Thought I would add. I have found an online testing service that tries to
compare the test score with the IELTS. That is, your test result could give
you an idea on how you would score on IELTS.

www.immigrationtesting.com

Perhaps this test could also be used as supporting evidence of skill
(although not at all conclusive)

Don't know if there is a French component. I hope they are working on one.
