PTE Tip #4: Make Sure Your PTE Academic Score Reports Are Authentic

by Strictly English TOEFL Tutors on December 16, 2011

Strictly English has heard reports from PTE Academic that some institutions are accepting PTE Academic score reports that may not be authentic. Programs might be accepting printed or scanned score reports, or score reports that claim to be authenticated by a third part agent or company. Programs may also be checking students’ scores through links provided by the students – links which might be to fake sites which mimic PTE Academic’s actual Score Reporting Website .

Accepting these questionable score reports is serious mistake. PTE Academic uses its secure Score Reporting Website as one of the key ways to ensure the authenticity of its reports. Because paper documents are much more susceptible to fraud, PTE Academic does not issue paper score reports.

PTE Academic has the following suggestions that institutions can take to make sure they are receiving authentic score reports:

• Ensure that your institution has access to the PTE Academic Score Report Website (SRW) by filling in the form here

• Ensure that you only access the SRW via:

• Ensure all staff that require access, have access to the SRW

• Remind students to send you their PTE Academic score report through their Pearson account

• Contact PTE Academic at with any questions or concerns
