PTE – Pearson Test of English has been the talk of the town in the recent years. It is an International English exam that is conducted to evaluate the test taker and know and certify his ability to speak, read, listen and write the English language appropriately.

This Exam is not much different from its predecessor IELTS in the real sense of assessment. However there are certain advantages and disadvantages of taking PTE instead of IELTS as a VISA eligibility exam.

Disadvantage:

  • The exam is only valid in Australia, if you are planning to migrate.
  • The PTE score is accepted by universities only in Australia and New Zealand.
  • The exam is yet to be popular.
  • The exam preparation without sufficient materials from the authorised source is difficult.
  • There are very few training centers or trainers available in India for teaching PTE.
  • There are few test centers available in the country.

Advantage:

  • The test dates are available on almost all days of the moths.
  • The test dates can be reserved within a week also.
  • The result is declared in 2 days.
  • The result is published in the website and available/accessible immediately.
  • The result is safe and can be exchanged with universities or VISA processing agents easily and quickly.
Note: If you are planning to migrate to Australia (or) study only in Australia or New Zealand, this is a good choice. PTE is your exam.

If you are not sure about which country you are planning to visit or need tome to decide on that matter, it is safe to take IELTS. This exam qualifies you to fly abroad for many reasons. However, you should discuss with your IELTS training about weather to appear for General IELTS test or Academic IELTS test depending on your type of VISA.


 

 

Should I be good at Grammar to excel in International English Exams.

Casper Academy is a coaching center for IELTS, TOEFL, GRE, PTE, UKVI, Life Skills, OET, Licensure RN / PN Exams  and a training center that offers customised course in Vyttila, Kochi – 682019. Since 2001. We are available throughout the day. Candidates can opt to attend classes at their convenient time of the day.

International English exams such as IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, OET, GRE, UKVI, Life Skills and TEFL all have been designed to test and qualify a persons overall ability to handle the English language at various levels in an English speaking country without much hassle.

By taking these exams one does not only qualifies him(her)self for a VISA to an English speaking country. S(he) also get the proficiency to live in a country where English is spoken as the main language for communication. Any language has to be spoken with the grammar. A common ground of expression is revealed through grammar.

When there are no rules followed a cricketer finds it difficult to play with the team. Because the rules form a common ground to protect the player and ease the learning process for a learner of the game. Similarly, grammar forms a common ground on which a user of the language is able to express himself/herself clearly and the new learner finds it easy to learn the language. Therefore it it necessary to learn the language and its grammar rules immaculately.

However, the question here is weather the International Exams are keen looking at the grammar efficiency of the test taker. Of course, yes! All International Exams although they look at the overall fluency of the test taker in handling the language, while marking the test response with a band score they use grammar also as one of the standard scale to measure and evaluate the candidate.
