PTE Academic is the world’s leading computer-based test of English for study abroad and immigration purposes. It is approved by the Australian Government for all visa applications and accepted by all universities and Educational institutions in Australia and thousands of universities world-wide. The test is for non-native speakers of English who need to demonstrate their level of academic English proficiency. PTE Academic accurately measures the listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills of test takers via computer in a single 3 hour test session. To complete a PTE Academic test, you will need to attend a secure Pearson test center. You will use a computer and headset to listen to, read and respond to questions. During the three-hour test session there will be three main parts to the test: speaking and writing (together), listening and reading. There are twenty different question formats, ranging from multiple choice through to essay writing and interpreting information. PTE Academic assesses real-life, academic content, so you will hear excerpts from lectures and view graphs and charts.
