PTE Part 3 Listening Item 6 Select the missing word is the sixth question type you need to complete in the PTE listening test.
What you have to do for this question type:
With this type of question, you are judged on your ability to predict what a speaker will say based on the context of the recording. You will hear an audio recording where some words are replaced by a beep sound. You need to select the correct word or words from a choice of 3 to 5 different answers.
Task length and timing:
An audio recording that is 20-70 seconds long will play automatically and you will only be able to listen once. You will hear 2 or 3 audio recordings in total. The next recording will not begin playing until you click ‘Next’ so after you have finished listening, you have a little time to think about your answer.
To select your answer, click on it using the left button on the mouse. The answer you select is highlighted yellow. If you want to change your answer, left-click on the option again to deselect it, or left-click on a different option.
The scoring for this question type:
This question type only affects your listening score. Your answer is scored as either correct or incorrect. No credit is given for no response or an incorrect response – that’s 1 point for a correct answer and 0 points for an incorrect answer.
