IELTS scores are a common higher education entrance requirement throughout the GCC. Using multiple regression analysis the presenters aim to discover if IELTS scores or foundation program attendance are predictors of university students’ Grade Point Averages after 1.5 years of study. A recent cohort from a UAE university is utilized.
