What to expect on test day

PTE Academic is a computer-based English test that offers international students and migrants the fastest, fairest and most flexible way of proving their English proficiency for immigration and student visas.

As an education or migration agent PTE Academic offers you a new and more efficient way of helping your clients achieve their goals.

Why PTE Academic Is Best For Your Clients

PTE Academic is designed to help students and migrants achieve their goals sooner:

Fast

Results typically delivered in five business days.

Flexible

Over 200 locations worldwide with test sessions up to seven days a week, so you can choose a time and place that suits test takers.

Fair

The leading computer based English test, providing highly accurate and consistent scores, free of any potential bias.

Secure

To ensure test score validity all test centers use state-of-the-art digital biometrics incorporating palm-scanning, digital signatures, secure paperless results, randomized test formats and CCTV.

Help Your Clients Prepare

Like any test, test takers should prepare by becoming familiar with the test format and learn how to tackle questions correctly. Pearson offers test takers a range of free and paid resources designed to help maximize their scores online:

Preparation and Test Vouchers

When booking a test or purchasing online preparation materials test takers would normally pay using a credit or debit card. However, they can also purchase a voucher code directly from you (using any payment method you wish). They then enter the voucher code rather than their credit or debit card details.

This allows you to provide an enhanced service to test takers as they don’t need to pay Pearson. As test vouchers are sold at a discount, this discount can be passed on to test takers as an incentive, or retained by an organization as margin.
