PTE Core for Canada Permanent Residency

PTE Core is the newest addition to the English language test that the Canadian government accepts for permanent residency applications. Expected to go live by the end of 2023, this test can be your surefire way to boost your PR application and secure you a spot in the ever-growing Canadian economy. Unlike PTE academic, PTE core is more oriented towards testing your ability to communicate fluently in real-life situations. Originally PTE Essential, it was renamed PTE Core in May 2023, and it adopts a more general approach emphasising vocational training instead of academic proficiency.

When it comes to acquiring PR in Canada, there are several eligibility requirements. One is your ability to communicate freely without being limited by language barriers. If you are a foreign national from a non-English speaking country planning to build your career in Canada, your proficiency in the native language, i.e., English, would determine your ability to fulfil your responsibilities and work to the best of your potential. That’s why a test like PTE core for Canada PR can influence your entire PR application. So, if you are a foreign national aiming for a PR in Canada, connect with us and make sure your PTE Core score is good enough to boost your application. We are EnglishWise, a team which offers PTE Core practice online and helps you acquire the language proficiency you need to achieve your dream PTE Core score.

PTE Core Test Format

For a better understanding of the test, let’s have a look at the PTE Core test format –

  • PTE core is a computer-based test which you can take at your nearest test centre under the surveillance of an invigilator.
  • PTE core has automated scoring to remove the possibility of human bias and to establish one single marking criteria.
  • PTE core, like its other counterparts (IELTS), tests your language proficiency in four sections, namely,
    • Reading: Evaluates your reading comprehension with tasks like multiple-choice questions, reordering paragraphs, and filling in the blanks in written passages.
    • Writing: Scores you on your ability to write in English, involves tasks like summarising written text and writing essays on given topics.
    • Speaking: Assesses your ability to converse in English via tasks like reading aloud, repeating sentences, describing images, re-telling lectures, and answering short questions.
    • Listening: Tests your listening skills through tasks such as summarising spoken text, multiple-choice questions with single or multiple answers, filling in the blanks while listening, and highlighting the correct summary.
  • The PTE core score ranges between 10-90, with 90 being the highest. You can visit the official Canadian government website for an exact PTE score for Canada Permanent Residency.

PTE Core Pros & Cons


  • No more waiting months to get your scores, as PTE Core provides quick results within two days.
  • As PTE Core uses an automated scoring system, it is completely objective and impartial.
  • You can conveniently sit for the PTE test at your chosen centre as they are located worldwide.
  • PTE Core, like PTE academic, will have frequent yearly test dates. So, you can sit for the exam whenever you want.
  • PT Core is a computer-based test, making it a less intimidating experience for most candidates.
  • PTE Core is a valid test and is ideal for people who wish to work, migrate, or aim to get a PR in Canada.
  • It accounts for a comprehensive evaluation as PTE Core assesses your proficiency in all language skills, including speaking, listening, reading, and writing.


  • Automated scoring can reduce bias, but it might not work well in speaking and writing sections, where you need a little subjectivity to determine the proficiency level.
  • As a new addition, the PTE Core is less widely recognised than other English proficiency tests like TOEFL or IELTS.
  • The speaking section of PTE is also computer-based, so meeting the pronunciation and intonation requirements might be difficult.
  • As PTE is entirely computer-based, technical glitches or microphone problems can negatively impact your test-taking experience.

There are both PTE Core pros & cons, but if you compare, the pros outweigh the cons. The PTE Core test format does bring forth certain challenges, but with the right preparation, you can ace the test. That’s where our team comes into the picture. Our PTE Core online practice sessions will take you through the complexities of the exam and will equip you to tackle all the sections efficiently.

I paid for one month 250 dollars, I had an emergency with my family, I sent and email request my course cancellation,... they refused. I check the prices and for 250 dollar you have 6 months for use the platform, I ask to them because I paid 250 just for one month. I used the platform, I tried to be in class and I was connected with many people and waiting for the teacher more than 15 min. I didn’t get any class with teacher! Any class!! Any feedback …They send me an email and they told me I can access for 6 months to the platform because I paid 250 after one month the close the platform I asked them and they said it was the deal. I wasted money and time and I had an terrible experience and stressful. I could paid this money in a better place o paying my test.Please don’t get agreement with this people!!!Don’t waste your money and time. Awful experience!read more
