Questions related to IELTS
While booking ielts date i didnt select 5 universities to send score to. So can I send score to 5 universities for free after I receive my ielts result?
Hi, you can send it for free within 1 month of taking the test. A candidate may request up to five (5) additional TRFs to be sent to Receiving Institutions (universities, professional bodies, etc) within one (1) month of taking the IELTS test. TRFs sent by courier will be sent through DHL and students will be charged accordingly. If the Receiving Institution accepts electronic submission of scores then that can be arranged through the IDP IELTS office at no charge. More than five TRFs are subject to an extra fee plus courier costs. These are sent directly to the Receiving Organisations of your choice. Hope this helps.
can i do btech after polytechnic ( diploma) in out of country direct 2nd year
Those students who are interested in pursuing a B. Tech programme after polytechnic can do so by either of the two options. Students can get into a B. Tech programme through lateral entrance examination or the engineering entrance examination.
If the student takes admission through lateral entry, then he or she will directly gain entry in the second year of the B. Tech programme. One needs to remember that the lateral entry examination is a state-level examination.

I cant speak fluent English can I attend IELTS if any chance is there to clear the exam
hope you are doing well,
its very difficult to speak fluent English without practice but when it comes to the practice and guidance and coaching then students get easily confused so for this many of us like to overcome such issues by watching online videos, which is not worthful for any of students because you tube videos can not clear our doubts.
Apart from this, i also had same issue because I planned to join IELTS so I found the best institute to overcome my fear for the same. so The motivators (https://www.themotivatorscte.com/) are the best institute where you will definitely get good guidance even you can enroll your self for the IELTS
you can check the details for the same which is given below-
Hope this would be helpful for you.
