PTE Academic Voucher
Looking to save some money on PTE Academic Exam vouchers? Here is everything you need to know
A lot of PTE Academic test takers have been able to save $30 on their test fee with AECC Global since we were official PTE Academic voucher resellers for Pearson in Australia. A few other resellers also started selling the vouchers later.
However, towards the end of 2017, the voucher reseller program was suspended in Australia and hence you will find that we (and other resellers) are currently not selling any vouchers. It is unclear at this point of time, if the discounts will be reinstated.
We continue to provide Education and Migration services in Australia to international students and would be happy to guide you if you need help. Simply click here and submit your enquiry.
Here are some of the most common questions that test takers have about the PTE Academic Exam:
- Do I need computer skills to take the test?
You do not need any special computer skills. We recommend taking one of our practice tests to get used to moving through tasks. You can also watch the tutorial on our website. PTE Academic is taken using a QWERTY keyboard, where the letters on the top line spell out ‘QWERTY’. IF you are not used to this type of keyboard, it may help to practice with one before you take the test.
- Will I be penalised in speaking tasks for not having an accent from a native English speaking country?
No. PTE Academic has been designed to recognise speech from non-native speakers of English representing over 100 different native languages.
- How many times can I take the test?
You can take PTE Academic as many times as you like. You must wait to receive your scores before you can book your next test.
- Do I have to take PTE Academic in my home country?
No. You can take it at any PTE test center around the world. Make sure you check what type of ID you have to use. Pg. 10 of the Test Taker Handbook provides advice on acceptable form of ID. If you are outside your home country, you will probably be asked to show your passport at the test center. Please note that the voucher purchased from our website will only work in Australia.
- Can I take notes during the test?
Yes. We will give you an erasable noteboard booklet (about 5 sheets of A4 paper). If you run out of space, you can ask for another booklet. You are not allowed to make notes until the test has started.
- Can I correct my answers during the test?
You can correct multiple-choice responses (click again to deselect your answer) and typed responses (use the cut, copy and paste options) However, you must correct mistakes before moving on to the next item. You cannot re-record any spoken responses.
The microphone will switch off automatically if you are silent for more than 3 seconds during an answer.
