Arrow Is PTE Academic accepted for skilled worker visa 189 or visa 190 for Australia

Hello Expats,

I am looking to take PTE exam rather than IELTS for Australia, When i was searching for PTE, I cam across and found PTE - A (Academic) in many websites and when i tried to register and schedule an exam its showing as PTE for Academic, I am confused Academic is for those who are applying for higher studies am i right?, my question is

1) Is there any difference between PTE - A and PTE - General?
2) Is PTE A accepted for Visa (189,190 and 489)
3) Can any one share good website links to prepare PTE mocks.

2) Only PTE A is accepted for Australian visas
3) You can purchase mock tests from pearson's website. They also have books for practice tests. Youtube will also be very helpful for practice tests as well as tips and techniques. Follow E2Language on youtube.

Buddy how did you get all 90's in PTE-A L,R,W, and S, what's your daily routine, i am trying to remember vocabulary to build but i am forgetting the same word and meaning in a week itself, is it better practice mock tests and achieve score or is it better to build vocab first.

You could refer the thread mentioned above for info regarding PTE. Dont try to remember hardcore vocabs as it may confuse you.Try to keep it simple n straight and yes keep practising with mock tests.
