What will you choose Toefl or Ielts for admission

IELTS and TOEFL both are designed to test the English language proficiency of the non-native speakers. Students from the countries those are non-native speakers of English language interested in pursuing higher studies in English speaking nations need to take up any of these tests. These tests will evaluate student’s reading, listening, speaking and writing skills to the required extent. The fee for these tests will vary between $150 and $250.

The aim and testing procedure of the both tests are similar, but carried out totally in a different ways. This is causing into little confusion to select which one is better for their successful admission needs. Also, very commonly few aspirants will deliberately ask which one is easier too. Here, speaking part of the test is the major difference between both tests. This speaking part is carried out face to face by the examiner in IELTS while it requires answering 6 questions through microphone with TOEFL. These will be evaluated by the special examiner in the recorded version.

There is another difference between both tests that is scoring sheet. Here, IELTS rate the score between 0 and 9 while TOEFL offer it in numerical format grading. Also, TOEFL is conducted through a NGO education testing service while IELTS is conducted by British Council of the University of Cambridge ESOL examinations and IDP Education Australia in the pure UK English format. So, accent, spell variations and some more will always vary with each tests basing up on the examination conducting body too.
