Personally, i would like to choose IELT because you can develop four skill with IELT like Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking. And I think with a short of time for practice, IELT would be more suitable..

Re: IELTS or TOEFL? - October 8th, 2009

Hi, back here after a long time. Ultimately I ended up taking both the tests. The reason I am here today is because my IELTS Google alert pulled up information on another (new) test called Pearson Test of English Academic. In fact the site (happyschools blog) even gave a comparison table between the three tests. Any idea what's going on?

FYI, the site mentioned in the Google Alert was TOEFL vs IELTS vs PTEA

Last but not least, IELTS doesn't expire. TOEFL lasts 2 years

I guess that one is more UK English focused than the other, so that might be a decisive factor if you're more used to US English for instance.
But the fact that IELTS does not expire would indeed be the decisive factor for me.
