PTE Academic assesses listening, reading, speaking and writing all via computer in a single 3 hour test session.
To complete a PTE Academic test, you will need to attend a secure Pearson test Centre. You will use a computer and headset to listen to, read and respond to questions.
During the three-hour test session there will be four main parts to the test: speaking, writing, listening and reading. There are twenty different question formats, ranging from multiple choice through to essay writing and interpreting information.
PTE Academic assesses real-life, academic content, so you will hear excerpts from lectures and view graphs and charts. You will hear a range of accents in the test, from British and American to non-native speakers, so you will be exposed to the type of accents you will encounter in everyday life.
The PTE result is valid for 2 years only. The result will be declared in 24hrs after the exam given. In PTE all the four modules are conducted on the same day i.e. the time will of 3hrs+10 min.
