Benefits of studying IELTS:
Being exemption in the English test in the national high school graduation exam:
One of the reasons why many students have planned “readily” to study IELTS very early is that an IELTS certificate with the average score of 6.0 or higher will help us be exempted from taking the English test in the university exam. This will partly help the students feel more comfortable and have more time to spend on the remaining subjects. In addition, achieving a band score of 6.0 or higher in the IELTS test proves that you have quite mastered the skills and had a solid foundation of English learning, making your English learning in the university classroom become easier and easier.
Being admitted to major universities:
Not only helping you be exempt from taking the graduation’s English exam, an IELTS certificate can even help you get admitted directly to the top universities! Many famous universities in our country have applied separate admission regulations for students with IELTS certificates such as National Economics University, Foreign Trade University, Hanoi University of Science and Technology, etc… with following requirements:
There are 2 subjects in the school's entrance exam that are not too low (excluding foreign languages).
Having 6.5 or higher IELTS certification, which is still valid until the date of application submission.
It can be seen that owning an IELTS degree with a high score will give students more opportunities to walk through the gate of their dream university, can’t it? Therefore, working hard and trying to study IELTS as soon as possible to achieve your aspirations in the surest way!
A simple way to “globe-trot”:
With the credit of the British Council, the University of Cambridge and the educational organization IDP, IELTS seems to have become the "standard" measure of foreign language proficiency that famous foreign universities take as the top criteria for student admission. Usually, the IELTS score enough to receive a scholarship falls in the range of 6.0 - 6.5 or higher depending on the school and country you apply to. Many Vietnamese students have achieved impressive scores and took the opportunity to study abroad at top universities all over the world. So, what are you waiting for without immediately starting to study for the IELTS to be able to make your dream of “going abroad” come true? Moreover, even after you complete your studies, an IELTS degree will still bring you many benefits. Your job application dossier will become much more "genius" and you will have the opportunity to work in positions with high salaries, even better, to live and work abroad. IELTS is the key to open the doors to the world, and it would be a pity if we missed the opportunity to explore this vast world!
