section of the PTE exam:

  • Read all the questions before reading the passage; by doing so, you will know what type of answers you have to find in the passage.
  • Understand the passage’s message and look for some keywords in the passage that can help you get good scores in the PTE exam.
  • Answer every question in this section; there is no negative marking in the reading section, so take advantage of it and answer every question, don’t leave any one of them.
  • Convey your answer using different words, don’t copy-paste the answer from the passage; your answer should look a little different from the passage text.

Listening Section

Candidates will have around 30 to 45 minutes for this section and have to complete tasks like summarize spoken test, multiple choice(multiple), fill in the blank, highlight correct summary, multiple-choice (single), select missing word, highlight incorrect words, write from dictation.

These are the tips for the preparation of the listening section of the PTE exam:

  • Listen to English songs, movies, and news; it will help you prepare for the PTE exam listening section.
  • If you face problems in understanding the English movies and news, then at the start you can take help of the subtitles, and after some time you can watch these without subtitles.
  • Listening section questions have negative marking, so think twice before answering a question.
  • Listen to all the recordings carefully; don’t think about anything else while listening to recordings.
  • The “Summarize spoken test” of the listening section accounts for 2 points out of a total of 10 points, meaning if you just write some words in this section, your score will not be zero, so you do not have to take much tension in this question type.
  • In multiple-choice (multiple), read the questions before hearing the recordings; because of this, you will get an idea about what type of answer you should look for in recording; it will help you to get good points in this question type.
  • Finish multiple choice(single) question types as soon as possible; these question types have an insignificant amount of points, so you should not invest much time in this section.
