The tips to crack the PTE Reading section:

a) Computerized exam pattern
As the entire PTE exam is computerized, its important for students to learn the basic technicalities and QWERTY keypad pattern. If unknown to the basics of computer, students will find it difficult to complete the PTE Reading test in allotted time.

b) Focus on yellow highlight
As the PTE Reading test has many MCQ questions, please note when the optional answers are highlighted with yellow, then your answer is accepted by the machine. If you leave a PTE Reading question without yellow highlight, you might not be marked for the same.

c) PTE Reading strategy
As the Reading section of PTE exam has many content to read, here is an easy alternate to that. For each content, you can start with a fast read and then move on to the questions. After reading each questions, find similar keywords in the content (as mentioned in the question) and map your answer.

d) Skipping PTE Reading questions
Do not skip questions in PTE Reading exam. On doing so, you wont be marked at all for a particular question. In case you do a guesswork for the answers you don?t know, you have the scope of getting marked. Don?t leave that scoring opportunity.

e) For Re-ordering paragraph questions
In this, do read the content before hand and also after you complete arranging the sequence. This is mainly to ensure that your answer is absolutely correct.
