IELTS and PTE

IELTS and PTE Test Prep

If you are thinking about studying in Australia, you need to meet English language requirements to get a student visa.

Australian education institutions accept IELTS and PTE scores as evidence of high English language ability:

  • The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) tests your skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking.
  • The PTE Academic English language test (PTE-A) is a computer-based test of your English language skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking. The test is usually three hours long and results can take five working days. Unlike IELTS, the PTE-A often tests two skills together, like listening and reading.

At Manipal Overseas Careers, we provide coaching to help you prepare for the PTE and IELTS tests.

We tailor our classes to your skill level and needs, so you get the most out of each class. We also offer a flexible timetable so you can join us for classes around your work or studies.

Contact us to ask us any questions and enrol in one of our PTE and IELTS coaching classes.

The IELTS is graded on a scale of 1 to 9, while the PTE is scored on a scale from 10 to 90.

Most universities have their own acceptance scores but this is generally the benchmark for various university programs:

  • PTE – overall 45; no less than 36

Bachelor:

  • IELTS – overall band score of 6.0; no less than 5.5
  • PTE – overall 50; no less than 45

Graduate diploma:

  • PTE – overall 6.5; no less than 50

Masters:

  • PTE – overall 6.5; no less than 50

Exemption from English language testing

You don’t need to provide evidence of your English language skill to apply for a student visa for Australia if you:

  • Have completed at least 5 years of study in Australia
  • Have successfully completed the Senior Secondary Certificate of Education or study at Certificate IV level or higher in Australia within two years of applying for a student visa
  • Are enrolled full time in a principal course (including secondary exchange programs), postgraduate research or standalone ELICOS program
  • Are a Foreign Affairs or Defence-sponsored student.

Otherwise, you need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency.
