Philippine test takers can sit PTE Core from February 12
PTE Core received approval from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) last year and can now be taken to provide proof of English language proficiency for the purposes of permanent economic immigration to Canada or Canadian citizenship.
The first PTE Core tests can be taken from February 12 onwards including in test centres in Baguio and Makarti, Philippines.
PTE Core is a new addition to the Pearson Test of English portfolio, sharing many of the unique characteristics of PTE Academic. It is a two-hour, computer-based exam taken in a test centre environment that tests four key English language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
With high demand in Canada for professionals in areas such as nursing, engineering and web development, the approval of PTE Core arrives at a good time for test takers and opens new opportunities for Pearson.
PTE Core will be rolled out across Pearson’s existing network, with more than 400 PTE centres in 118 countries.
