Hi Prashanth,

I am certain by now you would have read some useful relies upon your question. IELTS score is a small part of the equation. Your work experience, co-curricular activities and your SOPs and LORs play a vital role. Often SOP turns out to be the make or break in the process. All said and done; you can't rule out a good Ielts score. Try to put together a good performance in all of these, and you are good to go.

Your admission to a Canadian University depends on various factors. Your IELTS score and work experience represent just two of the many items that will help weigh your case.

  • Predominantly you UG percentage will be considered against the average of your university. Most universities in Canada will have a column wherein you can enter the grade of the University topper. It allows the Canadian University to look at your performance in a relative percentile manner. For instance - many of my Maharashtrian peers in university had scored in the 60% to 65% range during their undergrad, and the topper had secured around 69% for that stream. That would put their percentile score well into the 90s.
  • Canadian Universities require an English language test no doubt. IELTS is accepted, and so is TOEFL (this was valid until 2014 as far as I can be sure of). I had written TOEFL for my admission back in 2012. GRE is NOT mandatory in any of the major Universities. Many of them do not even have a section to upload GRE scores. But they accept scores if you believe that you have scored well and feel that it will help add an advantage to your profile while pitting you against other international applicants.
  • Your letters of recommendation need to be crisp and varied enough to outline different aspects of your personality and work profile. I had 3 of them, and I sat with my recommender to work out what he/she wanted to enlist and how we could arrive at the right balance. Trust me when I tell you, a strong LOR will do wonders for your admission and funding chances.
  • The statement of purpose is VERY often overlooked as a generic essay. Please spend a LOT of time drafting a good SOP. Each university will word your SOP question different. I had applied to 6 schools totally in the US and Canada, and each of my SOPs was a slightly different version. The University of Pennsylvania wanted three separate (short) essays, each talking about various aspects of what I wanted to do and what I had done so far. The University of Ottawa (which I finally chose) required a more explanatory note of why they should take me. Thus, your SOP can easily offset your UG grades. I had scored low during my 2nd year (I had topped in my first year) and I had an honest account of how I lost interest in studying and did not take it seriously as I felt the lessons weren’t up to the mark. I did not lie. I did not fabricate some “family difficulty” story (many do that. A friend in the admissions office told me countless tales of such occurrences). Be honest and direct. Canadians LOVE real people!
  • Extracurricular activities, social work, internships, and so forth add value to your profile. Your experience of 4 years will help a lot as long as it is relevant to your study field.
  • Finally, think carefully over what course you want to do and where. If your overall mark is less because you are not proficient in, say, VLSI design, it won’t be a big issue as long as you want to study optical electronics and have scored well in that field. Each university if prominent for specific areas of study. Take your time and choose. Please do not rush into picking some random university to gain an entry into Canada. There is enough opportunity for everyone. Make yourself stand out better by focussing a little during application.

Hopefully, you get into the university of your choice! Canada is a fantastic place to live in! The people will kill you with kindness.

There are many factors which would help you get enrolled in the right college abroad:

  1. Bank balance
  2. Cibil score
  3. Work experience
  4. 7+7+7+7 bands

I have been in touch with so many students who would change their college once they land in the country. This would be my advice to practice for nine, so; you achieve at least 7. Secondly, keep the bank balance high ( good coaching is all you need). You may have to take the exam twice, but if you take coaching from a reputed teacher who perhaps charges you more, however, it would be worthy. Third, never look for consultancies who seek money even from you and the college too. (YOU SHOULDN'T BE PAYING ANY CONSULTANCY). Lastly, if you are working and trying to apply abroad, have a maximum of five years of experience in your hand.

The top colleges in any country accept students based on thier academic background and thier intent to pursue thier field of study in which they have completed thier studies in India. Most of these universities look into the other activities you have pursued ( experiential learning) during your study. Most importantly, they look into your application to see how and why you have chosen to apply to a particular university and how you can contribute to the community once you graduate from this university.
I wish you all the very best!

IELTS does not help you to get  a seat in top colleges. It is a requirement for getting an entry in the unversities of some coutries. Different colleges looking for different scores averaging 6 to 6.5. Some unversities accept as low as 5.5. So it is not that IELTS score of 8.5 or 9 will help you get admission in top colleges, they have their own criteria other than an essential IELTS score.

Hi Prasanth,

Your overall academic scores and 8 bands in IELTS score will get you in any top colleges in any country. 

First of all, you need to finalize on the few things, first - which course you want to pursue, second - which country and then you can narrow your search on the colleges available in that particular country (If you are free of financial issues).

Hi Prasanth,

Guiding students since 2004, I have more than 15 years of rich experience in the overseas education industry.

IELTS is your English proficiency exam and not a competitive test like GMAT/GRE. It is important to score the required band in IELTS for your admission and visa but scoring high doesn't help in getting into a better University.

Feel free to get back if any further queries.

Thanks!
