I am an IB student and keen to apply in MIT in fall 2021. Do MIT accepts IELTS for english proficiency or does it only accepts TOEFL?

Hey! Unfortunately, MIT does not accept a substitute for IELTS (they only accept TOEFL).

Please see this link from MIT admissions

Good luck!

The information in the accepted answer is completely incorrect and MIT accepts the IELTS.

Their link is incorrect as well.

If you are applying to MIT you will want a 7.5 score.
