Best PTE / PTE Exam Updates


PTE Academic and TOEFL are two ways for non-native English speakers to prove their language proficiency, but they’ve got their quirks.

First off, the test format: PTE Academic is a computer-based extravaganza that tests you on everything – speaking, listening, reading, and writing. TOEFL, on the other hand, is available in both paper-based and internet-based formats (TOEFL PBT and TOEFL iBT). It still covers the same skills but separates them into sections, which some people find more convenient.

Now, scoring: PTE Academic dishes out scores on a scale from 10 to 90, with 10-point increments. TOEFL, with its iBT version, gives you a score between 0 and 120, divided up into four sections. TOEFL PBT has a different scale, ranging from 310 to 677.

Time to sit through the test: PTE Academic will occupy about 3 hours of your life, plus an optional 10-minute break. TOEFL iBT runs around 3 hours and 10 minutes, break included. TOEFL PBT is shorter, clocking in at roughly 2 hours and 25 minutes.

Where you take the test matters too: PTE Academic happens at Pearson VUE test centers, and they’ve got lots of them. TOEFL iBT also requires a test center visit, while TOEFL PBT is, well, on paper, and offered less often.

How long your scores are good for: PTE Academic and TOEFL scores both last for two years. So, don’t procrastinate too long!

Ultimately, the choice boils down to what suits you best, what your chosen institution accepts, and where you can conveniently take the test. Don’t forget to consider which language skills you’re most confident in because the test format can make a difference in your performance.
