UK national sitting English Test on holiday in USA- acceptable?

Recommended Posts

I need to take my PTEs but I really don't want to pull a sickie from work (I never have and don't want to). I've got a weeks holiday in October and am heading to New York. Would DoHA think it's odd/suspect having someone from the UK, take a test New York, for Australian immigration?

P.S. I'm a teacher so can't book a day off work.

Do the centres offer weekend tests?

 


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

It doesn't really matter where you take it, it is all electronic and the certificates are the same etc.

Have you studied for the PTE? I wouldn't underestimate it. There are English teachers who haven't made the required marks for the exam!

It shouldn't be a problem to take your test in the USA. Mine was done in Canada (even though I'm a dual citizen). There were others taking the test that were not Canadian citizens. The result is electronic and that's the only part immigration really cares about.
