PTE Academic

PTE Academic measures your English ability by testing your level of English through tasks which reflect real-life settings.

The test is 135 minutes long and it is split into timed parts. When the time is up on the section, the test will move on automatically.

There are different types of tasks. Some tasks will test integrated skills (e.g. reading AND speaking). There is no scheduled break. However, candidates can go to the bathroom while the test is running.



PTE Academic results are typically available within five business days of you taking the test. There is no paper version of your scores, they are only released online. You can send your result to as many institutions (universities, government agencies, etc.) as you select.

The test is internationally recognized and is accepted for admissions to thousands of programs. PTE Academic acceptance includes top UK universities, top US universities and government organizations.
