If you are unhappy with your PTE Academic score, you may request a rescore. Before doing this, you should take the following into consideration:

  • PTE Academic is a computer scored test; therefore, it is unlikely that your overall scores will change.
  • Only spoken responses and open-ended written responses are rescored.
  • In the unlikely event that your score changes, it may go up or down.
  • If your score changes, it will replace your previous score and your original score report will be reissued to reflect the new score.

You may only request a rescore of your most recent PTE Academic test. You can not request a rescore if you have already either scheduled another test or sent your score to an institution.

To order a rescore, you must contact Pearson Customer Service within 14 calendar days of your score report being made available to you.

The fee for rescores is available from the Customer Service team.

In the unlikely event that either your overall, communicative or enabling skills scores change, the rescore fee will be fully refunded.
