PTE A is different to IELTS test, It differs in question format and scoring format . It is purely computer based test and there is no human factor unlike in IELTS.
Scoring is between the range of 0-90, with minimum of 10 and maximum of 90. If you score 65 means that is equivalent to band 7 in IELTS and 79 means band 8.
Reading section of PTE A is relatively tougher than IELTS. But if you practice for a month,then you can manage it, as most of us already have very good marks in IELTS reading. Time management is the most crucial factor in reading section. In an average you can expect to get 15 questions and time allocated is 31-41 minutes (but mostly 31-33 minutes). That’s why you need to be really quick and precise at a time . Moreover, PTE A reading has negative marking and also the marks will be multiplied by the level of difficulties. So don’t panic if you make one or two mistake, still you can score 90.
Writing is a lot really easier compare to IELTS writing. If you manage to write essay in given format with grammatically correct then you can score 79+ . Writing depends upon the your ability to type fast and precisely and if you write the same standard of IELTS where you got 7.0 then 79+ is most likely to archive. In writing there are 2 question types . one is summarize the written text, in which you have to give summary in just one sentences between 5-75 words, and next one is essay, you need to write the 300 words essay in just 20 minutes. Practice typing if you can’t type fast enough then it might be problems for you.
Listening is also easy and won’t be that much tough to get 79+. With decent practice and concentration you can manage the desire score.
Speaking can be tricky. Your will get marks based on fluency , pronunciation , and content . If you avoid to many pauses, hesitation and speak in natural speed then again you can crack this section.
