Think Strengths & Weaknesses! 

For all of the language tests, your ability to speak, write, listen and read in English needs to be slightly higher than the level you need to achieve in your score. With that in mind, you should also consider which of your language skills are strongest, and your comfort level with varying situations.

Speaking

Take CELPIP or CAEL if you’re comfortable speaking to a computer, but take IELTS if you’re more comfortable speaking to a person face-to-face

Generating Ideas

Take IELTS or CELPIP if you are comfortable generating and writing about your own ideas, but take CAEL if you are more comfortable with prescriptive writing

Writing

Take CAEL or CELPIP if you’re comfortable writing with a keyboard, but take IELTS paper-based if you’re more comfortable writing with a pencil

Location

Listening

Stress

Note-taking
