EducationUSA is supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the US Department of State. Pearson is working closely with EducationUSA advising centers to promote PTE Academic as another option for international students.
Last week, the New York Times published an online piece about international student admissions. Martin Bennett, EducationUSA Outreach Coordinator, provided an April checklist for juniors in India interested in studying in the US.
Mr. Bennett offered the following advice to juniors: "Now is the time to start preparing for the standardized tests that are required by your top schools. Standardized tests for international students may include the SAT, ACT and tests that evaluate English-language proficiency — the TOEFL, IELTS and the PTE Academic."
