At each stage, the result indicates a learner’s score on the Global Scale of English – highlighting strengths and which GSE Learning Objectives need further work.

Another option is PTE Academic, an English test to prove language proficiency that learners can take to study abroad or for an immigration visa. Results are aligned to both the and the Global Scale of English and CEFR. The test is accepted by thousands of institutions in the UK, Australia, USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Ireland, including Harvard, Yale and INSEAD; and approved by the Australian Government for visa applications.
