PTE can be taken both at home and at a test centre. If you wish to take the test at a centre, you must complete the additional steps of choosing your nearest PTE exam centre and booking a slot. 

 

The PTE exam consists of various types of tests designed for different purposes. PTE academic is the right exam if you use the scores to apply to universities. On the other hand, PTE General is a good fit for non-academic purposes.
