We discussed about TOEFL vs IELTS vs PTEA a few days back.

There were some questions about PTE Academic‘s website and test registration. PTEA is delivered through Pearson’s global network of secure testing centers.

During the launch period, PTE Academic will be made available in a minimum of 20 territories with the number of centers offering the test continuing to grow over the next year.

A PTE Academic test costs $160 USD in India.

  1. HI there…What are the date of test in tour India Pearson’s test centers?

    1. Hi, havent heard of TOEFL being accepted as a teaching equivalent test. Would be easy then. I would have thought that the TOEFL, IELTS and PTEA (?) are academic tests intended for institutions to assess a candidates Englis proficiency. Something like the CELTA would be more appropriate as a teaching qualification.

      1. They also said there will be many more than the five test centers mentioned here by the end of the year.

        1. Wonderful, thanks for sharing the information. Keep us posted about new info you find about PTEA.
