IELTS is the abbreviation of the International English Language Testing System, and this is an English examination system which is expected to be taken by students with non-native English background who are thinking of studying in the UK. IELTS is a part of the usual procedure for admission to the UK. It tests a candidate on their listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills in English and scores you based on the same. If, due to any circumstances, you have missed your IELTS or did not appear for the same, then you do not worry, as many colleges do not require IELTS as a mandatory part of their admission process.
