PTE Exam Fees FAQs

Do I need to pay PTE fees every time I appear for the test?

Yes. Candidates should be aware that the PTE registration fee is valid for a single PTE test. Candidates who are looking to appear for a second PTE Academic test would be required to register for the PTE test again and also pay the required PTE exam fees. Hence, candidates are always advised to book their PTE exam slot only after having prepared for the PTE Academic test.

Is there a PTE test fee concession?

What is PTE Score Validity?

When can I appear for the PTE test again?

Often, candidates are unable to get their desired PTE scores and look to re-appear for the PTE test again.

Hence, there is no cap on the number of PTE exam attempts. Only a window period of 5 days must be maintained between two PTE test registrations. Candidates would also be required to pay a second PTE exam fee when registering for the PTE exam. 

What is a Good PTE Score?

A  lot of times, candidates are left wondering about a good PTE score. PTE Academic test takers should be aware that every university would have a required PTE score and candidates are expected to achieve the same or a higher value to be eligible for admission to the university.

Having a good PTE score not only increases your chances of admission to the university but also makes you a frontrunner for any scholarships the university may provide.
