Subject: Cover Letter Request
  Hello,
Can any one send me the example cover letter on what and how to write and mention the level of English proficiency and no requirements of taking IELTS. I have to submit the documents and want to submit a letter requesting a waiver based on my education and work experiences. Please forward me the example cover letter at am1475@rediffmail.com
Your help and suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Gagan

Hahaha - is this a joke?
You might just want to reconsider IELTS if you can´t come up with your own letter!

Thanks for your reply. It seems my posting is mis understood. Its not regarding how to write, I know excellent English. However, its regarding what technicalities must be included in a letter that convinces the VO that I dont need IELTS. If you know any points then do let me know.
Thanks and Regards
Gagan :)
PS: Hope this time I have been able to clarify!

Make sure ther is no mistakes in the letter and that you articulate your argument well. That is it.

BTW, your background must show conclusive proof of your language ability. A degree in engineering from a US university would not be enough. Neither would be working for a company that has an English speaking environment. Being a professional writer would be something that would demonstrate language proficiency.

Thanks,
Please let me know if the working experience in Asia, Europe and now USA will do? I am in Scientific Research field and at all these places the only medium of communication was English about the work. The country spoke different languages though.
Also, how is TOEFL score considered? (113/120 in iBT TOEFL)
Thanks and Regards,
Gagan :)

Gagan, you can try. It is up to cic to decide if it is enough. From what I understand, work experience in an English language environment is not enough and TOEFL scores are not accepted. Since English is your second language, I think cic would require you to take IELTS. However, that does not mean you can´t make a case, but I think it is a long shot.

Why choose the simple way if there is also a complicated one?!?

TOEFL is not accepted.
If you are not a native English speaker, you will have a hard time proving that your English satisfies CIC requirements without taking the IELTS test.
Why bother? Just take the IELTS test, it only takes a few hours to complete and it is the best and undisputed way to prove your skills. Everything else is less than 100% sure to succeed.

Put it this way: It takes less time to take the IELTS test than to prepare cover letters and all that..

Good luck either way!

All i did was: go to my both english teachers told them to write me a letter that I spoke, wrote,and understood English. That was it. They never asked me for IELTS plus my diploma plus work experience.
Good luck
