Accurate, objective, relevant results
PTE Academic delivers accurate, objective and relevant English test results.
Note: This score alignment is recommended by PTE Academic.
Our automated scoring system is based on complex algorithms that were trained by testing a data sample of over 10,000 students with over 120 native languages.
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.
Global Scale Of English
Our test is scored against the Global Scale of English, giving you an accurate snapshot of test-taker performance on a scale of 10 – 90.
