BCIE Port Harcourt now offer a one day PTE Academic Preparation Class. The Intensive PTE Academic Preparatory Course is a preparation class for one full day allowing candidates to familiarise themselves with the test, pick up useful tips and practice at the same site where the test will be administered in Abuja. The test does not aim to teach English but is a preparation class aimed at getting candidates to pass their test first time round.
