Generally speaking students with averages above 70% (14/20) have a chance of getting admitted. So the very first condition is that you should have an average of 70% plus. Please note that depending upon the number of students and the spaces available in the Educational Institute, this average can greatly change.
The second requirement is that of language. You should be able to speak, read and write English or French. IELTS or TOEFL scores are generally needed for English.
IELTS academic scores of 6.5 are considered to be acceptable but some courses will accept an IELTS score of 6.0 and some others will need even a higher score.
There is no difference but more and more universities are going towards the IELTS scores, as there is a speaking component.
There are two types of IELTS offered General and Academic. For studies you will have to take the Academic and for Immigration the general.
Here is a table for conversion of IELTS and TOEFL
|625 - 680||263 - 300||113 - 120||7.5 - 9.0|
|575||232||90 - 91||6.5|

There are two types of scholarships that can be availed.
