Answers

Hello Shrila, it is TOEFL preferred by universities in USA. However these days even IELTS is recognized by many universities in USA (but not by all yet). Most people say IELTS is easier but others may have a different opinion. If you plan to study in USA, take a TOEFL test. TOEFL is recognized by all universities and colleges in United States so youíll not have any problem for admission if you take TOEFL. IELTS generally means for studying in UK, Australia, or Canada.
