Do I need to have specific computer skills to take the PTE exam?

No, there’s no need to have any advanced computer skills to take the PTE exam. You just need basic computer literacy, that is sufficient. The PTE test is user-friendly, there are tutorials provided before the exam begins to familiarize the candidate with the format. Some straightforward tasks include typing, using a mouse, etc. Although, it’s a great idea to practice before or sample tests to make sure that you are comfortable with the computerised format before the actual exam & fully-prepared for the actual exam.
