Yes you heard it right!!! Don’t be lazy while you are preparing for your IELTS as it is a popular test which is taken by people having English as a second language as proof of their proficiency. Around the world people especially the one not having English as their native language take the IELTS test to acquire a certification to prove their fluency in using the English language.
Its popularity can be very well judged by the statistics itself. Around 2 million tests were taken last year for study or work where English is used as a first language of communication.
IELTS not only is important for students who are preparing for abroad studies, but equally important while applying for work or for migration purpose. The IELTS examination is similar in respect of content, examiners, format, level of difficulty and scoring at all levels. If you do not score well and results are not satisfactory, obviously you need to bear the brunt of doing it all again, although there is no limit on when and how often you can retake.
Think Long Term!!! Yes think you being a working professional abroad. Multinational companies abroad need people who have great potential and do business with professionals or companies who have great fluency in English. And won’t it be easy for working professionals who have the desired certification and great scores. Those are the ones who can get the desired position and organisation that suits their qualifications. So, work hard now and later on party harder.
Have been getting good scores in English throughout your schooling and thinking of getting a waiver for IELTS for application to Universities. Think once again. Yes getting outstanding IELTS scores can stand a chance to get admissions to topmost universities. Better the ranking, better the program, higher is the IELTS score Universities require.
As a student if you are applying for a specific program and aiming to get enrolled yourself onto it then it is best to aim high in taking the IELTS examination. Suppose you are planning for USA and looking for an IELTS or TOEFL waiver then as per statistics, 20% it is a Yes and 80% No. Few Universities in USA take students without TOEFL and IELTS. However registration for IELP is required. Applying to other countries without IELTS could seem to be the easiest option initially but remember one thing that all top most Universities require IELTS and those Universities which allow waiver need us to submit various documents to get us eligible to apply without IELTS.
Moreover, with a great IELTS score, later on the school is assured that a student survives well with regards to the demanding academic environment and also greatly helps to interact with the teachers and co-students as well. So go for it!!
Even if you are not planning for any overseas affair, still having the certification can be a good credential for you to get hired in multinational companies.
