PTE Scores 2024: Retake & Review

PTE exam result 2024: In this section, we are going to be talking about the processes involved in retaking and rescoring the PTE exam

Steps involved in Rescoring your PTE exam result 2024

If candidates are unsatisfied with their PTE Score they can request a rescore. However, since the PTE Academic is a computer-scored test, the chance of an error is highly minimalized. Only spoken responses and open-ended written responses are rescored. Candidates can only request a rescore for their most recent PTE Academic Test and candidates are barred from requesting a rescore if they have already either scheduled another test or sent their score to an institution. In the event the score changes, the new score will replace the previous score and the original score report will be reissued to reflect the new score. Important points around PTE Exam rescoring include:

  1. All PTE tests are machine scored and it is highly unlikely that your overall scores will change
  2. Only spoken responses and open-ended written responses are rescored
  3. In the event that your PTE score changes (increases or decreases), the machine rescore fee will be refunded 
  4. If your PTE score changes, a new score card would be issued which would replace the previous PTE scores and reflect new scores
  5. Re-scoring requests can be raised once per test registration and for your most recent PTE exam
  6. You cannot request a re-score if you have already scheduled another test

Steps Involved in Retaking your PTE exam result 2024

A lot of times candidates are unable to get their desired PTE scores and look to re-appear for the same. Candidates wanting to retake the PTE Academic test can register for a second PTE exam only after they have received the PTE results of their last test. There is no cap on the number of PTE exam attempts, however, candidates can only book one test at a time and new appointments can be booked up to six months in advance.

Q:   What is the required score to crack PTE exam?

A:

According to the Pearson PLC Group, PTE test takers should aim to score a minimum of CEFR B2 level, which equals to a PTE Academic score range of 59-75. With that level of English proficiency, the students become eligible to apply for most of the universities abroad. These scores imply that the student can follow academic-level instructions and participate in academic education both coursework and student life. This level of English is also considered eligible for professional registration, employment and applying for Australian skilled migration visas. Any PTE score corresponding to an above-CEFR B2 level is considered a good PTE score.

A:

Your overall score is calculated based on your individual scores in each of the four skill sections (Speaking, Writing, Reading, Listening). Each section is weighted equally, and your final score reflects your balanced English proficiency across all communication areas.
