PTE Exam Fees - A Detailed Guide

Moving abroad for higher education or immigration? You will most likely have to appear for the Pearson Test of English (PTE) exam. While the PTE General test is needed for immigration purposes, students moving abroad for higher education have to appear for the PTE Academic test to seek admission in universities. PTE Academic measures students’ English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and evaluates their ability to study and reside in English-speaking countries. Powered by Artificial intelligence, PTE is a computer-based exam designed to eliminate human biases and provide convenient and rapid testing solutions. If you intend to appear for the PTE, you should be aware of the PTE fees, structure and additional charges.
