PTE General is accepted around the world by universities, ministries of education and employers as proof of English language proficiency.
The item types in each PTE General test are grouped together around topics referred to as themes. These themes are linked and expanded across levels, allowing students to get familiar with the PTE General test format and have a better understanding of their English proficiency as they progress through every level.
This is important because when communicating in English, students are often required to combine several language skills to perform a task, for example listening to information and writing about what is heard.
