There are various different criterias for different schools and you can’t pin-point one as the absolute correct one. For starters, you will need proof of over 70% marks in the English language in your high school transcripts. It is done to prove that you are well familiar with the language. You will also need to confirm that your school was an English medium institute.
Even after all these things, you are not finished. In the last stage, you will have to undertake a university designed English language program. They are very short-term and not that hard. But in a way, you will be passing an English language test that is not IELTS or TOEFL. Therefore one way or another you will go through an English language test experience. If you want to understand more clearly, consider it as an absolute requirement for studying abroad.
It doesn’t really matter whether it is the UK or the USA; you will have to go through an English language test somehow. It is smart to prepare and attempt for the exam as soon as possible. Because with time, many application rounds get close. Students face more competition or fail to apply to a current intake. It’s never good to delay your education a year or two. It's a waste of time and money.
