  • There are some countries where English is the native language and they speak English only as their main Language. There are some non-English speaking countries. India is one among such nations. The English speaking countries always want students to have good standards and knowledge of English. So they want to test the candidate's skills not only in spoken language but also in literary English. IELTS and TOEFL are the two examinations that will test the English Language knowledge of an individual. That is why some universities and some countries ask for this qualification for the students who want to study in their country. If the candidate's language knowledge is not up to the mark they may not consider the candidate for admission.
    Both the examinations are equal almost but some feel scoring in TOEFL is a little difficult than IELTS.
    Both exams will have four papers: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing. The candidate's answers are partly assessed for linguistic complexity and sophistication. Both exams use multiple choice and multiple matching questions in the listening paper, multiple-choice in the reading paper, and ask candidates to write an essay.
    The IELTS will be giving grades on a band system from 1-9. The grade will be decided on the average mark from all four papers. The overall score will be rounded to the nearest half-band, TOEFL is a single test and is graded out of 120 points

  • Both the patterns IELTS or TOEFL are the essential means to test the knowledge of the aspirants in English being a foreign knowledge. While considering the popularity of either of the two tests namely IELTS or TOEFL, we would come across the candidates having their passion more for IELTS than TOEFL test.This would be more clear by considering the candidates appearing more for IELTS than the second one.
    However, both the tests are vital in the sense of scrutinising the candidates for visa purposes.
    Both the tests have some similarities and differences in the way of their modes.
    Both the tests have four different papers such as Listening, Reading, Speaking and writing. Candidates would have to write texts of increasing difficulty, complexity and sophistication.
    The task mode in the examination is different. They contain four features containing questions of multiple choice in and multiple matching types. There is also the inclusion of an essay to test your competence in English both grammatically and your structures of sentences. They would examine your overall capabilities in such tests.
    What is required from the students is that they should do some kind of diagnostic testing while taking up either of the tests. In practical terms, the only way for a student is to decide which of these two would would provide them comforts in course of these tests in terms of accessibilities of such patterns.
