Score Requirement in IELTS

  1. Nov 4, 2009 #1
    In order to get admitted into the ENGINEERING UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM in Canada for the foreigners, good score in IELTS is a must. But most of the universities have increased the requied score in IELTS from this year. For insrance, Waterloo University is now asking for 7.5, York University 7 and Ottawa University 7. But my question is do the universities are strick upon their such score in IELTS??? I mean, if i get 6.5 or 7 in IELTS then will the waterloo university accept me for the Engineering Undergard Progarm??? Because, Toronto University, McGill University are asking for 6.5 only. So does it really matter???

    Well, I Googled IELTS and Waterloo, and got this page:

    And perhaps the quote which directly answers your question of why they ask for this, and what they can do if you fail to meet the requirements:

    So, if you can somehow convince the Waterloo admission people that you a singularly talented person who must be recruited, then you are probably in. Otherwise, probably not.
