PTE comparison with IELTS score

PTE and IELTS Concordance score

PTE (Pearson Test of English) is an English language test which helps in assessing and validating the English language requirement of non-native English speakers. Recently, there has been major change in score concordance in PTE. Some of you have been worried about aspects of the Concordance Report. The report is about how the PTE scores align with IELTS scores. However, According to the sources, there has been no change to the PTE exam or how it is scored. Also there has been no change to Australian, New Zealand or UK visa requirements. “Score concordance is a regular activity undertaken by test providers, and it is important that Pearson re-evaluate and validate our concordance with other major tests." (Published on its website).


What has changed?

Source: PTE

In the mid-range, where the test is typically used for academic admissions purposes, the updated concordant scores have been minimally adjusted. 

At IELTS 7.5 and above, the concordant PTE Academic scores, while in the same range, are at some points higher on the scale. 

At IELTS 6.5 and below the concordant PTE Academic scores, while in the same range, are at some points lower on the scale



Applicants who need 7 bands on IELTS will not be affected much by these changes.
Those who need 8 bands will be heavily affected by it as now they have to achieve PTE score 84 instead of 79. These changes are likely to have an impact on applicants who need PTE 6.5 and PTE 8.0. Applicants who need 6.5 bands and under will benefit the most from these changes.
