How many years is PTE valid?
The validity of a PTE (Pearson Test of English) score depends on the institution or organization to which you are submitting your scores. PTE scores themselves do not have a fixed expiration date like some other standardized test scores. However, institutions and agencies may have their own policies regarding how long they will accept PTE scores for various purposes.
In general, PTE scores are considered valid for a period of two years from the date of the test. This means that most universities, colleges, immigration authorities, and other organizations will typically accept PTE scores that are no older than two years at the time of application or submission.
It’s important to check the specific score validity requirements of the institution or organization you plan to apply to, as their policies may vary. Always verify the score validity period with the relevant authorities to ensure that your PTE scores are still acceptable when you submit your application. If your scores are older than the institution’s stated validity period, you may need to retake the PTE test to meet their requirements.
