PTE Band score
The PTE score is generated by a computer. There are two types of scoring:
- Partial Credit
- Correct or incorrect
Partial Credit: All correct answers receive partial credit. Points will be deducted from the points earned for correct answers for all incorrect answers. For incorrect answers, no points are awarded.
Correct or incorrect: For each correct response, the candidate will receive one point. There will be no points awarded for incorrect answers.
Calculate Your PTE Score: The candidate's overall score will be calculated based on their performance in all sections. PTE score calculators use the sum and average to calculate the overall score. Communicative Skills and Enabling Scores are two important components of the PTE score.
PTE Communicative Skills Score: This category's score includes reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The skill has a score range of 10 to 90 points.
PTE Enabling Skills Score: Grammar, spelling, pronunciation, vocabulary, oral fluency, and written discourse are all part of the PTE Enabling Skills Score. The enabling skill score ranges from 10 to 90 points.
For the overall PTE score, add all Enabling Skills scores and divide the total by 6. This, along with the four communicative skill scores, is averaged. The overall PTE score is calculated by taking the average of these five parts.
