Launched in the year 2009, PTE is now accepted in more than 6000 organizations. PTE is a computer-based exam that focuses on a student's real-life English skills to understand how one can manage in academic surroundings. The exam is three hours long and consists of three sections- Speaking & Writing, Reading and Listening.

Students can take the TOEFL test round the year and select from various test centres across major cities. Given the pandemic, ETS has launched a home version of the TOEFL test where students can take the test from the safety of their homes.

Integrated language is used throughout the test and students are made to listen to different accents that they might encounter in educational institutes. The test scores are reported on the GSE standardized, numeric scale from 10 to 90 and PTE test takers can expect their results within 5 working days.
