Space between

I have this situation on Latex. How can I eliminate this space between the \section{PESTA} and the tabular?

\begin{tabular}{ |p{5cm}|p{10cm}|  }
 \multicolumn{2}{|c|}{PEST+A} \\

How can I solve this?

    Please post fully working examples of your code. Your problem is not reproducible - there's no gap over here. Maybe it's because of a missing package? Maybe you want to try to wrap the tabular environment into a table environment and then force it to the position with \begin{table}[H].

    What happens if you insert the instruction \raggedbottom immediately before \begin{document}?

    What follows this table? I'm guessing another table that is fairly large.

(Earlier comment re-posted as an answer.)

It looks like your document uses the \flushbottom setting. To change this, insert the instruction


immediately before \begin{document}.
