Gives you the flexibility to choose paper or computer
PTE is only available on computer, whereas with IELTS you can choose whether you want to take your test on paper or computer in many locations across the world. The freedom to choose is important to test takers who are more comfortable using paper and pen to write their answers.
Fairness in testing
Unlike PTE, IELTS follows a test format that is fairer to candidates. Whether it is paper-based IELTS or computer-based IELTS, you are allowed to skip questions and come back to them later so as not to waste time. With PTE, you must answer the question before moving on to the next question.
Fairness in marking
Robots can be very useful on the factory floor, but unlike PTE, we don’t put candidates’ futures in their hands. English experts evaluate our speaking and reading tests against global scoring standards. This ensures fairness for all applicants to give them the best chance of achieving their migration goals.
