If you want to study abroad or immigrate to another country, you need take the Pearson Test of English Academic. PTE Academic is an innovative global academic English language test administered solely online. Non-native English speakers who need to prove their level of academic English competence take an exam that evaluates their abilities in hearing, reading, speaking, and writing.
We also provide the widely-accepted IELTS exam, but for those who prefer a more time-efficient and realistic assessment of their English skills, PTE Academic is an excellent alternative. Students applying for a Tier 4 (student visa) at the UK Border Agency (UKBA) are needed to show proof of English proficiency at the Common European Framework (CEF) level B1 or B2; the test meets this requirement.
When compared to IELTS’s recommended 2 weeks, this exam just takes 3 hours, offers more date flexibility, and typically provides results in under 5 business days.
