TOEFL (iBT) is mostly accepted at the US institutions, although it is also accepted in many other institutions all over the world. On the other hand, IELTS is mostly accepted in the UK institutions, Australia and other Commonwealth countries.


Both IELTS and TOEFL have some similarities and differences. The similarities are –

1. Both tests comprises four sections – reading, listening, speaking and writing.

2. There are no separate sections to measure a candidate’s grammar in both the tests.

3. You can find four regional accents within US if you are taking TOEFL whereas if you are taking IELTS, you will find mostly British accent. Sometimes, you may find other accents in IELTS as well.

The major differences between TOEFL and IELTS are –

1. TOEFL is an Internet-based exam, thus known as TOEFL iBT.

2. IELTS is still a paper-based exam in most countries.

To help you decide which is easier or better for you, you should first know about the test patterns of both.

IELTS

· You’ll talk to an examiner face to face in the speaking section.

· IELTS accepts both Commonwealth and American spelling.

· IELTS not only covers MCQs but also a wide range of question patterns to test your presence of mind and ability to grasp.

· You can answer as you listen to a conversation in the listening section.

· You’ll get a gap between the speaking test and other modules. So you can chill around!

· IELTS lasts about 2 hours 45 minutes.

TOEFL iBT

· You’ll talk to a computer in the speaking section. It records what you say and an examiner assesses it afterwards.

· You should be able to type ‘in a super-fast speed’ in the writing section of the TOEFL.

· TOEFL exam covers only multiple choice questions, except for writing section.

· TOEFL follows American spelling – so you should be careful with the basics, such as ‘toward’ not ‘towards’. The best source to learn American spellings could be ‘Merriam Webster’ dictionary.

· You can answer only after listening to the entire conversation in the listening section.

· TOEFL lasts for about 4 hours.

Hope It Helps!
