I am from Georgia (the country) and I aim to apply for a mathematics Phd in the US. My application in general is good. I have Gpa of 3.96, strong letters of recommendations, two preprints etc.
But my IELTS test scores are not as good. Listening : 6.5, Reading : 8.0, Writing : 6.0, Speaking: 6.0.
In many universities the minimal requirement for a teaching assistantship is 7.0 in speaking sub-score. I don’t have enough time to retake the test. Do I still have any chances of funding with these scores?
