Hello Prasann,

IELTS will be the test that you have to take if you wish to apply to USA, UK and/or AUSTRALIA. USA is flexible in choice and hence IELTS is preferred.

Best wishes,

Hi Rathod,

Your test will depend on the University you opt for. It's better to first shortlist the Unis you want to apply to and then find out what tests you'll need to take. Otherwise, you might end up spending a bit of money to write one of those two tests and discover later that the Uni you want to apply for accepts another test score. Give these two articles a read to know more about IELTS and TOEFL:

Hi Prasann,

You can take either of the two as they are both tests of English. Almost all the universities consider either of the scores. However, IELTS is what I would recommend! Let me know in case you have further questions! Happy to help!!
