Pearson Test of English General (PTE General) is a six-level general English test.

All levels of PTE General are recognised globally and are accepted by employers and national education authorities in many countries as evidence of a required level of English. The six levels of the test are provided in partnership with Edexcel Limited, the largest UK awarding body for academic and vocational qualifications.

About the Test

Pearson Test of English General (PTE General) is designed to reward positive achievement in English language learning. PTE General integrates all four skills (Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing) and focuses on assessing the ability of communicating in English, rather than test-taking skills. The tasks in the test are a natural continuation of what happens in the classroom, giving test takers the opportunity to perform at their best.

Assessment of Communicative Ability

PTE General is a scenario-based English language test designed to allow students the freedom to express themselves, show what they can do and how well they can use English.

Realistic and familiar tasks

The test uses real-life material and tasks, such as writing messages, understanding talks and newspaper articles, or participating in conversation.

Positive testing experience

Through a variety of tasks that are relevant and authentic the test will help students identify their strengths and track improvement and success.


Features of the PTE General Test

PTE General consists of two parts: a written paper and a spoken test. The written paper tests listening, reading comprehension and writing skills and is marked by external examiners in the UK. The spoken test is assessed by trained local examiners and is sent to the UK for moderation. There are six levels which are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF). All levels in the test are awarded by Edexcel and accredited by Ofqual in the UK. PTE General certificates do not expire. English language learners are encouraged to seek opportunities to practice the language and confirm their progress regularly.
