      For Bachelors courses in USA, IELTS 6.0 is required. Are you open for other countries as well like Canada? There are many options in Canada for GNM students but IELTS should be 6.0 with no band less than 5.5

    My name is Damandeep Singh,

    I appeared for IELTS twice but my score is overall 5 with no bands less than 5. (March 2015 result)

    My matric is with 5.0 CGPA 2011 passout
    and after that I did Diploma in Computer Sci. with 57 % marks, 2011-2014 session.

    However, during my diploma duration I also applied for 10+2 Non medical from open school under CBSE board, March 2014 passout.

    I can see by using ESL there are some courses under which I may apply, but I ma not sure.

    What is your advice sir? Please guide me, as I am desperate to be a part of your university.

    • Geebee Counsellor says : Reply

      You have a conditional or an unconditional offer letter?
      Please speak to the university regarding this as most of the universities conduct English language exam at their end. If not so you will have to reappear for your IELTS. If IELTS dates are not available then take a PTE examination. PTE dates are easily available.
      For any further query contact us

    • Geebee Counsellor says : Reply

      We would suggest you that you reappear for IELTS as for PG admissions the IELTS score requirement is 6.5 overall. Some universities do waive off the IELTS if applicants 12th English marks are more than 65. Most universities also do offer pre-sessional English course if you have scored less than the requirement.
