You can definitely attempt IELTS in 2023 if you are planning to apply abroad in 2024. This is in fact what is recommended by professionals and experts. Having your test scores prepared in advance is always the right decision. Plus, when it comes to IELTS or TOELF, it gets even more true. IELTS test score is valid for 2 years so you are totally safe.

I can understand if a student waits to attempt GRE and apply abroad. Unlike GRE or other tests, IELTS is something that needs incremental learning. It’s better to prepare for IELTS with a good amount of time as it does not require you to do hard study. Just normal intervals but constantly will be good. If you are sure about applying abroad in 2024, you should start your preparation as soon as possible. If you already have, kudos.

But in case you have not started preparing for IELTS, it's better to prepare for it than attempt it. Don’t stress if it takes some time as many students attempt IELTS even after they have applied for a university abroad. IELTS is an English language proficiency test requirement that is importantly used for your visa application. The visa application is filed after you get your acceptance letter from the university so it is really okay if you clear your IELTS a little late. However, as mentioned earlier, it’s always better to be prepared in advance. Who knows what happens later?

If you want to know more about this like what countries prefer IELTS or how much IELTS score you need exactly, feel free to ask. I can also help you with university selection or with any other study abroad task. Thanks.
