C1 Advanced, IELTS or TOEFL?

In general, all language proficiency tests align their results with the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), but they do so in different ways.

The C1 Advanced is the most sought-after English test for non-native speakers by the University of Cambridge and sets the goal level at C1, which you need to achieve. In contrast, the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test by the British Council is based on a point system that translates into an equivalent language proficiency level. Both the C1 Advanced and IELTS language exams originate from the UK, while the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test was developed in the United States.

As a tendency, it can be said that C1 Advanced and IELTS are more commonly accepted in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, while TOEFL is often considered a more suitable entry ticket for the USA. However, this is not always the case.
