The Pearson Test of English Academic

PTE Academic is a computer-based academic English language test for non-local English speakers needing to think about abroad. It tests Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.

Questions regularly test two aptitudes together. They are Tuning in and Perusing, and Perusing and Talking. The entire test is done in a single session lasting three hours and is taken sitting at a computer in a safe test condition. The talking portion of the test is done on the computer. Your voice is recorded and sent for stamping.

One favorable position of this test is that you get your outcomes rapidly, in around 5 days.

The test fee varies from country to country. However, the PTE Academic test fee in Nepal is $170 and AUD 375.00 in Australia.

PTE Academic offers fast, flexible English testing. Candidates can schedule their test at least twenty-four hours in advance and typically receive their results within five business days. PTE Academic offers flexible testing locations, with test centers in over 200 locations.

PTE Academic is accepted by thousands of academic programs worldwide, including prestigious institutions such as Harvard Business School, INSEAD and Yale University.
