PTE General is fast, flexible, computer-based academic English language test aimed at non-native English speakers wanting to study abroad. The test consists of two parts: a written paper and a spoken test.

It tests Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. There are six levels which are mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. PTE General is a multi-level test, like IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC.

Questions often test 2 skills together, such as listening and reading or reading and speaking. The whole test is done in a single session, lasting 3 hours and is taken sitting at a computer in a secure test environment. The speaking part of the exam is done at the computer. Your voice is recorded and sent for marking. PTE General are theme-based exams designed to test how well a learner can communicate in authentic and realistic situations. The test uses real-life material and tasks, such as writing messages, understanding talks and newspaper articles, or participating in conversation.
