Every country has its own educational system. Thus, before applying for international universities or job opportunities, it’s important to find out where your qualifications stand in relevance.
If you’re interested in the US or Canada, knowing about WES is a significant step for you. This article will be your one-stop guide to everything you need to know about WES evaluation and how to go about it.
World Education Services (WES) is a private organisation recognised by most universities and employers across the globe.
They take your documents, verify its originality and then decide how it fares in comparison to the US educational system, based on the following parameters:
After dissecting each year, each course and score in minute detail – they assess your educational credentials and create an official report of the same.
Being one of the oldest non-profit educational evaluation org in the world, it’s assessment is trusted by most US/Canadian universities and employers.
But apart from helping potential employers or educational institutes gauge you, WES evaluation can help YOU the most.
Applying blindly to colleges and universities will only cause you to spend thousands of rupees on admission fees. If you are aware of what your GPA is and your educational standing baggage (history of where what and when you studied), you can make an informed decision and apply only to those places where there is a maximum chance of acceptance.
You first need to check if the college you are applying for requires a WES evaluation and of which type.
Depending upon the universities or your need, you can choose the evaluation package that most suits your need.
There are two types of evaluations:
First you need to apply online for a WES application number and choose the package you wish to go for.
You then need to mail your educational documents citing the WES REFERENCE NUMBER.
All envelopes and correspondence must include your WES reference number or they won’t be evaluated.
WES then evaluates your documents and creates an official report.
Based on the package chosen, WES will then share the report with the universities.
We spoke about how to apply for WES evaluation but what happens behind the scenes once they receive your application?
The timeframe for this process is around 7 days from receiving the complete application with fees.
There is an option available in ‘My account’ on the WES website where you can trace the status of your application.
If any document is missing or incomplete, the same will be updated on the website.
