Hello Everyone,

Many students mailed me to compare TOEFL and IELTS Exams and provide information as to which one will be more easier in terms of studying and scoring. So this post is entirely dedicated for comparing these two exams and providing you information with respect to which exam will be easier.

I saw many students first wanted to know which exam is easier so they can prepare for it, so this post will clear all your queries.

Which Exam is Better?

No exam can be considered as an easy or a tough one. It’s how you prepare yourself for the exam that matters. With respect to TOEFL and IELTS Exams, you can choose anyone of those. Both are equal. There is one difference though, IELTS speaking section will be an interview while in TOEFL speaking section, you will just be given a question your response is recorded. TOEFL Exam will be completed in a day while IELTS requires you to return for speaking test, since it’s an interview. So it’s up to you to decide which one to go for. TOEFL Scores are accepted by all institutions around the world while IELTS is not accepted in some institutions.
