Pearson announced today that it will work in partnership with JJL Overseas Education Consulting & Service Company to promote PTE Academic, its secure English language test, across China. Pearson and JJL will join forces to provide fast and reliable testing for thousands of Chinese students preparing for study to achieve their higher education goals.
As the provider of one of the fastest growing English language tests in the world, Pearson is developing this collaboration with JJL to ensure that all Chinese students have access to a globally-accepted English language test where and when they need it. Pearson has provided JJL with access to an on-demand testing service which caters for requests for additional testing sessions so that their students can take the test even when advertised testing sessions are full.
PTE Academic has gained a reputation for being the most convenient test on the market as students complete all components of the test within three hours and typically receive their results within five business days. From registration to score reporting, many students have completed the entire testing process and received their test scores within just seven days.
Emma Stubbs, Senior Vice President of Language Testing, Pearson, said: “We offer an English language test that is fast, reliable and widely recognized, meeting all the needs of Chinese students. As the leading student consultancy in China, JJL is the perfect partner for Pearson. With mutual aims to develop national education and with international reach, both brands are perfectly placed to position PTE Academic as the number one test for Chinese students wishing to study abroad.”
