Accurate, objective, relevant results
Note: This score alignment is recommended by PTE Academic.
In December 2020, we released some research showing updated concordance between PTE Academic and IELTS Academic. PTE scores and scoring have not changed. View the full report here.
We fed thousands of human marks into our system and now find that the standard error measurement between our system and a human rater is less than between one human rater to another. Hear our experts talk about automated scoring via YouTube or view our whitepaper.
