The first machine-scored English language test

We were the first to pioneer machine-scored English language tests over 10 years ago. Our sophisticated algorithms, based on hundreds of thousands of real test responses, mean that every single one of our tests is marked accurately, consistently, and fairly.

Help your clients prepare

PTE has a wide range of free and paid-for preparation resources to help your clients build their test confidence, no matter what stage they are in their journey or however little time they have to prepare.

Our scored practice tests can also help them identify their score range ahead of the real test, so they know which skills they need to focus on to get the best results.

Buy test and prep vouchers

If you prefer, you can buy test vouchers for your clients, so that they can pay you directly. Test takers then submit their voucher code when making their booking or purchase. Vouchers are discounted, which you can pass on to clients or retain as a margin.

Bulk test vouchers

You can buy packs of test vouchers to offer your clients. This is especially helpful if your test takers cannot book PTE tests using a credit or debit card.

This service is not available in every country.

Prep vouchers

You can support your test takers by buying vouchers or access codes, which they can purchase from you. These are available to bulk buy.

Please contact your local Pearson office or sales representative to make a purchase.
