Hi i moved to UK last 4 years and my English isn’t my first language i want to do ielts to go university. Does ielts cover GCSE English and maths?

I’m doing BETC level 3 this year. I do not have GCSE

Do I need to do GCSE maths?
Is it difficult to get 6.6 or 7 in ielts?

IELTS do not cover GCSE maths, but I've heard that a top IELTS score is equivalent to GCSE English. Judging from your post you may want to work on your grammar a bit more before you take the test if you want to get a top grade.

With regards to GCSE maths, you will almost certainly want to do it if you're planning to study anything but the arts at uni.

I hope this has helped.

https://www.ielts.org/ is purely a test of competence in English. From my (fairly limited) experience it's an alternative to passing GCSE English language if you have English as an additional language and didn't take GCSEs in this country. Not sure how acceptable it would be if you'd had a chance to take GCSE English Language but not passed. The IELTS grade you need for a course is normally stated in the entry requirements

For most university courses you would also need GCSE maths
