For the advantage of the readers, we will cover all of the crucial questions around PTE scores and PTE outcomes in this part.

When will the PTE results be released?

PTE results are usually available in five days. The Pearson PLC Group, which administers the PTE Academic Exam, is working to reduce this time to two days. In 2020, the majority of PTE results were announced in a record-breaking time of 1.2 days, only for the benefit of PTE test takers. Candidates can receive their PTE results for the current year in two days.

How do I find out what my PTE scores are?

Applicants can get their PTE results by logging into their PTE online account, which they created during the application process. Candidates will be notified through email that their PTE scores are now accessible. After getting the notice, applicants must log in to their Pearson VUE account (myPTE) and access their scores.

Steps to viewing your PTE Scores

  • Go to the official PTE website
  • Log in to your PTE Account (myPTE)
  • Click on “Activity” and find the appointment connected with your PTE score

What is the validity of a PTE score?

Candidate's should be aware that their PTE results are valid for two years after the exam date. Once the PTE results are expired they would be automatically withdrawn from the test taker's account after two years.

What Does a Good PTE Score Look Like?

PTE Academic test takers should be know that every university has a minimum PTE score, and candidates are expected to obtain good score to be considered for admission. A good PTE score not only improves your prospects of admission to the university but also gives you the chance for any scholarships offered by the university.

What is the typical PTE score?

As previously stated, every university will have a minimum PTE score, and candidates will be expected to obtain the same or a better value to be considered for admission. Candidates should aim for a higher than average PTE score, as this will not only improve their prospects of admission to the institution but will also put them in the running for any scholarships that the university may provide.

How to Send PTE Scores

We'll explain the overall PTE score reporting in this section, as well as how to deliver PTE score reports to universities.

What is the best way to send a PTE Score Report?

Candidates who want to send their PTE scores can do so using PTE's secure online platform. PTE Academic score reports in paper or PDF format are not accepted by universities. PTE Test takers should be aware that transmitting PTE scores to institutions is a free service with no additional costs. Candidates must, however, follow the processes outlined below.

  • Sending your PTE Score Report: Steps
  • Register for a myPTE account.
  • Select 'View Score Reports from the drop-down menu.
  • Select 'Send Scores' from the drop-down menu.
  • Select university/institution by typing the name of the institution.
  • Choose which course you want to pursue.
  • Review your information, then proceed to the bottom of the page and click 'Next' to confirm.
  • Repeat the process for each institution (you can send your PTE scores to as many institutions as you like for free)

Is there a way to re-score the PTE? 

If a candidate is dissatisfied with their PTE score, they can seek a rescore. The PTE Academic, on the other hand, is a computer-scored test with a very low probability of making an error. Open-ended written comments and spoken responses are the only ones that are restored. 

Candidates can only request a rescore for their most recent PTE Academic Exam; they will not be able to do so if they have previously scheduled another exam or delivered their score to an institution. When a score changes, the new score replaces the old one, and the original score report is updated to reflect the new score.

The following information can be seen on your PTE Score Card:

  • The ID of the candidate who took the test and the code of the score report
  • Overall PTE Score of the Candidate
  • A detailed analysis of each candidate's performance.

Higher PTE Academic scores may potentially entitle you to financial aid from the university.

Q. Is a month enough time to prepare for the PTE?

A. Before scheduling a PTE test session, candidates should prepare for the PTE exam. As a result, students who have taken the PTE Academic before or who are well prepared for the exam can use the one month to revise and take the exam.
