New Pearson Test of English Language Ability Sees Rapid Growth

Hundreds of world-class colleges and universities around the world are now recognizing Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic), a new international computer-based English language test endorsed by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).

In less than a year since the state-of-the art computer-based English language test was first announced, more than 300 programs have chosen PTE Academic as an accurate measure of the English language proficiency of candidates for admission who are non-native English speakers.

London Business School, Cornell’s Johnson School, Georgetown McDonough, USC Marshall and HEC Paris are just some of the top business schools that recognize PTE Academic from candidates for admission.

“As the academic community has grown increasingly more global, colleges and universities have a greater need than ever before for an innovative, accurate measure of the English languages abilities of the non-native English speaking candidates that they are considering for admission,” said Mark Anderson, President, Pearson Language Tests.

“We are proud of the widespread acceptance of PTE Academic and excited to launch the test internationally from October 2009.”
