PTE Academic is a computer-based test that measures the English language proficiency of non-native speakers who want to study or work in English-speaking countries or environments. It is developed by Pearson, a leading education company that provides learning materials and assessments worldwide (except Canada).
PTE Academic is accepted by thousands of academic institutions, professional bodies, and governments around the world as a valid and reliable indicator of English language ability. The test can be booked online and taken at any of the authorized test centers globally. The test results are usually available within 48 hours after taking the test.
PTE Academic is designed to be a fair and flexible test that reflects the real-life use of English in academic and professional contexts. It is suitable for anyone who wants to demonstrate their English skills for study or work purposes.
PTE Academic tests four skills: PTE Speaking & Writing, PTE Reading, and PTE Listening. The test consists of 20 different question types that range from multiple choice to essay writing. The test is scored by an automated system that uses artificial intelligence to evaluate the responses based on grammar, vocabulary, fluency, and pronunciation.
