PTE Academic Exam Eligibility:

Before you can understand how to book the PTE exam, you need to understand if you are eligible in the first place. Being a language proficiency test for university-level English usage, anyone can take the PTE test if they comply with the following conditions:

  • Age Restriction: A minimum age limit of 16 years; test-takers below 18 years of age need parental consent.
  • Academic Qualification: There is no explicit minimum qualification; however, PTE Academic is primarily for anyone willing to study undergraduate or postgraduate-level courses.
  • Maximum Attempts Restriction: There is no restriction on the maximum number of attempts, but a 5-day gap between two tests is necessary.

    The only identity proof that PTE accepts is a passport. During PTE exam registration, test-takers need to fill in details as mentioned in their passports.
