    • IETLS Vs PTE
      IELTS is a paper based exam, where you read and write your answers in paper, AND
      PTE is all computer based.
      In the case of IELTS the speaking part takes the form of an interview, and in the PTE you simply speak to the computer.
      ITELS has a maximum score of 9.0 and PTE has a maximum score of 90. We find the PTE Academic as a more difficult exam than the IELTS, because of the complex content and vocabulary used in the questions, as the listening and reading passages can be based on academic readings, making it difficult for someone that doesn’t have a good grasp of the language. Also, the speaking part contains a graphs and charts section where you have 25 seconds to study the image and 40 seconds to explain it.

  6. Hello sir ,
    I just enquired at DRDI office in my city regarding the requirements to avail this scholarship were they told me that IELTS is enough to avail scholarship . But here it’s clearly mentioned that GRE and IELTS is mandatory . Actually GRE is only accepted by the USA universities but not by the ramaining countries that stated above . When the countries ( UK,AUS,New Zealand,Japan ect….) and universities doesn’t require any GRE to issue admission why it is mandatory . Just asking to know the reason why one particular GRE ( which is accepted only by USA ) is made mandatory ..
