PTE scores will remain the same for all visas being applied for now and any changes made to the PTE score requirements for entrance into educational institutions will be widely reported and will not apply retroactively according to the 2020 PTE and IELTS Concordance Report.
The report has caused some confusion as it has recommended some scores be changed based on its research. The research involved collecting score data from candidates who each undertook PTE Academic and IELTS Academic tests within a short time period.
At IELTS 7.5 and above PTE scores will equivocate higher based on the report and at 6.5 scores will be lower.
But don’t panic!
The recommendations of the report will not kick in immediately and if you have lodged a visa application before the report’s recommendations are implemented your visa will still be assessed with the scale as it was at the time of application.
You will have plenty of warning if the requirements change, just keep an eye on the EasyMigrate news section.
