What These Score Means?

Every institution has different criteria for scores. Please check with your institution but the general idea is that 79+ is considered an outstanding score.

The overall score is calculated by various components, it's not just a sum of points scored on each question.

Similarly, Listening Scores doesn't mean that you are scored only on the answers you gave in Part III Listening. They evaluate every question where your listening skills were used to speak. This is true for every score in the scorecard.

Good Luck for PTE Academic!
