Yes, PTE has been considered valid proof of English proficiency for those who have wanted to study in Malaysia since 2016. 

If you don’t have the required PTE score, you will have to enroll in an additional program for 12 months to pass the English test. So, it’s recommended to sit a PTE exam beforehand to save time.

The good news is you can take the test either in your home country or in Malaysia. PTE is recommended for:

  • Malaysian students who want to study or work in other countries.
  • International students who want to study in Malaysia.

However, you don’t have to provide the PTE result if:

  • You come from an English-speaking country.
  • You have gained a qualification in an education institution where English is used to teach.
  • You have finished your education in Malaysia but want to pursue higher education.
