Are meeting the language requirements enough or is a higher score better? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey! Recently, I gave the IELTS exam and got a 7.5. I meet with the english language requirements of all the unis that I'll be applying to. However, I am in two minds about re-sitting the exam for securing a higher band because my prospective universities (UCL, Warwick, Bath, St. Andrew's etc.) are highly competitive. Are meeting the language requirements just enough or getting a higher score prove more favourable for an applicant?
