As the world becomes increasingly unified, the demand for higher education abroad has soared massively. For study-abroad aspirants belonging to non-native English-speaking countries, proving language proficiency through tests like the Pearson Test of English (PTE) has become a key step in the application process. Accepted and trusted by 3500+ institutions worldwide, PTE offers a reliable assessment of English language proficiency for individuals planning to study, live or work abroad. 

In this article, we will take you through the specifics of scheduling a PTE test in 2024, guiding you through the registration process and providing essential insights to help you ace this computer-based test. So, without any further ado, let’s get started. 

PTE Test Overview at a Glance 

The Pearson Test of English (PTE) offers three main types of tests: PTE Academic, PTE Core and PTE SELT Tests for UK Visas and Immigration.

PTE Academic is primarily aimed at non-native English speakers seeking admission to universities and colleges where English is the medium of instruction. On the other hand, PTE Core assesses proficiency in English for individuals seeking employment or migration opportunities in Canada and other leading destinations. While the PTE UK Visa Tests is for test takers who want to work, migrate, and settle in the UK. 

PTE Test Fees

Before understanding the registration process, it is essential to understand the associated fees for the PTE test. 

  1. Test Fees: The cost of taking the PTE Academic test varies depending on the location. At present, the cost of all three test types is INR 17000.
  2. Rescheduling of Test Fees: In case you need to reschedule your test date, PTE imposes a rescheduling fee. If you reschedule 14 days before the test date, then you get back 50% of your test fee. 
  3. Cancellation of Test Fees: If you decide to cancel your test booking, a cancellation fee will be applicable. Like rescheduling fees, if you cancel your registration 14 days prior to the test date then you get a 100% refund of the fees paid. However, if your test is within 14 days of the date of cancellation then you will get a 50% refund.
