Question Description
Students from non-English speaking nations must do IELTS or TOEFL for admission. But what is the minimum score required in these tests for admission in US universities? What is the minimum score required in these tests to get admitted as BBA student?

What you've heard is true. Specially, US universities ask you to do TOEFL before accepting you as their student. TOEFL and IELTS show your ability to study in English language. Most of the universities in USA accepts you if you have more than 5.5 score in IELTS. But for admission in some universities like Columbia University, you need to score atleast 8.5 in IELTS. For iBT (Internet Based TOEFL), score of around 130 will be enough for admission in most of the Universities in USA. For PBT (Paper Based TOEFL) it is 450.

For high profiled universities, you must score atleast 260 in iBT or 620 in PBT.

IELTS isn't widely recognized in United States. It is actually developed for United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. For United States, TOEFL will be better because it is recognized by almost all universities in USA.

To be accepted as a student, you must score at least 140 in IBT and 500 in CBT. If you will be able to score this, you'll be accepted by most of the universities in United States of America.
