Update: 6th August 2020

The days leading up to Test Day are always a little nerve-wracking as you wonder if you have done enough to prepare and you wonder how you will perform on the day. Recently with COVID this has become even more traumatic as you wonder if your PTE test centre will be open, you wonder if you need to wear a mask during your test and even how a mask will affect your test results.

Pearson have put out a lot of information related to these and other questions. 

Check this link for up-to-date information. Some of that information has been copied below based on the information on the Pearson site as at 6 August, 2020. Please ensure that you check the Pearson PTE pages and your test centre to see if the information still applies.

Note: there are two kinds of centres: Pearson Professional Centre (PPC) and Pearson partner centres. The PPCs are run by Pearson and the information they provide is for those sites. Partner centres may run under slightly different guidelines. Your appointment details will tell you which kind of centre you are booked into.
