To Study Abroad--Why GRE/TOEFL/IELTS

Shishutosh Bhai is undoubtedly right regarding lack of interests of
our KUET students in these standardized English Tests like
GRE,TOEFL/IELTS. At the same time I would like to thank Khaled Bhai
for pointing out the disinterests to English spoken countries and
topics important to higher study especially in CANADA.

I want to share with you two. My opinion is as students around the
globe apply for scholarships in USA/CAN/AUS so universities are very
much eclectic to pick up the right people for them. As standard of
education often do fluctuates among countries so these standardized
tests plays a cardinal role for digging up a scholarship.

Shishutosh Bhai told that you got offer from very renowned
universities of USA but missed that opportunities due to lack of GRE
score. You see most average BUET students plans for USA and have their
GRE exams in 3rd/4th years. But we KUETians try to find short cuts for
scholarships without GRE & TOEFL/IELTS. I think there is no short cut
for life & success follows hard work.

Anyway I want to accrue up some points below with you two for current
students of KUET.

#1. *GRE+TOEFL required for USA.
[Even US citizens need GRE to get into graduate programs(MS+PhD) with
or without scholarship]
USA provides the max no. of scholarships around the world even
students from CAN/UK apply for it. Opportunity is most as the are
having the Top class Industries theres. A lot of BUET average graded
students going without spending a penny & only upon scholarships.I
personally know few of them.

#2.TOEFL/IELTS is english proficiency Test (different from GRE & TOEFL
is required with GRE those who apply for USA)& required for
International student having mother tongue not English (Yes! there is
some exceptions & very little students are exempted for outstanding
academic records and by managing Professors primarily in AUS in CAN)

#3.Candaian Universities sometimes ask for GRE scores(Top most like
Uni of Waterloo+ Uni of Torento).And either TOEFL/IELTS will do in CAN

#4.IELTS score is preferred to most Austrelian Universities & some
universities also allow TOEFL score.

For prospective students of KUET

#5. If anyone is interested & seeking scholarships then please
complete this GRE/TOEFL/IELTS before 4th year and apply in 4th year so
that you don't waste a year.Universities will allow the academic grade
sheets upto 4-1. GRE is valid for 4 years.You can sit for TOEFL/IELTS
even just after passing.

#6. Anyone can apply to Ph.D. programs in USA after B.Sc. No need to
complete his M.Sc.(Its a MS+PhD program). If you get admission in PhD
programs you are sure for full funding-Tution+Living+Others.

#7. GRE will take few months preparation with vocabulary building

#8. TOEFL (iBT)/IELTS will take not more than 1 month high
practice(Each having four parts-Reading/Writing/Speaking/Listening)

....I think its better taking preparation for these Tests rather
wasting time in gossiping or roaming around Khulna city...And student
life is the best time for these exams and you will always have buddies
to have practice in campus. Best luck for all my juniors and to all
Kuetians. Together We lived. Regards.
