Duolingo English Test: an alternative to IELTS

Hi everyone!
We all are aware of the current situation of the World. Most of the countries are still in lock-down and some countries have open business with few restrictions. I pray that you and your loved ones stay safe and sound.

I heard about Duolingo English Test back in March 2020. I was getting ready to attempt my IELTS but the whole country went in lock-down and all the tests were postponed for an unknown period of time. I was already conditionally accepted at a university in Ireland.
