Posted on September 4, 2018
The intake of applications of most overseas Universities starts in the month of September. In light of the same, Pearson Middle East urges the high school students keen on pursuing studies overseas to take the Pearson Academic test.
Students whose first language is not English are required to prove their language proficiency while applying overseas for studies. Pearson Academic is an efficient and quick way for students to show their proficiency in English. It takes around 3 hours to take the test and it can be booked 24 hours in advance.
PTE Academic is a test trusted by leading Universities worldwide like Yale, INSEAD and Harvard Business School, as per Trade Arabia. It is also accepted for Immigration Visas by the governments of New Zealand and Australia.
The PTE Academic is a computer-based English language test and the scoring is done using the Pearson automated scoring technology. This ensures that all those who take the test are scored objectively, consistently and most important of all, accurately. This is irrespective of the test location.
All Pearson test centers are equipped with the latest digital technology like digital signatures and palm scanning. Each test center is monitored by CCTV cameras. Randomized test formats and secure paperless results are also part of the digital technology used by Pearson.
The 3-hour PTE Test is divided into 3 sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing (which are done together). You will have to answer different question formats from comprehension to essay writing to multiple choice questions. The accents used in the test are varied from American and British to non-natives.
A number of top Universities within the UAE are also accepting the PTE Academic Test. Notable ones are the Middlesex University in Dubai, United Arab Emirates University and the University of Wollongong.
The PTE Academic test sessions are run in over 50 countries of the world. The UAE has 3 test centers of PTE Academic, two in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi.
