Amid the Corona wrath globally, the IELTS exams are disrupted as well — in most locations, the IELTS is completely stopped keeping the health of both test takers and the examiner in mind. However, it’s still operational at some places where the spread is in the first stage. The test in Saudi Arabia has been suspended until 24 April which might get extended further based on the situation.
In India, the IELTS test is suspended at some location but operational at other — visit officially IELTS website to get the latest update.
Among all disappointments and letdowns, the good news is that ETS has launched a special temporary service amid Corona health concerns: TOEFL iBT® special home edition.
The test allows the test takers to take the test from home itself under the supervision of a human invigilator online — the test takers can take the test from the home computer itself.
The test is very similar to the TOEFL iBT® test delivered at a test center and it’s available only for a certain time period.
The test is most likely to be accepted by the universities and other education institutes where the TOEFL iBT® is accepted; however, do check with your institution if they accept it before booking an exam slot.
More details about the test can be found on the ETS official website e.g. details about the setup, registration, and testing.

It’s very important to know what it involves to become an international student. Which factors one can consider applying for universities and how to figure out the best place for yourself. Here at Edulley, you get everything right – it’s all for you.
I believe it’s easy to get started – all you need to follow the simple steps to give it a go.
Shortlisting the country: the first and the foremost step to get started is to figure out which country you wish to go for. The one where most of the people are going or the one which is right for you. This is almost one of the most difficult phases of your journey abroad. You can look for a country based on several factors: PSW (Post-study Work permit), employment rates, PR options, business & internship opportunities, what it takes to get there.
- Shortlisting a course: finding the right course is also as crucial as finding the right place to study. If you land in a top university for the wrong course, you are not going to be successful. Be a bachelor’s course or a masters one, pick the one that interests you – being free from social interest. There are hundreds of specializations – if not millions- that you can opt for. A specialized course is much appreciated and of course, it grants you the unique specialized skills in a specific area.
- Find the right university: the next step is to find the right university out of a few hundred – the university reputation does play an important role in making your success story. Take a look at the following factors to find the right options: University location, tuition fee, facilities, the investment made in the last five years, student population, the student to faculty ratio, accreditation and awards, ranking & popularity, and employment rate.
- Application: now once you have a list of universities and courses you wish to apply – it’s time to apply now. You need the following documents to apply: 10th, 12th, degree, passport, resume, SOP, LOR, IELTS and some miscellaneous documents. There can be some application fees as well to apply – some are paper-based applications and some are just online forms. Keep a track of the deadlines before you apply and consider applying at least six months before the course start date.
- Admission letter: After submitting the application, the university would start conversing with you – they would ask if any further information is needed. Each university has a different turn around time for this – this may vary from 1 month to 3 months. You may get a revert in a week as well, in certain cases. The university will send you an email about the decision on your application – be it a rejection or acceptance.
- Accepting the letter: After receiving all the offers, it’s time for you to decide the one which you want to go. You either need to pay a small deposit to confirm your place or just send your preference by email sometimes. The initial deposit amount course range from $2000-$10,000 USD.
- VISA: It’s time for you to file the visa – visa is a legal permit to travel to a specific country. If you travel without a visa, you will be deported at the airport itself. It’s important that you apply for the visa at least 2 months before your intended course start date – sometimes, it takes more than 45 days to get you the decision on your visa application.
