IELTS (or International English Language Testing System) is an English language proficiency test generally required for higher
education, immigration and employment.
IELTS measures ability in English language in all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. Since the medium of education is English in countries like USA, one has to be proficient in English language to grasp the subject while studying. Generally for Indian students who study in English medium schools, clearing IELTS with good marks is no big deal. However even high IELTS scores have little bearing on admission in foreign universities and in getting the scholarships etc. though it is required to be cleared by many universities for application process.
GRE (or Graduate Record Examinations) on the other hand measures analytical writing, quantitative reasoning and verbal reasoning abilities and is required for admissions to masters and doctoral degree programs in various universities. High GRE score helps in getting admission in high ranking universities and very high scores in GRE takes the student nearer to getting a scholarship.
A number of articles are available in the resources of ISC about the subject matter. The author may consider searching the same and study the same thoroughly for clearing her concepts.
