The best technique to obtain permanent residency in Australia is always determined by the visa system you wish to apply for. Each immigration program has its own set of eligibility criteria, terms, and selection criteria.

Furthermore, the government determines the levels of migration planning and the number of spaces available under each migration program.

When applying for a PR visa, the Australia Skilled Migration stream should be your first choice because it has the most openings. If you meet the eligibility conditions and score the required points on the Australia points calculator, you will have a higher chance in this stream. Furthermore, the skilled migration stream is a points-based system and the most popular immigration route for obtaining a permanent residency visa.

How are PTE bands calculated?

The Pearson Test of English (PTE), a testing system, is mainly intended to evaluate the English language competency of foreign English speakers who wish to migrate to countries such as the UK, Australia, and New Zealand for permanent residency or higher education.

The PTE band score helps assess your English language proficiency skills suitably. The report provides a total score, which will be considered into two primary categories, sub-categorized into multiple contributors.

· Communicative Skills

  1. Listening
  2. Reading
  3. Writing
  4. Speaking
  5. Enabling Skills
  6. Grammar
  7. Oral fluency
  8. Spelling
  9. Written discourse
  10. Pronunciation and
  11. Vocabulary

The PTE bands are primarily helpful for the individuals willing to migrate to Australia. To get 20 immigration points, you must get an average score of 79.

Calculation of overall PTE test score

Firstly, all the scores from the enabling skills must be added, and then the sum is divided by 6 (the number of the added scores). To calculate the overall PTE score, the average sum from the added numbers of the enabling skills will be the fifth contributing factor with the rest of the four communicative skills. It means that your enabling skills will support increasing your average indirectly. The enabling skills will be able to determine the scores of your communicative skills if they are on the borderline. The overall scores are calculated once the average reaches over 88, which rounds up to 90.
