Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic test will be shorter from 16 November 2021
From 16 November 2021, the PTE Academic testing will have the following changes:
- The three hours test will be two hours.
- The 70-82 questions will be 53-64 questions.
- The shorter version will still test all four language skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) and include the same 20 question type that currently features.
- The overall format, question types, or scoring scale will not change.
Moreover, the shorter PTE Academic test will still be accepted by the same universities, professional bodies, academic institutions, and Australian and New Zealand governments for visa and immigration purposes.
New Online Version of PTE Academic
Pearson is launching a new PTE Academic Online that will be available from 16 November as an additional option if candidates cannot attend a test centre. The test bookings will be available on 25 October 2021.
The online version is not accepted for other visa applications. English tests will still have to be taken in person at the PTE test centre for visa processing purposes.
Moreover, for student visa applicants, PTE Academic Online may be acceptable as per the discretion of the educational institution.
Improved Score Report
The score report will be more organised according to the candidates’ overall and communicative scores for all four language skills. Enabling skills will be removed and be replaced with a separate skills profile from the score report to allow test takers to identify practical ways to enhance their scores.
