PTE Academic Test

What is PTE Academic Test?

Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) is an international computer-based English language test. It measures how well you can use English in daily life.

Its result is used by universities, colleges, professional bodies, and government departments which require you to achieve a minimum standard of academic English. Usually, these bodies use your PTE result to decide whether you qualify for higher education admission, professional body assessment, or an Australian visa.

PTE & IELTS Scores

A fundamental difference between PTE and IELTS scores is that PTE issues precise ‘points’ scores whilst IELTS provides a ‘Band’.

As the image below shows, 1 IELTS Band usually comprises a number of PTE points.

PTE Academic (Purpose)

The ability to communicate effectively in English is critical to successfully interact and grow in an English-speaking environment or country such as Australia.

The purpose of PTE Academic is to accurately assess your Listening, Reading, Speaking, and Writing ability for admission to educational institutions and permanent migration to Australia.

Why Choose PTE Academic?

If you’re a non-native speaker of English, or originate from a non-English speaking country, and you are required to demonstrate your academic English language ability (whether for admission or immigration purposes), then PTE Academic is the test for you.

It provides an accurate measure of your English language proficiency that is accepted at face value by Australian universities (for admission) and the Department of Immigration (for migration). They use your PTE score to determine your actual English language ability when deciding your uni or visa application.

PTE Academic (Key Features)

Because language skills are not isolated skills, PTE Academic uses a variety of integrated skills item types to indicate how well you can use English language in your day-to-day oral and written English communications.

PTE Academic test items are task-based. They represent the range of functions and situations that you will encounter every day in an English-speaking environment.

PTE Academic features 20 different item types to assess one English language skill or combinations thereof. These 20 item types are categorised under 4 PTE Academic modules: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.
