Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is a standardized test to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to enroll in English-speaking universities. The test is accepted by more than 11,000 universities and other institutions in over 190 countries and territories.
TOEFL is one of the two major English-language tests in the world, the other being the IELTS.
TOEFL is a trademark of the Educational Testing Service (ETS), a private non-profit organization, which designs and administers the tests. ETS issues official score reports which are sent independently to institutions and are valid for two years following the test.
TOEFL Scores: Candidate receives 4 scaled section scores and a total score.
Each section has a score range of 0–30. These are added together for a total score of 0–120. Each skill has 4 or 5 proficiency levels, so where your score falls within that range tells you your proficiency for that skill.
