Partnership enables universities and immigration agencies to verify scores in a one-stop shop with no extra costs or additional steps for students
Pearson, a leading learning company, has announced a partnership with the international student recruitment platform, ApplyBoard, to use its standalone document verification platform ApplyProof.
The new partnership will ensure that students taking the Pearson Test of English (PTE) to study in Canada will have greater transparency and portability of their test results than before. ApplyProof will enable verifiers to access digital PTE results as needed, efficiently, and at no additional cost.
Immigration officials, government agencies, schools and others can require students to provide proof of English language proficiency. The ApplyProof technology affords a secure and decentralized solution to the challenge of verification. These stakeholders will be able to verify the validity of PTE test scores in seconds.
In partnership with schools, colleges, and universities across Canada, ApplyProof already enables secure, efficient verification of official student documents such as Proof of Acceptance. The partnership with Pearson adds Proof of English Language Proficiency, a giant step toward ApplyProof serving as one place to verify international student documentation.
“We believe our partnership with ApplyProof will help us do this by enabling students and verifiers to share and access PTE scores more quickly and easily than before,” said Assia Hamdane, Pearson’s director of PTE in Canada. “We look forward to the benefits of our innovative partnership having a positive impact on international student migration into Canada.”
Canada has been a top study destination for Indian students going abroad because of student-friendly regulations. Canada's strong healthcare system has also made it an especially attractive global study destination over the last year. The partnership with ApplyProof will enable students to be confident about applying to universities in Canada.
“We believe that partnering with Pearson will bring a new level of clarity, certainty, and ease-of-use to the processes for students, immigration officials, and institutions,” said Iman Hassani, head of ApplyProof.
“With wider acceptance of PTE in Canada, which is continuously increasing with more universities, this partnership has even greater relevance for Indian students, who represent more than 34% of the total international students in Canada,” said Ramanand S.G., vice-president, sales and marketing, Pearson India.
PTE Academic is accepted by over 90% Canadian Universities and colleges as proof of English language ability.
The PTE Academic Score Report includes overall score, communicative skills scores and enabling skills scores. The overall score reflects overall English language ability. The score is based on performance on all items in the test. The range for the overall score is 10-90 points.
