PTE Academic is an English language proficiency test that assesses the four key skills, schedules the highest number of tests per year in its field and provides test-takers with the quickest access to their score reports. In Turkey, PTE Academic is accepted by ÖSYM as equivalent to YDS. PTE Academic test-takers may wish to submit their scores to universities when applying for a master's or doctoral degree program or exemption from preparatory year courses. Test-takers may also need a PTE Academic test score to apply for overseas educational opportunities and a UK or Australian visa or immigration status.
