PTE Core

The New and Easy Way to Immigrate to Canada

What is PTE Core?

PTE Core is a brand new English language proficiency test that has been announced by Pearson’s group, the world's leading learning company & is going on board in February 2024. It is designed to assess general English skills for everyday situations, rather than academic English skills. It has been approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for all Canadian government economic visa categories including migration, work, or citizenship visas, and is aligned with the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level. It is a fully digital test consisting of four sections: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking, and uses AI to evaluate and score the test taker's English level.
