The Importance Of English When Applying For A University Overseas

Most students have a very high knowledge of their chosen subjects and will usually have very high grades in these subjects. However, when it comes to the time to apply for university, they will be surprised to get a rejection letter and will usually be very confused as to why this has happen with all the amazing academic results that they have submitted. The answer to that question is English. The majority of high end universities pay very close attention to the applicant’s knowledge of the English language and given that we live in an era where English is abused and changed by young people, it may not be as easy for you to pass these English fluency examinations.

Do your research

The first thing you will need to do is to short list all of the universities that you are interested in alongside another list of all the courses of study that you are interested in. Once you have done this, you should be able to cross reference these two lists on the internet to find out which of the universities that you have chosen offer the best courses of study in the field that you are aiming to study. This should reduce your list significantly and bring it down to about five universities at most. You will then need to look at each of these universities and study their English language testing requirements and you will need to prepare to take these examinations from months ahead of time. Depending on the country that you are visiting, you may need to either take the IELTS preparation course to prepare for your IELTS or examination which by standards of English, is a rather basic examination however in terms of timing or practice for SAT, which is a lot more complicated in terms of language. You will find that completing the exams in the given time is near impossible and therefore will take a lot of practice.

SAT preparation Dubai will need to be done for a lot more time than with IELTS because if you are fluent in English, you will only need to practice with your timings for IELTS however with SAT, it is not just the timings but it also the advanced standard of the examination as well.

Preparation for English language tests does not start a few months before university, it starts when you first start to grasp the language and you first start to read. You need to make sure that you are well versed in the correct language and vocabulary and that you are not drawn in by the “text speak” and the incorrect spellings of words that are becoming popular and accepted today.
