The PTE (Pearson Test of English) Reading section is one of the four main sections of the PTE Academic exam, which is a computer-based English language proficiency test commonly used for academic and immigration purposes. The PTE Reading section assesses your ability to understand written English texts in various contexts.

The PTE Reading section consists of several tasks:

  1. Multiple Choice, Choose Single Answer: You’ll read a passage and then select the best answer to a question about the passage. This task evaluates your ability to understand main ideas, supporting details, and inferential information.

  2. Multiple Choice, Choose Multiple Answers: Similar to the Multiple Choice, Choose Single Answer task, but you’ll select multiple correct answers from a list of options.

  3. Reorder Paragraphs: You’ll be presented with a jumbled passage, and you’ll need to rearrange the sentences to form a coherent paragraph.

  4. Fill in the Blanks (Reading and Writing Fill in the Blanks): You’ll read a passage with several blanks, and you’ll need to choose the correct words or phrases to fill in the blanks from a dropdown list.

  5. Fill in the Blanks (Drag and Drop): Similar to the Fill in the Blanks task mentioned above, but you’ll need to drag and drop words or phrases to fill in the blanks.

  6. Fill in the Blanks (Select Missing Word): You’ll read a passage with a gap, and you’ll need to choose the word that best completes the sentence.

  7. Highlight Correct Summary: You’ll read a passage and then choose the summary that best reflects the main points of the passage.

Your performance is scored based on your ability to comprehend main ideas, supporting details, vocabulary, and overall coherence and cohesion.
