TOEFL/IELTS tests

Recommended Posts

My EA2 teacher told me that if you get a high enough score in EA2 HL (eg. a 5 or a 6) you don't need to take IELTS/TOEFL tests. Is this true? In need of your opinions and experience.

I suggest you still take it, TOEFL is pretty easy. The only problem is that it's expensive. If you do take TOEFL then you'll have double proof for universities that your English is good. You can give them your IB score and the TOEFL.

And as Aquarius said, check with the universities you have in mind. Many universities ask for SAT and SAT 2 or TOEFL and SAT 2, so yea.

Anywho, good luck. Edited by Anonymouser

yes i agree with all of you guys..
it really depends on universities. Even if you get good scores on EA1, some universities still require TOEFL or IELTS if you are a foreign students.
I guess american universities are requiring them more than UK universities.
But actually TOEFL is much easier than SAT or IB, so if you get a score on IB, it'll be fine.
So, it is always better to have a score on it, even though most universities might not need it.

hmm.. yeah... do more research on your desired universities!

This is what it is for Cambridge, so I suspect it's a strict requirement on a British scale:

En A2 HL: 5 or better to avoid TOEFL
En A2 SL: 6 or better to avoid TOEFL

Same goes for A1 HL & SL for foreign applicants.

[b]always[/b] ask universities about their policies. I emailed Georgetown University stating that I'm a full IB student they replied "if the main language of instruction at your high school was English, then you do not need to submit the TOEFL"

to be on the safe side TAKE IT. it's easy ;)

It really depends on the university. Most of us don't need TOEFL for where we want to go if we manage to get a good English grade, but one of my friends (who wants to go to Japan) needs a TOEFL grade either way.

University requirements can normally be found on their website.
