TOEFL iBT

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (or TOEFL, pronounced "toe-full") evaluates the ability of an individual to use and understand English in an academic setting. It is an admission requirement for non-native English speakers at many English-speaking colleges and universities in USA and other countries. A TOEFL score is valid for two years. The TOEFL is administered by Educational Testing Services (ETS) and is conducted at many locations in India, as an internet based test.

TOEFL iBT® Test Content

The TOEFL iBT® test is administered via the internet. There are four sections (listening, reading, speaking and writing) which take a total of about four and a half hours to complete.

Combining All Four Skills: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing During the test, you are asked to perform tasks that combine more than one skill, such as:

  • Read, listen and then speak in response to a question.

  • Listen and then speak in response to a question.

  • Read, listen and then write in response to a question.

TOEFL iBT Test Sections:
Section Time Limit Questions Tasks
Reading 60–80 minutes 36–56 questions Read 3 or 4 passages from academic texts and answer questions.
Listening 60–90 minutes 34–51 questions Listen to lectures, classroom discussions and conversations, then answer questions.

Speaking 20 minutes 6 tasks Express an opinion on a familiar topic; speak based on reading and listening tasks.
Writing 50 minutes 2 tasks Write essay responses based on reading and listening tasks; support an opinion in writing.

TOEFL iBT® Test Scores

Your scores are based on your performance on the questions in the test. You must answer at least one question each in the Reading and Listening sections, write at least one essay, and complete at least one Speaking task to receive an official score. For the TOEFL iBT® test, administered via the Internet, you will receive four scaled section scores and a total score:

  • Reading Section (Score of: 0–30)

  • Listening Section (Score of: 0–30)

  • Speaking Section (Score of: 0–30)

  • Writing Section (Score of: 0–30)

  • Total Score (0–120)

In addition to your scores, your official score record also includes performance feedback that is a reflection of your performance level and a description of the kinds of tasks that test takers within the reported score range can typically do.

There is no passing or failing TOEFL® score; individual higher education institutions and agencies set their own score requirements. TOEFL scores are valid for two years after the test date and there is no limit to the number of times you can take the test.
