If you are planning to study abroad, the admission process will require you to give one language exam and one standardised exam. However, depending on the country, course or college you are targetting, you may be exempt from standardised exams, but you would still be required to take one language exam to show English language proficiency. Depending on the course and college, you may also be required to provide scores of one standardised test.

Language exams 

The language exams show your English proficiency skills. You need to give either one of the language exams to get admission to any university in an English speaking country. These are required for almost all courses; Undergraduate courses, Postgraduate courses, Certificates or Diplomas (unless mentioned).

Different countries give preference to one language exam over others. TOEFL is the preferred exam for universities at US and Canada, while it is not accepted at many colleges in UK. On the other hand, IELTS is the preferred exam for getting admission to universities at UK, Australia and New Zealand. PTE is accepted at a few colleges in US and most colleges in UK. CAE ad CPE are given preference by the British universities.
