The PTE Academic assesses the real life English skills you will need at your university and living abroad. Not only does PTE assess speaking, listening, reading and writing, but also reflects real life settings, as well as testing academic skills.
PTE Academic is the world’s leading computer-based test of English for study abroad and immigration. If one is planning to apply to universities or for a UK or Australian visa and need proof of English proficiency, one can use the PTE Academic score. PTE Academic assesses listening, reading, speaking and writing in a single three-hour online test session.
To complete the PTE Academic test, a candidate needs to go to a secure Pearson Test Centre. The candidate uses a computer and headset to listen to, read and respond to questions.
PTE Academic assesses real life, academic content. During the test, the candidate hears excerpts from lectures and views graphs and charts. The candidate hears a range of accents in the test, from British and American to non-native speakers, in order to be exposed to the type of accents that may be encountered in everyday life.
Candidates can schedule their tests in as little as twenty-four hours in advance, appear for a single three-hour test session and receive results within five business days.
PTE offers flexible test dates. In 2014, test sessions were available 300 days of the year. Candidates can choose from test centres in 150 locations worldwide. PTE is approved by the UK and Australian Governments. Thousands of academic programmes, including Harvard, Yale and INSEAD accept PTE score.
Extra score reports are not charged additionally. Candidates can send their scores to as many institutions as they choose.
