Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, is today announcing two major updates to its industry leading, high stakes English language proficiency exam, PTE Academic, benefitting both test-takers and institutions alike.
PTE Academic two-hour test
From November 16th 2021 the duration of PTE Academic will reduce from three hours down to two. This means an improved experience for candidates with less time spent taking the exam, whilst the accuracy of the test remains the same.
Most importantly, the shorter PTE Academic test is still accepted by the same universities and professional bodies, including more than 3000 academic institutions world-wide, and by the governments of the UK, Australia and New Zealand for visa and immigration purposes.
New PTE Academic online
Pearson is also launching PTE Academic Online. Exactly the same test as PTE Academic, we are now offering it as a new online proctored option for people who prefer to sit the test remotely, from the comfort of their own home.
PTE Academic and PTE Academic Online are delivered through Pearson VUE’s global network of test centres and through its online proctoring solution, OnVUE. With just a simple check-in process, utilizing highly secure ID verification tools, face-matching technology, and a live proctor, candidates can test without leaving the comfort of home. Test-takers must have access to a reliable internet connection, a computer with a webcam and a quiet location to take the test.
