PTE (Pearson Test of English) Academic, an online test of English proficiency for applicants wanting to go abroad, will be accepted by Engineers Australia from 1 November for migration skills evaluation purposes.
PTE Academic is said to be approved by all visa application categories of Australia and will be able to aid employers in that country in hiring Indian engineers.
Vikas Singh, Managing Director, Pearson India, who was happy with PTE Academic’s increasing popularity in India, was quoted by Data Quest as saying that they were happy to announce that PTE Academic would now offer engineers from India a pathway to Australia, as it has been doing for many other Indian professionals. He said that they had witnessed a boom among English test takers for PTE Academic because it is an entirely online testing system, which is, therefore, very convenient and sends results faster.
Singh said that as Australia is one of the desired destinations for skilled migration by IT professionals, engineers, accountants and nurses, the Engineers Australia’s acceptance of PTE Academic as a language test for engineers is a major recognition of achievement.
PTE Academic is said to ensure the reliability of scores and has the fastest score reporting in the industry with exam takers getting their results usually within five business days. PTE Academic has 16 test centres across India.
