What is a Good PTE Academic Cutoff?

The required PTE test score is decided by the university, college or the concerned department. Top universities abroad accept an overall PTE score of more than 75. However, an average score of  65 and above is considered a good score for admission to most colleges abroad.
 
Those appearing in the PTE test for PR with a minimum score of 65 in each section are considered as good score.
