The ACT test is designed to assess a high school student’s preparation for college and to give universities a single piece of comparable data with which to evaluate all candidates. Standardized test results will be compared against your high school GPA, courses you completed, letters of reference from teachers or mentors, extracurricular activities, admissions interviews, and personal essays by college admissions staff. It varies from school to school how significant ACT scores are in the college admission process.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) was created to assist you in moving to a country where English is the dominant language in order to work, study, or move. This covers the USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and others.
During the test, your proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing English will be evaluated. IELTS is scored on a scale from 1 to 9.
The British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge English all jointly own IELTS.
