PTE Test update
  • PTE Academic test to shorten from three hours to two hours

  • PTE Academic Online to enable candidates to take test at home


PTE Academic two-hour test

  • From November 16 2021 the duration of PTE Academic will reduce from 3 hours down to 2.

  • There are no changes to the overall format, question types or scoring scale – there will simply be fewer questions – allowing candidates to prepare in the same way.

New PTE Academic online

  • Pearson is also launching PTE Academic Online. Exactly the same test as PTE Academic, we are now offering it as a new online proctored option for people who prefer to sit the test remotely, from the comfort of their own home.

  • Also available to take from November 16, 2021 the online test takes two hours and will follow the same format and scoring system as the new shorter PTE Academic test center exam.

  • It’s important to note that although the online test is identical to PTE Academic, it is not currently valid for visa or migration purposes. We also ask candidates to check that the universities they are applying to accept the online version before booking this test.
