Exams that you need to crack for studying abroad

Are you planning to study abroad this year? Looking for admissions at an American University? Or is it an Australian University that interests you? Or is it a Canadian University that you think you need to look for?

You should be clear about the course you want to take and the University you want to study in. Having figured out your study destination is a big step forward.

Once you are done with that, you need to think about the tests that you’ll need to take and the academic requirements you'll need to meet in order to get an offer from your chosen institute abroad.

Normally, for higher studies in a country abroad, Indian students have to choose from the following tests or exams: IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, GRE, GMAT or SAT.

To help you prepare for any test you need to take, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of tips and suggestions. Our articles cover every key aspect of various standardised tests foreign universities use to measure their applicants’ worth.

Our advisors can also provide you personalised guidance on the tests that you need to take, starting with in-person coaching for IELTS.

Many foreign universities measure your English language skills by looking at your IELTS or TOEFL test scores. A few universities allow you the option to skip these tests and take their own in-house English language test.

You can try our online IELTS mock test to know where you stand.

If you want to study at the graduate level in the USA, you will have to prepare for the GRE test. By going through our suggestions and recommendations, you’ll get clear idea and information about the test.

Similarly, the SAT is must for students looking to get into American Universities at the undergraduate level. Clearing the SAT test is all about being well prepared. We’ll tell you how to go about it.

If you are keen on doing an MBA abroad, then you will have to take the GMAT. If you follow our list of suggestions and prepare well for the exam, then there’s no reason why you can’t ace it.
