Hello! Can I get a scholarship for Computer Engineering(IOT) based on my TOEFL Scores? or Am I supposed to give another exam for scholarship after the TOEFL Exam? IF yes(for the second question), then will the university i enrolled in conduct the scholarship exam? Please let me know. Thank You.
TOEFL Scores are mandatory for one to apply for Scholarships! You must have a valid score in TOEFL before applying for Scholarships to study Abroad. There are various Scholarships given for Indians to study in numerous Countries. However, you must satisfy few Eligibility Criteria like required score in your 12th, decent TOEFL Score. Mostly, these 2 exams or sometimes maybe your GRE or IELTS Scores might be required depending upon the Agency you get the Scholarship from!
Hope this is helpful!
All the best!
After completing 12th class Ill take TOEFL exam and after scoring good Marks in TOEFL can I apply to medical college with scholarship in abroad along with NEET exam Marks will I get seat with low cost or for free seat in abroad
TOEFL is just an english testing exam, itsscore will obviously help you in getting a good college but in selected countries.
You havent mentioned which country you want to study MBBS in. In some countries like Kyrgyzstan, Bangladesh, China you will not be required to give TOEFL scores (you may still give the exam, it will be a choice not a compulsion). For MBBS in the good colleges of USA, clearing TOEFL/IELTS exams is compulsory.
As of 2019 you need to qualify NEET-UG examination and score at least 50% in PCB and English in 12th board to be eligible for mbbs abroad.
I will suggest you to make a plan first, start with the institute you want to get in
After that you can check the specific eligibilty criteria of that/those university/ties
After that you cn work on those requirements (besides preparing for your boards and neet) as well as make other necessary arrangements like passport and other documents.
is ioelts and TOEFL both important for caltech
