The Reading part comes with a skill test of your Reading ability. This will take about 32-41 minutes of the entire paper and is often given preference after the first section. Re-ordering, multiple choice questions and filling in the blanks are some of the several question types used in this section which test your response to the varied usage of the English language.

The Reading section of the PTE is broken down into 5 sub-sections:

  • Multiple Choice, Single Answer
  • Multiple Choice, Multiple Answers
  • Re-ordering of paragraphs
  • Fill in the blanks: Reading
  • Fill in the blanks: Reading and Writing


Primarily based on video and audio clips, the third section lasts for about 45 to 57 minutes on an average. In this section, you will have to listen to the audio/visual recording and respond to a number of different question types.

The types of questions asked are:

  • Summarising the spoken text
  • Multiple choice questions (choose multiple)
  • Multiple choice questions (choose single)
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Highlight correct summary
  • Select the missing word
  • Highlight all incorrect words
  • Write the dictated words

Pro tip: This section requires you to have strong and effective communication skills, such as active listening. It is important you pay attention throughout the duration of audio and video clips.

The Examination Process

First and foremost, you will need to find your nearest PTE (Pearson Test) centre. We help our students find the nearest PTE center and get them booked in. With the help of a headset you will listen to the questions provided by the computer, and then you will have to read and respond to the question. The duration of the exam is 3 hours. You will have to listen to excerpts from real-life scenarios and look at various charts and graphs to analyse and respond to.

You will also have to listen to a range of English accents used in daily life. Doing this will help you in building up your confidence and understanding of the English language. Hopefully, this has given you a broad idea of the PTE Academic exam and what is within it. If you want to achieve the highest possible marks on your PTE exam, enrol in our PTE Preparation Course. As an informed EnglishWise student, you will have an upper hand over the others.
