PTE Essay Writing (Content & Form) Scoring Criteria & Weightage of Marks
PTE Essay Writing (Content & Form) Scoring Criteria, Weightage of Marks
In essay writing the marks are given based on the “content”. This is the first subsection of the essay writing scorer.
A) Three Marks – Three marks are awarded if the person adequately deals with the “prompt” of the topic, which is given to you.
B) Two Marks – Two marks are awarded, if the person deals with the prompt, but does not deal with “One Minor Aspect”.
C) One Mark – One mark is given if the person deals with the prompt, but omits a major aspect or more than one minor aspect.
D) No Mark – is given if the person does not deal properly with the prompt.
A) Two Marks – Form marks are given if the length is between 200 and 300 words you will be given with two marks.
Any of the following should never be done. Doesn’t matter how vast the topic is.
B) One Mark – If the length is between 120 and 199 or between 301 and 380 words you’ll be given one mark.
C) Zero Mark – Zero is given if the length is less than 120 or more than 380 words. If the essay is written in capital letters and contain no punctuation or only consists of bullet points or very short sentences.
So technically last two points we are never gonna do – keep in mind it doesn’t matter how vast the topic is, doesn’t matter how much elaboration it needs, doesn’t matter at all. You are never gonna write “one mark or zero marks” example.
