Strategies and Tips 

  • The first thing you need to do is know how this task is scored. You gain a point for every correct response that is ticked and lose a point for every incorrect response. This means that it is not a good strategy to select all the options available, as it will usually just give you a score of zero.
  • Time management is of great importance in this task as well. Read the options available to you first and then read the paragraph quickly and comprehend it’s meaning in a general sense, but keep your focus on the specific words and meanings of the options you had read before. 
  • Keep a look out for any words or phrases that you see are being used often. If a phrase of two or three words in the passage is being repeated in the options, pay special attention to those and you will find that the answer is probably related to the passage.
  • PTE reading multiple choice multiple answer practice must include a lot of questions from previous tests as that can help you get familiar with the task.


Your ability to analyse, understand, and evaluate a short reading text on an academic subject is assessed in the Multiple Choice, Multiple Answers section. If all of your answers are correct, you will obtain the highest possible score for this question type. 

Partial scoring will be applied if a certain part of your answer is correct but the other is incorrect. 

Multiple Choice, Multiple Answer is one of few PTE tasks where there is negative marking. Hence, it becomes very important that you are confident in the responses you give. 


  • This task only scores you based on reading; your listening, writing and speaking scores are not affected by this task.
