Pearson increases PTE Academic testing sessions worldwide
Pearson announced an increase in testing sessions this summer for their English language test, PTE Academic, so that international students can fulfill language requirements for higher education opportunities and student visas. PTE Academic is approved by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) and the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for student visas, as well as institutions worldwide.

A computer-based English language test, PTE Academic has revolutionised the world of language testing. Its rapid turnaround means that students receive their results typically within five business days while only having to book 48 hours before a testing session. To support demand, Pearson has increased the availability of testing sessions worldwide making available thousands of test sessions across key markets such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, UK, China and Malaysia.

In addition, Pearson offers an on-demand test request service for institutions and international advisors to help satisfy local demand for the test. The PTE Academic testing session in Delhi will be held on July 23 and 30.
