There are many things that distinguish PTE from its close competitors – IELTS and TOEFL. The full form of PTE is Pearson Test of English. The first and foremost distinguishing aspect of the same is the scoring pattern and the results. As the tests are completely computerized, the results are declared much quicker, in 5 days. This makes it aptly suited for students who are in a bit of a rush.
The three-hour long computer-based test focuses on day to day English rather than high-level English language and tests a student on his/her ability to effectively understand the language as spoken daily. The multi-level grading system ensures a better understanding of the student’s proficiency in the English language.
