Partly. You will continue to receive scores for your Overall Score and your Communicative Skills (listening, reading, speaking, and writing), just as before.
The key difference is that we have now removed the Enabling Skills segment. Replacing it is a new, accompanying Skills Profile, which shows how well you did across eight different language skill areas. These areas are:
Open response speaking and writing – Giving your own spoken or written response in your own words
Reproducing spoken and written language – Repeating or copying spoken or written information
Extended writing – Giving a long written response
Short writing – Giving a short written response
Extended speaking – Giving a long spoken response
Short speaking – Giving a short spoken response
Multiple-skills comprehension – Using more than one skill (e.g. listening to a clip and then giving a spoken response)
Single-skill comprehension – Using only one skill (e.g. reading)
Each skill area has a bar that indicates how well you performed in that particular skill. The fuller the bar, the higher your level of accuracy in that skill.
It also has a set of personalized recommendations that provide targeted advice to help you further improve your English skills or – if necessary – identify where you can improve to increase your PTE score.
The Skills Profile is not used by institutions or governments for admissions or visa purposes, and they do not have access to it; it is just for you to help you better master your English skills.
