Academic-Pearson test of English

I realise that the questions and answers cannot be discussed for PTE, but has anyone else sat this test and ielts? Any thoughts, opinions and feedback.

I have written this computer based test and found it much easier than ielts -it was shorter at about 2.5 hours including speaking. Sadly I missed 2 questions as someone scraped a chair and I did not recover in time and missed another question.

One good thing about the test is that there are no handwriting issues - everthing is typed or spoken. Also each person does a different test, so no point discussing the questions. The writing task seems shorter than ielts. But the very best thing is I had my results the next day - so no waiting around for 13 days :D

Would love to read your comments or take the poll.

Hello Cassie,

I do agree with you but speaking seems a little bit difficult for me because of my L1 interference. writing was the combination of several questions, hence it is easier to score in PTE than in IELTS.

I suppose people who are struggling in only writing part with sound speaking skills can easily score a very score in PTE.

Yes, but I don't think it is accepted for everyone's endeavors like Ielts is...I mean some professions wouldn't accept Pearson test instead of Ielts...that's the sad part

yeah you are right, most of the universities of Canada are not accepting PTE score.
