Mostly all of you have completed the 12th examinations and now it is a big turn for all of you to choose what can I do the next? And out of the most basic question: where can I do my bachelors?
You will think upon either doing in India or doing in abroad. May month is going on already. You are required to identify the way. Many foreign universities have already started taking admissions as they the semester is going to start soon in September 2018. All of you who is interested in applying in foreign universities/colleges need to take steps as early as possible.
Firstly, decide upon which examinations you are required to take if you want to apply for studying abroad. So let me help you identify the test/examinations for abroad admissions.
The language test is taken by the students who are non-native of the particular country in which they want to study. Especially these tests are taken to examine the English language knowledge.
IELTS exam is one of the most common exams that are asked mostly in all abroad universities. Therefore, the full form is the International English Language Testing System. IELTS assesses your English language in – reading, writing, speaking & listening. The IELTS exam scores is accepted in U.K, U.S.A, Canada, Australia, Germany, New Zealand and many other European countries. The IELTS score system is 9 scale band bases. The more you get bands in IELTS exam out of 9 bands, you get admissions in good universities. The minimum band you require to get in IELTS to get good abroad university is between 6.5 -7 bands.
The full form of TOEFL is Test of English as a Foreign language. TOEFL is also one language test which many universities ask in abroad. It is many a times situation like either you are required to give TOEFL or IELTS. One of them is required to get admission in foreign university/ college. The TOEFL exam score is on 0 to 120 points distributing 30 points to each section i.e. speaking, listening, writing & reading. TOEFL scores are valid for 2 years starting from the test date and there are unlimited test trials.
The full form of PTE is the Pearson Test of English. There is a completely different pattern of taking the PTE test. Again, it measures your competency in four sections: reading, writing, speaking & listening. The exam is of three hours. According to 2018 PTE exam pattern, the writing and speaking module are integrated whereas listening & reading modules test taken in a different way.
Standardized test are a basically critical test that depends upon the course you chose to study abroad.
The full form of GRE is Graduate record examination. The GRE test has to be taken if you are looking forward to taking admissions in bachelors or masters programs in the countries like U.S.A, U.K, Canada or Germany. The test measures your verbal, analytical and mathematical skills.
Most B-schools ask for Graduate Management Admission Test. GMAT is a computer-based test and is used to measure a student’s logical and critical thinking ability, along with mathematical skills. GMAT is accepted by nearly 6000 business or management institutes around the world.
A standardized test is not being asked to all the abroad universities. Some will ask for standardized test scores or some will ask for language test scores. Likewise in Germany, when you take a standardized test like GMAT or GRE; though it is not mandatory, will add extra points to your profile.
