Hi Sudalai,

Generally, the IELTS 2020 results are available 13 days after the test date. The IELTS results can be seen online via the candidate's IELTS registration account using the candidate's Identification Document Number i.e. passport number and registration number. However, the result of the computer based exam is made available after 5-7 days of the exam date.

I am currently studying for the NEET-UG 2021. I want to go to Cambridge University for MBBS. Apart from NEET and IELTS, is there anything I should be aware of? Also, what are the various choices offered for getting a scholarship?

Animesh Vats Student Expert 21st Feb, 2020


Well I must tell you that there are no such scholarship available to study medicine in UK specially for international students and the education is way too expensive. The exam you need to qualify depend on what the college demands. IELTS or TOEFL is needed as language proficiency requirement.

I hope my answer helps.

All the best.

Dear Sir/Mam, I want to do MS in UK in January 2021. Do i have to give both IELTS and TOEFL exams or either? I dont know when and how to start preparation. please Help. Thanks

Mayank Chowdhary 2nd Feb, 2020

Giving either of them is ok actually. And for preparations then if you plan to shift in 2021 try to give the exam in around November 2020 if possible and to start it's preparations, as per me it's a 3 months regular studies required to crack the same. So you can start in around July/August to be well prepared to give the exam.

Either the IELTS or the TOEFL is required as part of your application to an English-speaking university and will demonstrate if you will be able to understand the course material.

The IELTS and TOEFL exams are two of the most accepted English proficiency exams around the world. However, both of these tests are different in their structure, approach, and teaching criteria. This means that you need to understand how the two differ before selecting which test to study for and ultimately take.

Thank you.

All the foreign Universities offer a scholarship which is on the basis of meriat and need basis . You should try to look for it and inform the competent authority about it . They would help you in every way . They also offers 100 % scholarship to merit and need basis students.

This would help you to study abroad.
