WHAT TO EXPECT ON TEST DAY
Taking your PTE Academic test doesn’t need to be scary. PTE Academic is taken at a secure test centre, where you will need to show your ID, check in with the test administrator, and sit your test in a secure computer room.
When you arrive at the Pearson test centre, the test administrator will request copies of your ID, ask for a digital photograph and signature, scan your palm, assign you a locker to check-in your belongings, and ensure you are ready for your test.
DURING THE TEST
Most PTE Academic test centres have around 10 seats. You will be sitting in a private booth with other test takers around you. You may be able to hear your neighbours speak as they take their test, but you will be responding to slightly different questions.
- Arrive at least 30 minutes before your test, to check in and pass security.
- Don’t forget to bring acceptable ID, usually a passport.
