What is PTE Academic?
The PTE (Pearson Test of English)–Academic is a single-timed, three-hour-long, computer-delivered English language proficiency test. The test assesses a person’s English language ability in the four areas of Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking, in an academic context. Feedback is also provided on enabling skills like grammatical range, lexical/vocabulary resource, task response, pronunciation and oral fluency.
Introduced in 2009, PTE is a relatively new entrant in the language proficiency testing landscape, and the number of candidates appearing for the test is also rising rapidly.
