IELTS and PTE are the most recognized English proficiency tests all around the world. 

One of the top English language proficiency exams in the world is IELTS. IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 institutions and immigration authorities worldwide.

The IELTS test's holistic approach, according to experts, is what makes it more widely accepted than the PTE and TOEFL tests. It is divided into four sections: Speaking, Writing, Reading, and Listening.

Because both examinations scored highly on English Proficiency, they are both equally good in their own ways. However, because PTE tests are given online and results are generated online, removing the risk of human bias, they are more reliable than IELTS scores. The IELTS exam is simpler.

Due to how the IELTS exam is graded, it is much simpler than the PTE.

Both exams are necessary for students who are considering studying abroad.

Both assessments are equally important, well-known, and necessary.

Apart from this, the application fee for both exams is different:
PTE costs INR 13,700 while IELTS costs INR 14,700.
The exam duration for both exams is also different.
The IELTS Exam lasts approximately 170 minutes, or 2 hours and 45 minutes. The following is the IELTS exam’s section-by-section timetable:

Listening Section – 30 minutes

Reading Section – 60 minutes

Writing Section – 60 minutes

Speaking Section – 11 – 14 minutes. 

The duration of the PTE exam is 191 minutes or 3 hours, with the following sections having different durations:

Writing and Speaking Section ( Together ) – 77 to 93 minutes

Listening Section – 45 to 57 minutes

Reading Section – 32 to 40 minutes 

Here are some tips for your test preparation:
Take a lot of practise exams before the final exam. You should be familiar with the format and pattern of the test to prevent any misunderstandings or delays.

Keep an eye on the time restriction for each section. You must effectively manage your time as you tackle each segment to prevent missing any questions.

We might mix up American and British English when we write. Learn to differentiate between the two, and use only one English during the exam. Make sure your spelling and grammar are accurate as well.

While completing the listening and reading sections, watch and listen to some English-language movies and recordings to hone your listening skills. Read the suggested English novels every day to expand your vocabulary.

Reading online articles, books, journals, newspapers, magazines, and other publications will help you become more fluent in English.
