If you wish to further your study in oversea, one of the entry requirements is you need to check your English qualifications. If English is not your first language, or you do not have an internationally recognised English qualification, you will need to provide evidence of your English language ability.

In all cases, proof of proficiency in English Language is compulsory. IELTS and TOEFL are the English Language testing methods that are most favoured. IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. Some people say those yang nak pursue their studies in USA, they are advisable to sit for TOEFL. Unlike those who wish to study in UK, IELTS is the way to go. Aku pon tak sure what's the different between both of them. Tapi from what I've heard, TOEFL takde one to one interview. Wallahualam =)

Jadi atas kesedaran diri sendiri dan semangat yang membara untuk belajar di negara orang, I had to sacrifice my saving by paying the test fee sebanyak RM570 to sit for the exam. Ikut hati, nak beli handbag. Tapi ikut masa depan, baiklah, bayar sajalah exam fees terbabit.

Speaking about IELTS, it has 4 sections, Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. More or less macam MUET jugak lah but MUET stands for Malaysian University English Test. So memang tak valid lah nak guna MUET result to enter their unis.

Bear in mind that you are not allowed to bring your own stationary inside the exam hall. All stationaries will be given during the exam day. In fact, you also need to leave your personal belongings like handbag outside the test room. Plastic bag will be provided for you to keep your valuable items like wallet, mobile phones etc. An invigilator will keep them for you while you are taking your test.

IELTS has so many categories either taking the IELTS for further study (Academic), General Training, Immigration or Work. So in my case, sudah tentulah yang kategori Academic =)

As shown from the picture above, that is the sample of the test report form. Kat bawah tu dia ada mention la your overall band score like band y/9.

Erm.. Apa dia? What band did I get? Anyway, cukuplah sekadar pengetahuan I got more than band 6 but less than band 9. As long as I managed to fulfill their English requirement is enough for me. Alhamdulillah =)

Maka, itu saja serba sedikit coretan mengenai my journey to pursue my PhD in obesi. So to those who are interested to sit for the IELTS, kindly log on to http://www.britishcouncil.org/malaysia

Toodles! xoxo

Best Wishes,
