If you are thinking of taking PTE, the first thing you need to do is Register for PTE. The Registration Process of PTE can be completed online by following a few steps as per the guidelines defined by Pearson VUE.
PTE is conducted throughout the year at various PTE centres in India and other parts of the world. There is no limit to the number of times you can take the PTE. Hence, you can register for PTE as many times as you wish to take the test. However, there must be a gap of at least 5 days between two PTE tests.
The number of students who register for PTE keeps increasing every year as PTE Academic is accepted at over 3,000 universities and colleges in Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, Canada, Ireland, Singapore, Germany, etc. Some of the popular colleges that accept PTE Academic scorecards are Colorado State University, Oxford University, London School of Business, Mcmaster University, University of South Florida, Hofstra University and University of Dayton.
COVID- 19 Response
The number of PTE test-takers in each session at all test centres has been reduced to ensure the health and safety of everyone associated with the test.
Most countries have resumed the PTE Test at the designated centre. However, due to changing requirements, some centres may be suspended at short notice. Thus, before PTE Registration, you must make sure to confirm the availability of the test centre at specific locations.
In case you feel unwell or show any COVID-19 symptoms like fever or breathing problems then you must refrain from taking PTE. Instead, you can reschedule or cancel the PTE and take it later on.
