In this section of our web site, candidate students may be informed about some of the most common english language certificates. IELTS is usually the best option if you want to study in the UK. In the IELTS exam your score should be between 5.5 and 7 out of 9 to have increased chances of being accepted by a British University. If you have another English degree (e.g. Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English or Michigan Proficieny), this can be used as an extra qualification, but you will not avoid the IELTS or TOEFL exams. So if you plan to study abroad (especially in Britain), it is safer (and cheaper) to prepare for the IELTS or TOEFL exams on time.
