IELTS VS TOEFL / Which is better?

As we all know, everyone wants to study in England, America and other countries. But it is necessary to go through several stages to achieve this dream, not by wishing 🙂

The first step is to learn English and get a certificate for one of the international TOEFL or IELTS exams.

I would like to note that 90% of the world’s universities can be admitted without any problems by taking one of these two exams.

TOEFL and IELTS … What is the difference? Is there a difference at all? Which is better? And find answers to other questions.

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language – means English Test in Foreign Language)

IETLS – (International English Examination System)

Many American colleges and universities accept the results of one or both of the two tests. The results of the TOEFL exam are valid for 2 years, after which the exam results are officially considered invalid. Thus, during this period, the examiner’s language skills may be significantly impaired. Many colleges and universities usually prefer recently announced TOEFL scores. TOEFL is administered by the US Educational Examination Service (ETS) and is a trademark of its own. TOEFL exams are held in 80 countries around the world. The TOEFL board consists of a 16-member committee. IELTS is owned by three companies and can be used to apply to universities in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. IELTS tests are organized in more than 121 countries. IELTS was originally created for admission to universities in the United Kingdom and Australia.

Registration procedure TOEFL is simpler You only need an internet connection and a credit card (debit card) to register. To apply for the IELTS exam, you need to fill out a form on paper, then 2 photos and a copy of your passport. Then you need to take these notes and come to the center where the exam will be held, and you need to submit these documents and pay there.

In many countries, universities prefer the online TOEFL test.

TOEFL and IELTS exams are based on almost the same principle. Both exams consist of 4 parts. However, the speaking part of IELTS is different from the TOEFL. Thus, in IELTS, the “speaking” part of the exam is conducted live with the participation of the teacher. First 4-5 minutes of acquaintance, then 4-5 minutes of discussions. The exam is recorded. It is possible to give 3 parts of the exam for 1 day, and the other speaking part can be given until the last day of the exam. This can be extended to about 1 week.

In the TOEFL exam, the speaking section consists of 6 questions. 2 questions are free and 4 questions are narrative. IELTS lasts 2.45 hours and TOEFL lasts 4 hours.

In addition, my recommendation is that if you want to study at any university in the world, you must first determine which exam results are suitable or important for you to apply to that university, and then prepare for one of these two exams.

Good luck 🙂
