PTE is one of the English language tests that are widely taken all over the world. PTE stands for Pearson English Language Tests. It is a computer-based test conducted by candidates from all over the world as the test is used as an admission standard by universities abroad. For countries like Australia, PTE is also used for immigration. The exam focuses on the daily use of language to prepare and assess students for living and studying in English-speaking countries.
What is a PTE?
PTE (Pearson Test of English) is an English language proficiency test, used as an eligibility criterion for the admissions process at universities around the world. There are two formats for PTE: Academic PTE and General PTE.
PTE announces results in a much shorter amount of time than its close competitors such as IELTS and TOEFL. Because the scores for PTE tests are computerized, the results are more accurate and faster than other tests. This makes the PTE test a favorite with students who are in a hurry.
Another advantage of PTE is that the computer-based test focuses more on everyday use of English rather than complex, high-level English.
There are no academic standards for the PTE exam. However, the candidate must be at least 16 years old. If the candidate is between 16 and 17 years of age, there is a requirement for a letter from a parent or guardian.
