The bar for studying abroad is not set by IELTS. There are many more tests that can be taken for university study abroad programmes. IELTS can be replaced by other English proficiency tests, such as the TOEFL, PTE, Duolingo, etc. Your application to study abroad does not need to include IELTS, therefore not all countries demand it.
If you don't want to take a language test, search for colleges that don't require one. Yes, there are a number of universities that don't require an IELTS score or, really, any score on a language test. The UK is the nation with the most universities falling under this category. Here is a list of UK universities that have waived this requirement:

University of Bath
University of Manchester
King's College London
Cardiff University
University of Liverpool
Lancaster University
University of Strathclyde
University of Birmingham
University of East Anglia
Newcastle University London
 
Lastly, if your previous academic background was in English only and you received a respectably good grade in the language subject, certain colleges will also waive the English language exam requirement. For instance, if English was your primary subject up through class 12 and you had an easy 75%, and even if you are studying English exclusively for your bachelor's degree, you may be exempt from taking a language test. This point is dependent on your profile and the university to which you apply because criteria differ between institutions and depend heavily on the applicant's profile.

If you still want to apply for universities with IELTS score, then you need to prepare for the IELTS exam and give it another attempt.  You can get  IELTS test prep tips, tricks and FREE resources curated by Study Abroad Experts and top school alumni to ace your IELTS. 

Hope this helps!
