About PTE Academic Eligibility 2020

There are no specific eligibility criteria for PTE Academic prescribed by Pearson VUE, the conducting body of the test. However, the test takers or the applicants will be required to provide with information with regard to their age, grades, parental consent if the candidate is below 18 years of age. 

A PTE eligibility criterion is different from the eligibility criterion of an educational institution in which you are hoping to seek admission. Only clearing PTE will not fetch you admission there, so carefully read the institution’s admission eligibility criteria separately.

Pearson VUE has reduced the availability of testing for Indian candidates and also restricted the number of test-takers in each session in order to comply with official requirements and in the interests of protecting test takers and test centre administrators.
