GMAC collaborates with Pearson on new test of English
October 15, 2009
Pearson, in collaboration with the Graduate Management Admission Council, will launch the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) on October 26, 2009.
This new English language exam is designed to more accurately measure the English language skills of students than existing exams. The computer-based test includes speaking and voice recording capabilities; score reports sent to schools will include a 30 second audio clip of the test taker's speech.
Two years in development, the PTE-Academic will be used by universities, higher education institutions, government departments and other organizations requiring English proficiency. More than 770 schools and programs worldwide have already indicated interest in recognizing the new test.
