PTE Academic Exam Modules

Like any other English language assessment exam, the PTE Academics exam contains 3 modules.

Speaking and Writing

This part of the exam lasts for around 67 minutes with 6-7 total tasks. These include illustrating photographs, answering short questions, self-introductions, summarizing large texts, and writing the given essays. Each task contributes to the overall score of the exam.


The second module of the PTE exam; reading ends in 30 minutes in which you’ll have to answer five different question types. You may asked to fill in the blanks, answer single or multiple MCQs, and rearrange paragraphs. 


During this module, you’ll have to listen to audio and video clips for once during which you are allowed to note the points for your convenience. The time limit for the listening module is half an hour to 43 minutes and includes eight types of questions. 

Every module contributes significantly to the total evaluation of a candidate’s English language competency, offering a thorough evaluation that is critical for both academic and professional endeavors. To get the required grades, one must be well familiar with each module’s format and study accordingly. 

How much does it take to reevaluate your PTE score?

If you’re not satisfied with your grades in PTE, you may request a rescore but you’ll have to do it within 14 days after the announcement of the result. Also, requesting a reevaluation requires an additional charge of around 125 US$ which is refundable if your score changes.

The reevaluation will not apply to the whole exam instead the writing questions will get rescored as there is no probability of errors in marking other questions. Also, you can consider rescoring for only the recent PTE you took if you’ve taken the exam more than once. 

Personally, it is not recommended to reevaluate your PTE score instead you should observe your weak areas and go for a retake as rescoring has very little to no chance of raising your scores.
