Average IELTS scores at Canada’s top universities

All Canadian universities expect international students to have a good command of the English language. That is why language exams such as the TOEFL and IELTS are required for Indian students (some exceptions could be there). Because English is the medium of instruction, it is critical that everyone in the class understands the material. That is why IELTS scores are so crucial for college acceptance.
