When I landed in Melbourne, I was like...how I wished I moved here permanently!

I am sure you must have been abroad. And the moment you have landed in a First world country, you must have sighed 'how clean is everything!' Well let me declare...You are not the only one! Cribbing over certain aspects of our motherland (uncleanliness, corruption, iliteracy, etc) doesn't make us less in love with our own country. But it certainly evokes a desire to shift to a better place for studies and eventually for settling down in life.
 People like my parents were overtly content with their country. That's why they neither thought of migrating nor sending me abroad for higher studies. For them abroad was just for vacations. My Dad being an engineer in a PSU got numerous opportunities to settle abroad for work but he never accepted those offers. Fast forward 10 years since my first exotic trip, I now know the difference. How I wish I could have studied and eventually settled in any of the developed nations. My profession does not have any scope for settling abroad in the near/distant future. So I have to be content with just exotic vacations only. I however have decided that my daughter will go to study abroad. It's not that I don't love my country. I love my motherland to bits. However I want my piece of heart to lead a better life without any pollution. And I think there is no harm in wanting that.
Moving abroad for studying comes with its own set of challenges. In order to get accepted in a university one has to get a good score in the English Language test and that's a mammoth task as we belong to a non English speaking nation. When it comes to English, we Indians rank far better than European or South American nations as we are introduced to this language right from childhood. However when it comes to proving our mettle as an English speaker on an international level, it's quite a challenge. I have seen hundreds of my friends toil for IELTS and TOEFL test. So many of my friends were denied their student Visa as they were unable to get the required score on time. A lot many were denied their PR because of the same reason. I don't want my daughter to face all this. So I have started my homework pretty early and I have discovered an English Language test which is superior to all.

 What is PTE Academic?
The PTE Academic stands for Pearson Test of English Academic which is a computer based language test that helps in getting admission into Foreign universities or for migration. It's the fastest, fairest and the most flexible way to prove one's English language proficiency for immigration or student visa.

Also this test is approved in all the Australian, New Zealand and Irish universities and hundreds of other universities in USA and Canada and 96% of universities in the UK.

Below is a tabular comparison of PTE Academic with other known English tests.


How is PTE Academic structured?


How to interpret the scores?

The test is scored on the Global Scale of English, granular scale of 10 to 90.
Since scoring is fully computerised, it's unbiased and highly accurate. It does not really matter where test takers come from as it's computerised. Palm vein scanning, randomized test forms and data forensics ensure test score validity.

How to book a test?

Booking the test is relatively easy and can be done conveniently by phone or online.

Before booking the test the candidate should be ready to furnish the following details as they appear in their documents if identification. Name, Date of birth, Citizenship, Country and City of birth, Credit or Debit Card details.
Online they can register and create a Pearson account. once their login details are received via email, test takers can schedule a test.
There are numerous centres in India in cities like Global Oppurtunities New Delhi, Global Reach Kolkata, Edwise Consultants Pvt Ltd Mumbai, Chennai, Global Reach Nagpur and many other cities too. All over the world, they have centres in USA, UK, Vietnam, Canada, Turkey, Australia, etc etc.


I guess PTE Academic has made immigration and Student visa approval pretty much a cakewalk process. At least now I know what test my daughter would appear in. It would be #DefinitelyPTE
