What are the types of TOEFL Exam?

Candidates should be aware that the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is held in two formats, viz. TOEFL iBT (Internet-based Test) and TOEFL PBT (Paper-based Test).

Read on to know more about the two formats of the TOEFL Exam.

What is TOEFL iBt?

Log in to your TOEFL iBT account and click on the scores option. You will receive your results after 10 days of your test. However, it will take at least 13 days (after the test date) for printed scores to reach you. These scores will be valid for the next two years from the date of the declaration.

How are TOEFL Scores calculated? 

For calculating TOEFL scores, both human raters and automated scoring methods are used. This is done in order to offer a complete and accurate picture of the candidate’s ability. While the automated scoring method has the advantage of being unbiased, it does not measure the effectiveness of the language and content. Human raters are required to attend to a wider variety of features, such as the quality of ideas and content as well as form. Also, you are expected to answer at least one question each in all sections. For reading and listening, you should answer at least one question. For writing and speaking, you must attempt one task each. For the online TOEFL iBT test as well the result is four-scaled along with a total score. The four-section scores of the TOEFL are divided as follow:

How to access TOEFL Scores?

Viewing your TOEFL scores has never been easier. Around 10 days after your test date, you will receive an e-mail informing you when your score result will be available. Since the TOEFL test is administered through the Internet, you will be able to view your results online. For that, all you have to do is log in to your TOEFL account on the TOEFL website and click ‘view scores’ to see your scores. You will see the list of dates, they will provide an estimate of when your score result will be available for viewing.

When will TOEFL Official Score Reports be available?

Printed reports are mailed 13 days after your test date. After that, you need to allow at least 7 to 10 days to reach you. This process can’t be hurried as ETS has no control over the delivery of the mail. Your TOEFL scores will be valid for two years.

What is a Good TOEFL Score?

快穿系统女主深吻hAlong with the total score, your score report will also include performance feedback. This is an assessment of your overall test performance with a suggested description of the tasks you can do, within the score range obtained. This will give you an idea if you have fared well, what are your strengths and which sections do need to improve. ETS has further divided each section into High, Intermediate and Low levels score for Reading and Listening section.

  • High: Simply put, High-level scores help you in getting into the best or top universities. Your chances of being accepted by them increase drastically if you score anywhere within this range. Ivy League schools usually target these scores for setting a cut-off.
  • Intermediate: Intermediate level scores will help you get into good universities as these scores meet the requirements set by most of the top 100 universities.
  • Low: Low-level scores speak for itself. Scoring within this range may not get you into good universities or the university you have short-listed. However, you can consider getting through conditional acceptance programs such as foundational courses or Pathway programs with these scores, if any university accepts scores within this range. 

快穿系统女主深吻hFor the Speaking and Writing sections, ETS has given four levels of score range like Good, Fair, Limited and Weak.

  • Good: A Good-level score will help you get into top and upper-mid ranked schools. The higher the score, the more the chances of getting into an Ivy-league university
  • Fair: Scores within this range can get you into mid-ranked universities. Most of the good universities accept scores within this range for STEM programs as finding such scores quite impressive.
  • Limited: Generally speaking, these scores can get you only conditional acceptance. You may have to go through different programs like the Pathway Programme to get acceptance into a particular course at that university.
  • Weak: Full acceptance is very unlikely with such scores. Some low ranked universities may offer conditional programs, however, such cases are quite rare.

What is the validity of TOEFL scores?

Your TOEFL scores are valid until two years post the declaration of your result. If you are not satisfied with the scores of your first attempt, you can try again as there is no limitation on the number of retakes. However, there should be a 12-day gap between your retakes; i.e if you have a test appointment for today, you cannot register for another appointment for the next 12 days. Read more on TOEFL Scores and Results, here. 

TOEFL Cut Off

There are no minimum passing marks required for the TOEFL exam as each university or educational institution decides its own score range or minimum score required. There is no such thing as a cut-off for the TOEFL score as each university will set its score range according to their own requirements. Top universities or Ivy-league schools generally set a high score range (79 and above), which may change each year. Thus, you need to keep a check on the changes brought in by the universities by keeping a check on their website for any such updates. Read more on TOEFL Cut off, here. 

How to Send TOEFL Scores to Colleges?

Hello Tanushree. thank you for writing in. you got to understand the fundamentals behind the exams. While PTE, IELTS, and TOEFL are English eligibility exams that determine the candidate's proficiency in English. GMAT and GRE are graduate-level exams required to apply for B-Schools. there are colleges that can wave off your GMAT requirement if you have relevant work experience however, you can never substitute your GMAT with either your TOEFL or IELTS scores as they do not serve the same purpose. In the meantime do go through the following:

Hi Nikhil, it should be enough, some universities may not even require a GRE score. Please check university admission requirements as they differ. MS admissions are highly competitive in Canada, to get accepted and with a scholarship means you must have a very strong academic and research oriented profile.
