01 Cross - MarkingUnlike other traditional English exams (IELTS, TOEFL, etc.), the PTE test uses a more comprehensive cross-scoring mechanism, so it is very beneficial to students who have weaker writing skills in IELTS. Take the listening part of IELTS as an example. It is necessary to listen and complete the spelling of words. For IELTS, it will only affect the scores of the listening part. However, in the PTE test, both listening and writing will be marked.
