About The PTE Test In Pakistan

pte in pakistan

PTE is an English test to measure English language proficiency for Pakistanis who want to study or immigrate to another country. 

It is widely accepted by universities and institutions around the world, notably in Canada, the USA, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. So, Pakistanis with a high PTE score can gain an advantage if they want to move to these countries.

Each PTE Academic exam will cover three major parts: Speaking & Writing, Reading, and finally, Listening. The overall score is reported on the Global Scale of English, ranging from 10 to 90 points.

Fortunately, the required minimum PTE score in most educational institutions in Pakistan is not too high. Some places you can consider are the Institute of Career Development, Zawiya Academy, or the London School of Management and Technology.

PTE Test Centers In Pakistan

Test centers in Pakistan are available in three cities: Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi. These cities have test centers that offer regular test sessions throughout the month. You can book your test online for a date that works best for you, whether in the upcoming days, weeks, or months. 

Multiple test centers make it convenient for people across Pakistan to access the exam. Below are the test centers in each city:

However, it’s important to check the list of expectations and variations to confirm whether these alternatives are acceptable based on your citizenship and testing location within Pakistan.
