PTE Topic Overview: Answer Short Question

How to answer this question type

For this item type, you need to respond to the question in a few words.

The audio starts playing by itself. The microphone opens after the audio is finished, and the recording status box displays “Recording.” Speak directly into the microphone (no audio signal) and answer the question in a few words.

Things you need to remember:

  • Firstly, you should speak clearly and slowly
  • Secondly, finish speaking before the progress bar reaches the end. The display will change from “Recording” to “Completed”.
  • Lastly, you only have one chance to record your response

Some Tips:

  • Don’t take too much time to answer the question.
  • Try to keep your answer as short as possible.

Answer Short Question – Scoring Mechanism:

Your response is scored based on your comprehension ability of the question you’re given in the recording and also on how brief and accurate your response is. The appropriateness of the words in your response determines whether your response is right or wrong. No credit is provided if you don’t respond or if you respond incorrectly.
