English proficiency tests are exams that universities use to determine your knowledge of the English language, and whether or not you would be able to communicate effectively with your peers. There are two main types of English proficiency exams: The IELTS and TOEFL.
The International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. The test is composed of four sections speaking, listing, reading and writing. Please refer to our subpage for tips to ace this exam!
The TOEFL is one of the prominent standardized tests used today. It is a proficiency test, in the sense that it examines an international student’s ability to read, write, speak, and listen in American/English speaking universities around the world. The test, much like the IELTS, consists of 4 parts: the reading section, the writing section, the listening section and the speaking section.
