Test takers will usually hear a lecture/dialogue（40s-90s）before required to accordingly choose 2 or 3 correct answers from given 5 to 7 options. For each wrongly selected option, 1 point will be deducted unless this deduction will make the score for this task less than 0. This type of question usually includes 1 or 2 tasks.
Multiple choice questions make up a negligible score in the Listening section so they deserve very low priority in the preparation of PTE. Before each audio clip is played, start reading the question asked and then listen to the audio in a targeted way, this will help get the key information that answers the question.
According to the scoring of this question type, candidates gain 1 point for each correct choice and lose 1 point for each incorrect choice. So don’t choose more than what you are sure of. Otherwise, at least 1 option should be selected.
Multiple choice-choice questions make up a negligible score in the Listening Section, so complete them as quickly as possible, to spend more time on a more well-deserved WFD. If you are sure of the correct answer, each question can take up to 1.5 minutes (with audio playback). If not, don’t spend too much time here, just make a preliminary selection right after playing the sound and enter the next quest.
Before taking the mock/real exam, practice a set of questions to familiarize yourself with them. And pay attention to time management.
