Learn how PTE Academic uses AI to mark an English test

Artificial intelligence

AI scoring means that it’s not simply a single human assessing your English language skills, but a very clever algorithm that mimics how human markers would score, based on many, many responses.

Unbiased scoring

When you take the PTE Academic test, what you say is graded by AI against thousands of previous responses. What this means is that you’re graded only on what you say, not your accent or anything else.

Unlimited acceptance for study & migration applications

PTE Academic is accepted for study applications by thousands of academic programs around the world. It is also approved for all Australian and New Zealand student visa and migration applications.

Flexible testing & fast results

Thanks to the use of market leading technology, PTE Academic offers all test takers incredible flexibility. Test taker results are typically delivered in just 5 business days and furthermore, PTE Academic offers global testing in more than 250 test centers in over 50 countries.
