Campus Connections also sends its 'recommendations' highlighting individual students' strengths, explaining reasons for a student to be granted an admission. Universities in general consider this in their decision. Some Universities request for consultant's confidential assessment of the applicant / student. English language tests (IELTS / TOEFL) may be waived on the basis of satisfactory feedback of the student by the consultant
