"Less time consuming compared to IELTS in which a separated speaking test has to be taken at a different time. As an introvert, I feel that speaking tests on computers help me to be more focused and less nervous. Therefore, PTE more accurately reflects my speaking ability in English." 
Van, Test Taker, Singapore
