Hii Makirat,

You have a great IELTS score that might enable you to avail a lot of admissions and scholarships as it is even admissions with scholarships. Please specify as to which field are you looking a course in to pursue from Canada. Canada has a lot of provinces and all the provinces have a different fees and other eligibility requirements.

Hi aspirant
To study in foreign countries i.e. where English is an official language, all these countries ask for IELTS and they have different different scores for different countries. IELTS score lie between the scale of 0-9. And SAT is for graduation courses and GRE for master courses . And both of them have scholarships.
