Which is the Best PTE Test Centre in Melbourne? Why it Does Matter!
All PTE candidates have already known that PTE is a computer-based English test for academic and immigration purpose.
Do you know a good or bad centre may affect your results?
Yes, it does matter. It is unlike an IELTS exam, you speak to the examiner one on one in speaking section. In PTE exam, you may feel very distracted when all candidates start their speaking section at the same time in the same room.
However, it can be very confusing when it comes to picking the right test centres. Let’s compare pros and cons of all test centres in Melbourne.
There are five test centres in Melbourne now. Four are located in Melbourne CBD, and only Melbourne Polytechnic is located in northern suburb in Melbourne

Pearson Professional Centers-Melbourne
Level 14, 300 La Trobe St，Melbourne VIC 3000
Pearson has much experience as a professional test centre. The seat arrangement is L-type, which is the least distractions from other candidate.
PLT at Cliftons Melbourne
