ABOUT THE TEST

PTE Academic assesses listening, reading, speaking and writing all via computer in a single 3 hour test session.

To complete a PTE Academic test, you will need to attend a secure Pearson test centre. You will use a computer and headset to listen to, read and respond to questions.

During the three-hour test session there will be three main parts to the test: speaking and writing (together), listening and reading. There are twenty different question formats, ranging from multiple choice through to essay writing and interpreting information.

PTE Academic assesses real-life, academic content, so you will hear excerpts from lectures and view graphs and charts. You will hear a range of accents in the test, from British and American to non-native speakers, so you will be exposed to the type of accents you will encounter in everyday life.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON TEST DAY

Taking your PTE Academic test doesn't need to be scary. PTE Academic is taken at a secure test centre, where you will need to show your ID, check in with the test administrator, and sit your test in a secure computer room.

When you arrive at the Pearson test centre, the test administrator will request copies of your ID, ask for a digital photograph and signature, scan your palm, assign you a locker to check-in your belongings, and ensure you are ready for your test.

DURING THE TEST

Most PTE Academic test centers have around 10 seats. You will be sitting in a private booth with other test takers around you. You may be able to hear your neighbors speak as they take their test, but you will be responding to slightly different questions.

DON'T FORGET!

  • Arrive at least 30 minutes before your test, to check in and pass security.
  • Don't forget to bring acceptable ID, usually a passport
