However, as the selection procedure of IELTS 2018 varies between organisations, candidates need to be thorough with the admission requirements of the respective institute at the time of filling up of the IELTS application form. While every organisation sets its own entry requirements pertaining to the IELTS 2018 selection procedure, in some cases both versions of IELTS may be accepted as well.
