Getting a 79 each in PTE, compared to its equivalent international proficiency tests such as IELTS, is definitely much easier because of the following reasons:
As both an IELTS and PTE trainer and test-taker, I am in a good position to give you an insider’s view on this matter. It is very difficult to get an 8 in the IELTS test, while in the PTE test a good writing template will get you the full mark.
If your mother tongue has an effect on your English pronunciation, then it would be very difficult to get an 8 in an IELTS speaking test. However, in the PTE test, regardless of your accent, you can score even 9 regardless.
In the PTE test, the reading sections are very predictable and easy to master, but in the IELTS test, it is as complicated as NOT GIVEN in the text.
Ninety percent of the listening questions in the ILETS test relies on the test-taker’s spelling knowledge. But in the PTE academic test this percentage is as low as 60 per cent.
