What is PTE?
The PTE or the Pearson Test of English is a computerised test that assesses a student’s English language skills on parameters such as listening, reading, speaking, and writing. The PTE is completely AI based, and is graded by complex algorithms, thereby, completely removing any possibility of human bias in the process of grading.
Some of the best universities across the globe accept PTE Academic scores to assess a student’s English language skills. This includes prestigious institutions and establishments like the Harvard Business School, INSEAD, and Yale.
The governments of New Zealand and Australia also accept this test as valid for Visa assessment.
