If you are sure about UK. Prepare for IELTS (practice hard) and also try to understand your area of interest properly. Take some certification/programs/courses related to it, to know if that's really what u want to select.

Bhargav, you should do what you like and follow your dreams, before you land in UK do the following: Take lessons in Basic Java and Advance Java now known as JEE. Also learn C, C++ basics. Do learn basic in System Admin, CCNA or other Cisco courses this will get you part time jobs there so you can survive there.

Most of the people find Writing and Reading difficult. It all depends on how you practice. Only practice for every section can help.

Well, Kishore, it varies from different candidates but most of the students face problems in Writing part. If you are an average user you might face problems in reading as well. But, anyhow, it can be covered up by extensive practice.

Hello, if one do not have some basics in English language then doing a crash preparation in a short time does not help in getting a desired score. In short "How you plan and prepare" is more important than the number of days of preparation.
Achievers Point | 11 Feb

As far as preparation time is concerned it depends on the smartness of the person.

Both are language efficiency tests but differ in the format, TOEFL is online based test whereas IELTS is paper based test.
Anjali Magoo | 27/11/2016
The TOEFL offers only academic English; the IELTS offers an academic option as well as a general test; this is generally the preferred test for immigration purposes to the UK and Canada. The IELTS academic test and the TOEFL compared to the IELTS general test are both more difficult, but they are usually the only options if you want to study at any level higher than secondary school. No matter which test you take, be aware that the scores all expire 2 years after your test date.
