PTE (Pearson Test of English) is a standardized English language test that assesses the English language proficiency of non-native English speakers.
The goal of the PTE results is to prove whether a student is proficient enough to attend college or migrate to an English-speaking country.
The examination is taken on a computer in a secure test center environment. PTE Academic measures your English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in a single test. It is the only computerized test where all the writing, speaking, reading, and listening sections are tested within two hours. Unlike IELTS or TOEFL, PTE applicants don’t need to appear for the face-to-face interview for the speaking section.
There are three types of the PTE tests. Namely: the PTE Academic Test, PTE General Test and the PTE Young Learners.
PTE is accepted by countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, Russia, Ireland, New Zealand, the USA, and the UK. The governments of these countries rely on PTE scores as general eligibility for visa and immigration services to non-native English speakers. Over 3,000 universities worldwide grant admission to students based on their PTE scores.
