Alat untuk mengukur kemampuan Bahasa Inggris selain TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC; kini ada PTE. Di Indonesia, PTE mulai dilaunched pada 11 Juli 2017, di IALF Jakarta. PTE adalah computer based test tapi bukan online test, jadi tidak bergantung kepada jaringan internet.

Seperti IELTS dan TOEFL iBT, PTE juga diterima di banyak negara berbahasa Inggris baik untuk kuliah maupun untuk study, kerja atau migrasi (visa Australia). Sejak launching pertama pada tahun 2009, kini sudah ada 50 negera dan 500 institusi bisa menerima PTE, di antaranya USA, UK, Australia, Kanada dan New Zealand.

How is the test scored?

All items in PTE Academic are machine scored using PTE Academic’s automated scoring system. Scores for some item types are based on correctness alone, while others are based on correctness, formal aspects and the quality of the response. Formal aspects refer to the form of the response: for example, whether it is over or under the word limit for a particular item type. The quality of the response is represented in the enabling skills. For example, in the item type Re-tell lecture the response is scored on skills such as oral fluency and pronunciation.

In a PTE test preparation, having an experienced tutor with a unique teaching approach matters much to guarantee that the effort you make leads to your success of attaining the target score.
