English Language Tests Required to Apply to Canada:


  1. TOEFL: There is a worldwide recognition for TOEFL. It’s a test of how well you can understand and use English language. The 4 components of the TOEFL test are Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. There are more than 50 test dates available annually. ETS (the body that organized the TOEFL) offers some free and paid material for you to prepare. We recommend – watching movies from Hollywood, striking up conversations with strangers while on public transport and learning how to use that new word you learned in a sentence correctly.
  2. IELTS Academic: British Council (UK), IDP (Australia) and Cambridge English Language Assessment came together to create this test of English. It has the same 4 components as TOEFL – Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking but, they conduct the first 3 on the same day and the speaking test can be 7 days before or after this. The tests dates are up to 3 times a month.

Entrance Tests Required to Apply to Canada:


  1. GRE:(US$195 and additional score reports US$27) – ETS conducts this computer delivered test, the same body that conducts the TOEFL. It tests your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing. Irrespective of your educational background, the GRE acts as a common measure of comparison for universities. A score of 320+ means you’re looking at the top schools. ETS provides free and paid preparation material through their website. You will have to take this for few post graduate courses in CANADA unless you’re looking at a management degree, in which case the GMAT is preferred. Most universities do accept both.
  2. GMAT (US$250) – Quite simply, this exam will showcase your skill set. Most universities rely on your GMAT score to predict how well you will do in class. It’s a 3 hour 30 minutes exam that tests your analytical writing, integrated reasoning, quantitative skills and verbal skills. The GMAT website offers a variety of preparation material. If you get a score of 650+, you will get into the top universities. Keep in mind that this is a practice driven test, the more mock tests you give, the better you will become.
