FAQS

What are the exams needed to be cleared to study abroad?

IELTS/ TOEFL is require to take admission in UK, Canada, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia , USA and many other country to fulfill the English Language Criteria.

Universities in the US need the GRE and TOEFL for admission to non-business programmes at the Master’s level. At the Bachelor’s level students need to appear for the SAT and SAT subject tests.

Do I need a 16th year of education to study abroad?

US and Canadian universities need students to have 16 years of undergraduate education for admission, although a few universities have waived this requirement now. It is better to pursue at least one year of a Master’s degree course and fulfil this requirement before you apply. UK Australia, New Zealand and European universities, on the other hand, follow the 15 years of undergraduate study pattern which is similar to the Indian system of education and hence don’t need a 16th year.

What is the new GRE?

The new GRE promises to reduce the focus on vocabulary, eliminating antonyms and analogies completely. In the Verbal section, the focus will shift from vocabulary to reading comprehension, and quantitative reasoning will focus on data interpretation and real life scenarios. All in all, the new GRE will be like the GMAT in many ways. Give yourself minimum three months of preparation time for the GRE. I highly recommend that you refer to books such as ‘The Official Guide to GRE’ as well as ‘Barons Guide to the new GRE’. Nonetheless, with effective preparation you should be fine taking the new GRE. More information on the new GRE is available at www.gre.org. Each section in the new GRE will be scored on a scale of 130-170, making 340 the high score and 260 the low score.

During the OPT period if a company would like to retain a student for full-time work, they would sponsor his/her work (H1) visa which is generally for three years.
