IELTS, Cambridge or PTE?

Are you considering taking the IELTS, Cambridge or PTE exam but still unsure what’s the best option for you? Check this out!

Taking an English proficiency test might be challenging, especially when your visa or migration plan depends on that. In Australia, there are three valid tests for non-English speakers.

Let’s have a look at each one:


✏️ PTE

The PTE tests English proficiency for both academic and migration purposes. The PTE recognises and accepts American, UK, Australian and Canadian spelling.

The test has 20 different question types, ranging from multiple choice through to essay writing. 



The IELTS tests English language skills for study, migration, and work. 

There are two tests available: IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training. 

The test you choose should be based on what you want to do. The Academic test is usually for entry into university. General training is used for migration purposes.

 So before you book your test, it is good to check which one is right for you. 

IELTS gives individual scores across all four sections – Speaking, Writing, Reading & Listening– and an overall score on a scale between 0 and 9.

✏️ Cambridge English

Cambridge English also tests English proficiency for studying at a university. Cambridge English tests British English.

The Cambridge Test offers three English language qualifications:

  • Schools: This is designed for school-age students, so its content may not be appropriate for adults.
  • General and Higher Education: Designed for those interested in further education.
  • Business: which is designed for professionals seeking to work in international workplaces.
