FAQs

Why is the PTE exam cost different among countries?

PTE prices change because of a variety of factors. For example, it is due to differences in currency rates and taxes (some testing locations require a 5-24% tax) in the country where you take the PTE exam.

What payment methods can I use to pay my PTE exam charges?

You can pay your PTE fee via the following methods:

  • Debit cards (only Visa and Master accepted).
  • Credit cards (Visa, Master, American Express, or JCB).
  • A card registered under a different name (for example, a parent’s credit card).
  • Note that PayPal payment is NOT accepted.

Additionally, you can use a PTE voucher code to pay if you have one. It can help you save money and reduce administrative tasks.
