  1. British Award is available only if a student has taken Ielts test in Germany only? Is it so? I am not clear with this because rules say open for all nationalities and then says that ielts given in Germany only is ACCEPTABLE? How can a Indian student take Ielts exam in Germany for going abroad? Plz kindly clear those things

    1. People from all nationalities can live in Germany. The IELTS exam organized in Germany is not only for Germans. Therefore, it’s open for all nationalities. Recipients may study in Germany or abroad.

  2. I for instance I took the IELTS exam lol last November in Nigeria with a 7.0 I overall score. I have received a conditional offer from Birmingham City University. I am not qualified to apply for this job scholarship?
