PTE Scores 2022

In this section, we are going to cover all the important questions around PTE scores and PTE results for the benefit of the readers. 

When are PTE results declared?

Typically PTE results are declared in five days. However the conducting body of the PTE Academic Exam, Pearson PLC Group is making efforts to bring this down to two days. In 2020, the majority of the PTE results were declared in a record time of 1.2 days, for the sole benefit of the PTE test taker. Candidates can expect their PTE results in two days for the current year.

How to check PTE results?

Candidates can access their PTE scores via their PTE online account which they would have created during the PTE registration process. Candidates would receive an email notifying them about the availability of their PTE scores. After receiving the notification, candidates would be required to log in to their Pearson VUE account (myPTE) and access their scores.

Steps to viewing your PTE Scores

  • Visit 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 PTE Score Validity?

Often candidates are left wondering about the validity of their PTE scores. They should know that their PTE scores are valid for two years from the date of the exam. Once the two years are over, the expired PTE scores would be automatically removed from the test taker's account.

Hello Navjot. Yes PTE Academic and IELTS are both English proficiency tests and serve the same purpose. You are not required to appear for both but for one of the exams (PTE or IELTS) which is ideally accepted by the university and during the visa application process.

Hello Sachin. Student Visa does not really have eligibility. The process to apply for a student visa requires you to apply to a university and get an admit letter before proceeding to apply for the student visa.

Hello Tanya. You don't have to finalize any university or country before booking your PTE test. However, having a particular university in mind will give you a rough idea about the PTE score you would need to achieve to be considered for admission to that university.
