AI testing leads to fair outcomes for learners

We are constantly striving to do better for learners, and AI testing gives everyone equal opportunity to shine.

Reduced human bias

Be confident that your English skills will be judged fairly, using our expertly developed automated scoring system. There is not just one person responsible for your score.

Our AI tailors test preparation activities to individual learners by tracking progress and ability and giving real-time feedback, leading to more effective outcomes.

“PTE is most accurate in terms of evaluation of the test taker as it eliminates any form of bias, since its algorithm came from the feedback of countless evaluators. I would certainly recommend PTE Academic to my colleagues and friends.”
