PTE Young Learners is not a test of grammar and vocabulary knowledge, it tests a young learner’s ability to use structures and functions in realistic contexts and, later on in the series, tests their ability to use language to carry out specific communicative tasks, with an emphasis on real-life scenarios rather than on knowledge of specific language items and vocabulary. The tests follow the adventures of the Brown family across all test levels.

PTE Young Learners papers are marked by Pearson’s qualified examiners.

Using an online marking system (e-Pen) and a web-based test center service system, Pearson provides fast and helpful feedback on individual performance of students in the tests.

The Speaking test is assessed by qualified local oral examiners and monitored by Pearson.

The grades awarded for the test are Distinction, Merit or Pass. If test takers do not achieve a Pass grade, they receive a Certificate of Attendance.
