There are various alternatives provided by universities for the evaluation of English for students who wish to study overseas without IELTS. Listed below is a comprehensive list of options to choose from if you wish to apply the same.

Some universities overlook English language proficiency tests for students who have lived or studied for the last four years where English is considered as the primary language of instruction.
Students who possess excellent communication/ soft skills are also exempted from providing IELTS scores. 
There are various alternative tests like Pearson Academic Test (PAT),  Duolingo English Tests (DET),  Cambridge Advanced Exam (CAE), ACT (American College Testing) English test, SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), AP language and composition exam,  AP English Literature and Composition exam, etc. Universities abroad accept admissions if you provide scores on any of the selected tests.

I hope this helps!

Your desire to study abroad with a CGPA of 7.5 and without an IELTS score is indeed feasible, but it requires careful planning. While the IELTS is a common requirement for universities in English-speaking countries, alternatives exist depending on your destination and institution. Some universities accept other proficiency tests like the TOEFL or PTE, and a few may even waive the English proficiency requirement if you have studied previously in an English-medium institution. 

You should start by identifying the countries and universities that align with your academic and professional goals. For instance, many universities in Norway, the Netherlands, and even some in Germany offer programs in English and may have flexible language requirements. Additionally, consider whether the program offers a pathway course, which could serve as a bridge if you're unable to meet the language requirements initially. 

Another practical step is to directly contact the admissions offices of the universities you are interested in. They can provide detailed information about the language requirements specific to their programs and offer guidance on any preparatory courses available. It's also advisable to check if any scholarships are available that might support international students like yourself. This approach will help ensure that you find a program that fits your needs without the IELTS, leveraging your strong academic background to your advantage.
