I have also opted for master degree in computers from a reputed university in Canada. Took classes from ielts zirakpur at https://marveledu.com/ and cleared the exam with overall seven bands. Got my test report form couple of weeks back. Applied for study visa through the same place. Waiting for the confirmation card and roll number. Fingers crossed for visa invite.
