English proficiency exam is mandatory for UK admissions. Students are expected to score at least 6.5 in IELTS and minimum of 90 in TOEFL. You can visit British council website for further information about IELTS.

HI Anupam, Yes there are Universities you can apply without IELTS, GRE but its very rare and difficult.. Most Universities will give priority to students with IELTS, GRE scores

Hi, yes appearing for exams like IELTS/PTE is mandatory. Even if a university/college waives off IELTS, its a must dusring visa process. I suggest you take advice from The Chopras, they are the best when it comes to study abroad,
