IELTS Eligibility – What are the eligibility requirements for taking the IELTS test?
The IELTS test is a test of your proficiency in English. For now and we believe for the coming times also, there is no minimum eligibility nor will there be any to appear for the exam.
British Council and IDP Australia have kept this test open to any individual who wishes to study in a native English speaking nation. Since all the universities in western nations use English as a primary language of instruction, the authorities see the IELTS test scorecard to validate whether you will be able to absorb the learning in a seamless and easy manner or not. You take the paper to show that you have an understanding of the English Language and can easily communicate in this language.
What are the minimum IELTS bands required by Top Universities?
Every course and every university have different requirements and they create their own guidelines for their courses. For example, if you are applying to LSE (London School of Economics), a standard course requires overall of 7 bands and no less than 6.5 bands in any of LRWS.
On the other hand, if you are applying for any of the law programs in LSE, you have to have an overall of 7.5 bands with LRW – 7 band and Speaking -6.5 band. Experience has shown that students who are fully proficient in English are best placed to make the most of all that LSE has to offer, both academically and socially.
