PTE Academic acceptable in Canadian universities now


It’s good news for all the aspiring students who wish to seek education in Canada. Now, the Canadian government has started accepting Pearson Test of English (Academic) as one of the mandatory tests for testing the language proficiency of a student.  PTE was already accepted as an English language proficiency test in countries like UK, US and Australia, but now Canadian universities will also start accepting the same for the admissions happening for the year 2017.

The best part about the PTE Academic is that its results are announced in; time duration of 5 days after a student appears for the test.

The following are the minimum cutoffs accepted for this test for different kinds of courses in Canada:
