Information about the TOEFL test
Home / Business Schools / Language tests / TOEFL
The Test of English as a Foreign Language rates the applicant's proficiency in the English language. The TOEFL is only one formal criterion.
There are two versions of the test:
-   The TOEFL Internet based test assesses reading, listening, speaking and writing skills and lasts about 4 hours.
-   The TOEFL Paper based test assesses listening, structure (grammar), reading and writing and takes about 3.5 hours.
The Internet based test is far more common than the Paper based test as the Paper based test is only offered where facilities for the Internet based test are not available.
Internet based test
The TOEFL Internet based test has four sections and takes about 4 hours to complete:
Reading     Measures the ability to understand academic reading matter.
Listening     Measures the ability to understand English as it is used at university level.
Speaking     Measures the ability to speak English.
Writing     Measures the ability to write in a way that is appropriate for university course work.
Source: TOEFL
120 points is the highest score achievable on this test with 30 points available for each section. Scores can be viewed online 15 business days after the test date.
Paper based test
Some centres still offer the paper based (although this is generally the exception).
The TOEFL Paper based test has three sections plus a 30-minute writing test:
Section     Duration     Questions     Details
Listening Comprehension     30-40 minutes     50     Measures the ability to understand English as it is spoken in North America.
Structure and Written Expression     25 minutes     40     Measures the ability to recognize language that is appropriate for standard written English.
Reading Comprehension     55 minutes     50     Measures the ability to understand non-technical reading material.
Writing     30 minutes     1 topic     Test of Written English
Source: TOEFL
Listening Comprehension     31 to 68
Structure and Written Expression     31 to 68
Reading Comprehension     31 to 67
