    Benefits Other Than Admission 

    A good IELTS, GMAT, GRE score, and along with relevant GPA, would undoubtedly help Indian students get admission to their chosen University in Canada. A good IELTS score can also have other benefits such as:

    1. Increase your Express Entry point- A good IELTS score is one of the ways to improve Express Entry Point. Also called the Comprehensive Ranking System, these points are awarded to candidates who wish for a permanent residence in Canada. The points are awarded on the basis of language ability, age, work experience, etc. Those who have a high IELTS score can get up to 160 Express Points. 
    2. Highlight your application form - Since most Canadian universities have a minimum IELTS score requirement, anything above the minimum would catch the eye of the admission committee. 
    3. Help get a Teaching Assistantship role -  Students with a good score in IELTS along with other relevant qualifications will have higher chances of getting a teaching assistantship role than those with a lower IELTS score. 

    Taking the IELTS is a good way of ensuring your admission to your dream university in Canada. If you score well in the IELTS, GMAT or GRE and have other relevant qualifications, who knows that you might even land a scholarship for your entire program and provide you with a chance to study in the best university of Canada.
