Define your WHY

The first and most important step in choosing your English test is defining WHY are you taking it.

This will depend on several factors; primarily, what your reason for migration is and what country you’re migrating to. For instance, the English test you must take to migrate to the UK as a student differs from the one required for a skilled worker moving to Australia.

English tests are the best way to demonstrate your English proficiency for any visa, job or university application. Choosing the right one and preparing properly for it will get you one step closer to that goal.

Once you have defined your WHY, that’s where we come in!

What’s the difference between the tests? 

There are several key differences between the various English language tests. While some of them assess your ability to use English in daily life, others are specifically designed for those migrating for academic or professional purposes. 

Check our YouTube video comparing and contrasting the three most common English language tests – PTE Academic, TOEFL and IELTS.

Differences between the tests include whether your answers are marked by a human or an algorithm (or sometimes both), whether the test is interactive between yourself and an examiner, and how long you have to complete particular tasks.

E2 test prep offers comprehensive courses that go from skill-building to test-specific strategic advice. We work on boosting your confidence so there are no nasty surprises on your test day!  

If you are short on time to sit down and watch the video, don’t fret! We also have a podcast episode on the matter that you can listen to and learn on the go.

Nevertheless, you should always cross-reference your result with official resources, like the student centre of the university you’re planning to study at, the immigration authorities of the country you’re migrating to, or your overseas employer.
