We at Englishfirm understand how daunting a task it can be giving your first PTE exam and that’s why we
have compiled a list of few mostly asked enquiries and tried to enlighten the students to the maximum.

1. PTE Vs IELTS Score

There are lots of difference between PTE scoring and IELTS and one of the biggest differences is that in
PTE each and every module contributes mark towards overall score. In simple terms in order to core
good marks in reading one needs to perform well in speaking, listening and writing as well. However, in
IELTS it is totally opposite of it one needs to perform well in individual module and performing good in
speaking will have no effect in your reading score.

5. Selecting PTE Coaching

First and foremost importance while selecting a coaching institute is to meet with the trainer who will be
training you to get the PTE score. Only once you are comfortable with the trainer and you know that they
are dedicated towards you one can make an informed decision and that’s why Englishfirm provides free
PTE demo for student in order to freely contact with the trainers. Another thing to consider is your
strength and weakness. Most of the times students enroll into group classes with 30 other students where
they don’t get the attention that was needed and ends up wasting money and not getting their score.
However, at Englishfirm we have one-on-one coaching option designed to meet your score and still be in
your affordable budget range.
