The TOEFL Test


The TOEFL® Test


Since its introduction in late 2005, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Internet-based Test (iBT) format has progressively replaced the computer-based tests (CBT) and paper-based tests (PBT), although paper-based testing is still used in select areas. 


The TOEFL Ibt test measures reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. It is offered more than 50 times a year and is administered online at testing sites around the world.


The TOEFL PBT test measures reading, listening, grammar and writing skills and is currently offered only in locations where testing via the Internet is not available.


The TOEFL test is the most widely respected English-language test in the world, recognized by more than 9,000 colleges, universities and agencies in more than 130 countries, including Australia, Canada, the U.K. and the United States. Wherever you want to study, the TOEFL test can help you get there.


The TOEFL iBT® test, delivered via the Internet, is an important part of your journey to study in an English-speaking country. In addition to the test, the ETS TOEFL®Program provides tools and guides to help you prepare for the test and improve your English-language skills.


The TOEFL iBT test measures your ability to use and understand English at the university level. And it evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks.


Test is given in 1 day. The test takes about 4 hours, but with check-in you should plan to be at the test center for at least 4½ hours.


There is no limit to the number of times you can take the test, but you cannot take it more than once in a 12-day period.


If you already have a test appointment, you cannot register for another test date that is within 12 days of your existing appointment.
