How to Understand Your PTE Score Report: A Complete Guide

No Proper Feedback From Pearson For Your Results

Are you wondering why PTE does not give full feedback on your exam?

This blog by PTE Magic will explain everything about the PTE Score Report, including a step-by-step guide to getting detailed PTE Academic feedback on your test performance.

Let’s take a closer look!

Key Takeaways

  • The computer scores your PTE test using an evolving code that learns from the test taker’s answers to improve its scoring system.
  • The latest PTE Score Report removes the Enabling Skills while including the Skills Profile and personalized suggestions for detailed feedback.
  • Checking your PTE Score Report is free and simple through your MyPTE account

How is Your PTE Test Scored?

A computer with the latest and most up-to-date technology evaluates your PTE test. With this, PTE tests ensure their candidates receive fair and correct scores. 

Essentially, a computer grades your score, meaning you won’t interact with a human examiner. This is an advantage since it can reduce the unfairness that can occur due to human bias. There won’t be any chance that the teacher will judge you on your English skills. You can focus on performing the test to the best of your ability.

So, how does the computer score your test? It uses an algorithm, code that collects hundreds of thousands of test-takers’ answers to improve its scoring system. This program gets smarter every year because it learns from more tests. When you take the test, you give PTE a chance to evolve its scoring system.


Updates in the PTE Score Report

Before November 2021, the PTE test report’s format was different. Here are their latest changes:

Remove Enabling Skills

The report rates your English skills from 10 to 90 for Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing.

You can see how good your English is in the test report. The report gives you a score between 10 and 90 based on the Global Scale of English. This report will show specific scores for each section: Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing. These scores are based on your answers on the exam.

Before November 2021, the report had a section called Enable Skills. Now, they removed it and replaced it with Skills Profile. This new change gives the candidate more detailed feedback on their performance. 

The purpose is to help you improve your future English and get a better PTE score. Teachers and trainers can also review their students’ abilities, especially for students who want to retake the test.

Online Skills Portfolio 

You are the only one who can view the new Skill Profile. Rest assured, this information won’t get leaked to the schools or institutions you’re applying to. As mentioned above, the purpose is only for test-takers and teachers or trainers to review.
