  • For applying for a master in Lund University I did the IELTS language test. There are a lot of dates for giving a test, so you don’t have to stress about the time of applying.

  • I knew from one of my friends that IELTS is one of the best tests. I made a little research online upon the language tests and I decided to take IELTS.

  • As I had always been fond of the British examinations in English, I registered for the IELTS exam. I should admit it was a remarkable experience; despite the fact that the examinations were demanding and in consecutive order without any break in between, I do remember this examination for its impressive results, as I got a 7.5/9.

  • I took the IELTS test, because I found that it is the only one that is being asked in every country. I had planned to send more applications to other universities in different countries in case I wasn’t accepted.
