  PTE General is designed to reward positive achievement in English language learning. The test is intended for learners of English who are speakers of other languages (ESOL).

 PTE General integrates all four skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) and focuses on assessing the ability of communicating in English, rather than test-taking skills.

  Please note that both the Written and Spoken parts need to be attempted to achieve a passing grade.

 The PTE General test is not recognised for immigration purposes.
