2.     Pearsons – English language test validity

Institutions that recognise the PTE Academic English language test, including the Department of Home Affairs, have access to test takers results for a period of 3 years and can verify those results online using the test taker’s registration ID, or , as of 1 September, the test takers Score Report Code.

Currently test takers can only access their results online for a period of 2 years. Pearson is working to extend access so that test takers can access their results for a period of 3 years.

If a test taker took their test more than 2 years ago and cannot provide their registration ID or Score Report Code for their application, the Department can contact PTE Academic’s support team to have the result manually verified.
