This means that all migrant applicants must complete and pass one of the 6 English Language test systems currently accepted by the Australian immigration and skills assessing authorities.
Although I did not have to do the test myself, friends and family did.
My daughter wrote the IELTS test (you can read about her experience and insights here) and my nephew recently passed the Pearson PTE test .
The difference between the IELTS and Pearson PTE :
The IELTS test is done in a written pencil and paper format, with a person interviewing you for the spoken part.
The Pearson PTE is completely computerised, i.e. you sit at a computer station with a headset/microphone and away you go.
You must be able to type quite quickly!
If English is not your home language or you are struggling to pass or improve your test score the, then consider doing an Express IELTS online coarse.
