The examination carries out trials in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The whole test in a solitary meeting, enduring 3 hours, is taken by sitting on a desktop in a suitable exam environment.
Essay writing is a mandatory question type in all English language proficiency test. PTE Academic is no different. PTE Writing Module comprises of two question types: a) Writing a summary for a given Text or Paragraph. b) Writing an Essay on a Given Topic. Unlike the first type, the essay writing question determines a candidate’s writing potential and knowledge over standard English vocabulary, spelling, grammar and sentence structure.
The PTE writing module assesses a candidate’s command over English vocabulary, grammar, understandability and spellings. Apart from these two, that solely manifest on evaluating a participant’s English writing skills, there are question types in other PTE modules that also evaluates your writing proficiency and adds up the score in the overall test.
