How is the PTE Academic test scored?

An Artificial intelligence system does the scoring automatically. The AI system is trained based on the results of thousands of sample papers scored by actual examiners, and this practice continues each year.

The AI engine refers to millions of past results and the knowledge of thousands of examiners when scoring a test.

What is a good score?

The definition of a good score can vary based on individual requirements, However, if we divide the score into ranges, a score between 73 to 79 is considered a good Score, 80 to 89 is a very good score and an overall score of 90 is an exceptional score.

In most cases, a score of 79 would satisfy the admission requirements of top universities around the world and immigration requirements for various countries.

Some of the criteria that institutions set for scores:-

  • Admission criteria are based solely on the overall score, without considering the communicative skills scores for admission.
  • Admission criteria are based on a minimum overall score along with a higher minimum score for one of the communicative skills scores as it is considered important for the program.
  • Admission criteria are based on the minimum overall score along with a lower minimum score for one of the communicative skills scores as it is considered less important for the program.
