PTE Test Dates

PTE Academic can be taken any time in a given year and it is administered by Pearson PLC Group. PTE Academic is an internationally-recognized English language test accepted by popular and leading foreign universities such as the University of Massachusetts, Boston; the University of Illinois, Chicago; Arizona State University, University of Dayton, to name a few. The test can be scheduled up to 24 hours in advance, offering enough flexibility to international students to attempt the test according to their convenience. Students, however, are advised to book the test approximately one month before the exam to avoid the last-minute rush.

While selecting the PTE Academic exam date and time, one should double-check the format and time zone to prevent confusion. Furthermore, both the time format and time zone can be adjusted to one’s personal preference. One must make sure to do that before registering for the test or else it may lead to confusion.

Although there is no fixed test date for the PTE Academic, it is recommended that a student planning to study abroad should take the test at least two to three days before the university stops inviting applications. This enables students to prepare well for the test and then on other parts of a university application. Students are advised to keep track of all the dates so that they do not miss the examination.

Which is the Best Month to Take the PTE Exam 2022?

FAQs on PTE Academic 2022 Test Dates

What is the ideal PTE test date?

As the above information indicates, there is no such thing as a good/bad or better/worst PTE test date. Candidates must schedule their PTE Academic test slot whenever they have completed their exam preparation. As per experts, the ideal time to take your first PTE test is approximately two months before your university's admission deadline.

Is the availability of PTE test dates the same for both PTE Academic and PTE General?

No, the availability of PTE test dates is not the same for both PTE Academic and PTE General. In addition to the many differences between the two tests, the test dates carry a disparity of difference. PTE Academic is administered on nearly 360 days each year, whereas PTE General is administered only three times a year, one in May, one in June, and the last one in December.

For how many years are the PTE exam scores valid from the PTE exam date?

The PTE exam scores are valid for two years from the PTE exam date and the day on which the test scores are declared for academic purposes, and three years for immigration purposes that can eventually lead to permanent residency. For the accurate seal of declaration, the authenticity can be checked on the score report provided by Pearson.

How many days after the PTE exam dates can I expect my PTE results?

You can expect your PTE results within five business days after your PTE exam date. The PTE academic results are released by Pearson VUE. When your results are available, Pearson will send you an email with some detail-mentioned instructions on how to access your score through your Pearson web account.

Can I cancel my scheduled PTE exam date and get a full refund?

Yes, you can cancel your scheduled PTE exam date and get a full refund only if you cancel up to 14 full calendar days prior to your exam date. If you cancel your test less than 14 calendar days before the test day, but at least 7 complete calendar days before the test date, you will receive a 50% refund. If you cancel the exam less than 7 calendar days before the exam, you will not receive a refund.

Can I book the PTE exam date before 24 hours?

Yes, you can book the PTE exam date before or within 24 hours of the next test. PTE Academic bookings are available with last-minute availability. This may, however, vary from one location to another and also depends on the availability of seats in your test centre. Please visit the official website to check for availability.

Can I postpone my PTE exam date?

Yes, you can postpone your PTE exam date if you cannot attend the PTE exam due to illness or any family emergency. Pearson may agree to a one-time, no-cost rescheduling. To do so, fill out the 'emergency reschedule' form and submit any supporting proof within 14 calendar days of your scheduled test date.

How many times is the PTE exam conducted in a year?

The PTE exam is conducted several times a year, with the last-minute availability of appointments. It happens throughout the year. You can book your test anytime, anywhere provided there is the availability of test dates in your nearest centre. You can even book a test after your results are declared.

What items should I carry on the PTE test date?

The only thing that you need to carry on the PTE test date is an acceptable ID. In most cases, the accepted ID proof is the passport. It is a secured examination so it is very important for you to show a proper identity card for entering the examination hall.

Are all PTE Academic sections conducted on the same day?

Yes, all the PTE Academic sections are conducted on the same day, unlike IELTS whose speaking section is conducted on a separate date. This saves a lot of time for the students who are appearing for the test. One can be relieved of the tension of appearing for the test again on some other day.

Can I change my PTE test date before taking the scheduled test?

Yes, you can change your PTE test date before taking the scheduled test. You can do it by you logging into your ‘myPTE’ account and selecting the reschedule option. No additional fee will be charged if you reschedule the test before 14 days. But below that, you will be charged 50% of the booking fees and if you reschedule 7 days prior to the examination then 100% of the booking fee will be charged.

Can I take the PTE exam more than once a year?

Yes, the PTE exam can be taken more than once a year. It can be taken as many times as the candidate wants. However, they must wait until they have received the scores for the previous test. After that, they can book the test again if they are not satisfied with the results.

When should I ideally book a PTE exam date?

Ideally, a candidate should book a PTE exam date at least two to three months before the university application deadline. This will ensure that you are not in a hurry. Besides, one should opt for the test only when they are confident with the preparation. This will help them in scoring the cut-off determined by universities.

How to select PTE test dates?

You can select PTE test dates by visiting the official website of PTE Academic, clicking on ‘Book a Test’ and writing the name of the city where you want to take the test. A list of available test centres along with the available test dates will pop up.

When are the PTE exam dates in India?

The PTE exam dates in India are distributed evenly across a given year. Please find an appointment by visiting the official website of Pearson. You can choose the PTE test dates according to your convenience when you feel you are fully prepared for the test. The exam can be scheduled 24 hours in advance and it's flexible for the applicants.
