Ever wonder the difference between these TOEFL and the PTE English tests for university admittance? TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is currently the most common for non- native English speakers. The TOEFL is often a requirement at most colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and other English-speaking countries. In addition, government agencies, licensing bodies, businesses or scholarship programs might also require the TOEFL. Both the TOEFL and PTE are valid for two years

The Pearson Test of English Academic is recognized by thousands of universities worldwide, the most popular being the UK, Australia, the US and Canada. It is administered by the Graduate Management Admission Council, similar to the TOEFL test, the Pearson Test of English (PTE) tests in all four sections: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. The scoring ranges from 10 to 90, and includes your overall score, communicative skills scores and enabling skills scores. The score is based on performance on all items in the test. The test is computer based and takes about three hours to complete; results are available in 5 working days. You may retake the test as many times as you wish to. The main differences from the TOEFL include:

1. Automated speech and writing scoring providing consistent and accurate grading
2. Score reports offering recorded speech samples to admissions offices at universities worldwide
3. Question types including fill in the blanks, match the items, select multiple answer choices in the same question

I am writing this testimonial to Edwise International and especially to my tutor for PTE. I was tensed before giving my PTE exam</a> because I got my passport late and I had to clear the exam in a single attempt. I explained the situation to her. She helped me a lot. Those two sessions were really very crucial for me as I scored 77/90 in PTE with 90/90 in speaking. This score has also helped me in getting a part time job in Australia as well. My tutor was very calm, understanding, I am really thankful to Edwise and for the overall experience with a Coaching Dept.
