Which exam is required to study abroad?
Asked by Keerthireddy about 1 year ago
So for studying an MS in abroad universities, there isn’t one specific exam that you need to give. The exams that are accepted by a majority of universities abroad for an MS are IELTS, TOEFL and GRE. While IELTS and TOEFL are English proficiency tests, GRE is the standard exam which tests if you are academically ready to pursue the degree in abroad universities.
There are many universities that have waived off the GRE score requirement in the current covid scenario but you must check out on the university’s websites about the current status. Also, a very important point that you must remember is that each university has a specific score requirement for IELTS, TOEFL and GRE. For IELTS, an overall band score of 7.0 and above is safe and for TOEFL, an overall score of 100/120 is something that you should aim for. In case of GRE, any score between 320 to 340 would help you get your desired university.
Many universities in Europe have different entrance examinations and countries like Germany have their own language proficiency tests, so you need to first of all decide which country you wish to study in and then it would be a lot easier for you to aim for the right entrance examinations.
While GRE, IELTS and TOEFL are just the most accepted entrance exams, your bachelors degree also plays an important role while getting shortlisted. You should make sure that your bachelor’s GPA is above 3.0 to get into your dream university. Also, there are a lot of things which will contribute to your application, along with the entrance examinations like SOPs and LORs. I know that it is important to ace the entrance exams but you should also make sure that your SOPs and LORs are up to the mark and they briefly describe how you are the right fit for the university that you’re applying to.
As I mentioned earlier, the requirement is different for each university, so I suggest you let me know the course or university you wish to get into so that I can share the exact requirements for the same.
