TOEFL stands for Test Of English as a Foreign Language which is a standardized test for assessing the language proficiency of non-native English speakers. The test helps students to find college or university admissions in English speaking countries especially U.S and Canada and working professionals to find job or migration opportunities. TOEFL has four broad sections namely Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking. Each section is separately scored for the score range 0-30, and the overall score is between 0 and 120.
TOEFL is administered by ETS the same body that governs the GRE. People who aspire for college education or migration for career development must take the test.
Universities generally recommend a score of 25 or above in each module in the TOEFL test for college and university admissions.
TOEFL is offered as many times in a month as a computer-based test in many parts of the world. One must have valid government documents and passport to appear in the test. The test is usually taken along with other tests like GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT etc.,
