The Pearson’s test of English has a checkered history, which dates back to 1982, when the University of London’s Examination Board introduced this testing system to assess the English language proficiency of students who sought admits into their university. It was then, the need of the hour to assess the communication skill set of a non-native in order to ensure maximum value, both to the student as well as the University. The PTE testing system was put through the rigors of reformation for a number of years to follow. The end result was a perfect testing system! We call it the Pearson’s Test of English (PTE).
