I am sorry to break it to you but your IELTS score is on the edge. What I mean is while many universities can consider your application with an improved IELTS score, you would have to work really hard for it.

Don’t worry, IELTS score is an important factor but definitely not the only deciding parameter for your admission. If you manage to highlight other aspects of your profile where you come across as a good candidate, you can definitely have a shot.

If you are wondering, the other factors that you can consider are:
1. GRE/GMAT score

2. Bachelor’s GPA

3. Work Experience

4. Extracurricullars

And if you manage to get an improved IELTS score in your second attempt, that would definitely be an add-on. 

If you still feel confused, I suggest you directly get in touch with Study Abroad Experts here. They will analyse your profile and will suggest you the best aspects of your profile that you should highlight. They can also help you in shortlisting the best universities based on your profile.

Hope this helps!

With a score of 6, you're in a position that's both promising and challenging. 

In Canada, most universities require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, with top universities often demanding at least a 7. 

However, some programs may accept a 6, particularly if other aspects of your application are strong, such as your academic performance or letters of recommendation.

In the U.S., the average d IELTS score required is around 6.5, but this can vary widely between institutions. 

Community colleges and some state universities might accept a score of 6, especially for undergraduate studies. For those targeting a score of 6, it's important to research specific program requirements at the universities of your interest.

If your current score doesn't meet the requirements, consider retaking the IELTS. 

Many candidates improve significantly on their second attempt after focused study and a better understanding of the test's format.

Additionally, some universities offer conditional acceptance, allowing you to enroll in English language courses to improve your proficiency before starting your degree program.
