Default PTE A Expired

Dear All,

I need help. Please understand my case.

I applied for CDR assessment to EA on 19-May-2019 with my PTE-A result which was to be expired on the next day 20-May-2019 with only 1 day expiry left.Last week, I got additional documents request from my EA assessor along with the comment on my PTE-A score report " This result is not yet assigned to Engineers Australia and cannot be verified. Please, refer to PTE for instructions how to assign Engineers Australia to the test report."

When i contacted PTE-A team with live chat, they told me that they can only verify and authorize my score test to EA within 2 years and now my PTE-A has expired . However, i requested them that when i applied for CDR assessment to EA, my PTE-A wasnt expired. Moreover,
i have mentioned in the form while giving PTE-A test that i am giving PTE-A for the country Australia and for skilled immigration purpose. However, PTE-A is telling me now that i didnt check the below mentioned option which i dont remember now and so they cant do anything.

Important note for those applying for a visa to work or study in Australia or New Zealand: By ticking the relevant box you consent to Pearson allocating your score electronically to the Australian Department of Home Affairs (DHA) and/or Immigration New Zealand (INZ) for the purposes of administering the visa application process, including decisions on your visa.
How did you hear about PTE Academic?
Friend or family
Which country are you planning to study, work or settle? If you have not yet decided please select your preferred destination.
Australia
Why are you taking PTE Academic?
Skilled migration / Permanent Residency.


Now PTE-A team is saying that i ask my EA assessor to email PTE-A at their support team with my credentials. My question is..
Would EA assessor contact PTE-A themselves? OR EA assessor would refuse me as it is expired now / How should i request EA assessor that PTE-A team will not authorize or make MY SCORE verify but you have to email them so that u can know that the test report which was nt expired at the time of EA assessment application is valid. Your suggestions are required.
I have to respond before 20th july 2019.

There are two different things. One is that you tick the box while booking your PTE test that says for DHA Immigration Purpose, that result goes to the immigration department not Engineers Australia. EA is a separate independent body ticking that box will not send scores to EA. So irrespective, if you checked it or not, that tick has nothing to do with EA.

Now to your point, since I have not gone through this, I cannot suggest what is the way forward. But logically speaking, what i can suggest is that you describe your complete case in honest manner to CO and attach that Pearson email as well with your reply. May be if CO is kind enough, then he may contact Pearson. But honestly, I believe that is not going to happen btw. Reason is that CO will say that you knew that your PTE is going to expire after 1 day then why did you submit your case with 1 day expiry results.

Well, do update us what happens in your case. That will be learning for everybody.

The lapse is on your part, not PTEA
You should have sent the scores to EA also when you sent the scores to DHA

Anyways, now the only option left for you is to appeal to the CO with the email from PTEA asking him to contact PTEA for the score confirmation
Maybe if you are lucky, the case officer will contact PTEA and the issue will be solved

Else, you may have to explore the possibilities of giving the test again

Cheers

I did the same as you suggested and honestly and in truthful manner i explained my case to CO with PTE email and their response. CO was kind enough and accepted it. I would advise everyone to be honest and 100٪ truthful is the key to PR!
Thanks.

Hi,

I am Jay Joshi from India. I have attempted PTE - A thrice as I want to immigrate to Australia as a skilled immigrant.

I have scored good, but, not good enough. Please see my scores for all attempt results as under,

PTE-A EXAM SCORE
DATE 08-Jan-19 02-May-19 01-Aug-19
ATTEMPT 1 2 3
Listening 85 79 78
Reading 75 76 75
Speaking 90 90 85
Writing 84 75 76
Grammar 82 83 72
Oral Fluency 82 81 79
Pronunciation 89 90 86
Spelling 89 62 89
Vocabulary 86 88 74
Written D 84 90 90
OVERALL 80 80 78

As you can see, in my first attempt, I was only 4 marks short of 79 for Reading. Whereas, in my 2nd attempt my scores fumbled in both listening and writing (probably due to spelling). In 3rd attempt, except Speaking I scored below 79 in each module.

My target is 79 or above in all sections. Especially, in Reading, I have never been able to go above 79, hence, please provide your ideas for reading as well.

Please suggest if anyone have been through the same and improved his/her result.

I request to help me in this matter and suggest the best from your end.

Regards,
Jay
