Test takers will usually hear an audio clip and see a textual passage with blanks, required to write a correct word down in each blank according to the audio clip. . This type of question usually consists of 1 or 2 tasks.


The SMW questions make up a negligible score in the Listening Section, so they deserve a very low priority during PTE preparation. Pay attention to the progress bar that plays the sound and as it nears the end, pay close attention to memorizing the last sentence, this helps figure out what’s missing in the beep.

Time Span

The SMW questions take up a negligible score in the Listening Section, so complete them as quickly as possible, to spend more time on 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.

Practice Tasks

Before taking the mock/real exam, practice a set of questions to familiarize yourself with them. And pay attention to time management.
