PTE tests all four skills: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing. The emphasis is on communicative skills; which is the ability to use the language for practical purposes rather than having an underlying knowledge of grammar or vocabulary.
The PTE Young Learners is most suitable for children around the ages of 8-13. Levels A1 Foundation, 1, 2 and 3 are suitable for test takers aged 14 upwards. Levels 4 and 5 are designed for young people aged 17+.
Scheduled sessions are in February, March, May, June, October, November and December for PTE General and PTE Young Learners.
We encourage schools, language schools and colleges to become registered test centers so that they can enter their own and external test takers for the tests. These tests are then sent to Edexcel for their correction and corresponding assessment.
