Our test has changed: here's what you need to know

Shorter test, less stress

Since November 16, PTE Academic and PTE Academic UKVI tests take just two hours to complete, instead of three hours.

Although the test is shorter, we have kept the test format, question types, and scoring scales just the same, so you can prepare in the same way.

Our shorter test is still accepted by all the same universities and professional bodies – and by the UK, Australia and New Zealand governments for visa and immigration purposes.
