I want to study abroad for my master's and I don't want to give any language tests. So, is there any chance that I can study abroad without an IELTS or TOFEL and on a budget too?

Yes, ofcourse. IELTS is just a language proficiency test and not a benchmark to study abroad. The two countries that you can target majorly are UK and Canada.

1. Pre-sessional English course 

2. Certificate of English as an Official Language 

3. More than 70 % marks obtained in English in 10th & 12th standard
