Due to recent students' enquiries about which test should be taken prior to enrolling at university, I decided to publish a few lines to point out some of the differences and purposes of the CAE and IELTS tests.
In my opinion, the IELTS test is a much broader test which suits candidates from all language abilities ranging from beginners all the way to proficient users. If you decide to take the IELTS because you wish to study at an undergraduate level you should consider the Academic IELTS. However, the CAE is much more level specific test suitable for candidates with very good language skills, for this reason it could be overwhelming for modest users. This test should be preceded by FCE (First Certificate in English) which corresponds to intermediate level, otherwise modest language users may find very challenging attempting an advanced exam such as CAE.
The two tests use different band scores
The table below shows how they compare:
IELTS band score CAE score CEFR level
8 80 C2
7.5 74 C1
7 67 C1
6.5 58 C1
6 52 B2
5.5 47 B2
5 41 B2

Both tests are widely excepted by UK universities and employers and aim to assess language skills.
If you require specific information regarding entry requirements, you should consult the university you wish to attend but as a general guide you should be at at least 7/67/C1 User or above.

Under s21B (1D) and s21C (2A) of the Medical Act 1983, IMGs are required to satisfy the Registrar that they have necessary knowledge of English before they can be granted registration with a license to practice in the UK.
A recent overall score of 7.5 is the minimum required in the academic version of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
Doctors must achieve no less than 7 in each of the four areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The majority of doctors who have to demonstrate their knowledge of English Currently do so by achieving the required scores in the academic version of the IELTS test. IELTS is an objective method of demonstrating proficiency in English and is widely accepted by many employers, regulators and Professional bodies.
